It's that time of year and soon bats will be hitting balls at the fields in Harbor Springs. Opening day for Harbor Springs Little League is Saturday, May 3. The Harbor Springs Little League Commission is also holding a fundraiser that day. The opening day parade starts at 9:00 am downtown on Main Street at the intersection of State Street and continues to the fields off Hoyt St. The first baseball game starts at 11:00.
There will be games all day on all three little league fields The fundraiser will be BBQ chicken and pulled pork sandwiches, potato salad, beans, and drinks at the concession stand. The cost is $8.00 per person or $30 per family. Lunch will start being served at 11:00 am and will go until 5:00 pm. Some local businesses have stepped up and are contributing to make this fundraiser a success.
"We appreciate the support of all local businesses that buy a banner every year that you see hanging on the baseball fences," the Commision noted.
There will be a couple of special events and speakers planned for the opening pitch at 11:00, so come to the ballfields, eat a great lunch, watch our area youth play baseball, and support Little League. If you do not want to eat, there will be a donation table. All of the proceeds are going to be used for much needed repairs to the fields' irrigation system, facility maintenance, and overall field repair. See you on May 3!.
