Councilwoman Bonner said, “There’s no better way to spend a beautiful spring day than opening day of the Little League season. These children wait all winter to get started and you can really feel their enthusiasm. Thanks to the North Shore Little League volunteers, well over 800 children are able to participate to help make the season fun for everyone.”
