Challenger Division Begins At Little League Opening Day
The Rockaway Little League had their opening day parade last Saturday as 600 marchers took part in the ceremonies to celebrate the official beginning of the 56th annual baseball and softball season. The little league season began for the Challenger Division, a new baseball/softball program which enables boys and girls with physical and mental challenges to participate in either the sport of baseball or softball. Assemblywoman Audrey Pheffer took part in throwing out the first softball pitch. Congressman Anthony Weiner poses with the kids from the Challenger Division.
