This year opening day will be on February 23. We are excited and looking forward to seeing everyone. The following is some information about the day’s activities to help you plan.
Schedule: Please see the schedules below for your picture time and game time. Only Machine Pitch and TeeBall will be playing games on opening day.
Parking: We will be opening the overflow parking that is between the park and Chaires Elementary School. The gate to this field is located just east of the main park entrance. There will be a gate open on the south side of the lot by the Dreams field through which you will be able to pass through fence. We are attaching the map again so you can orient yourselves.
Concession Stand: The concession stand will open at 10:00 to 4:00 and will be serving our full menu including hotdogs, hamburgers and cheeseburgers. If you are interested in starting the season off right by volunteering some time to help in the stand, please use this link to sign up for a time slot. And thanks for your help!
FSU Bat Girls: Sports Marketing from FSU will be at the park starting at Noon. They will be set up next to the concession stand and will be handing out posters and schedules. Please stop by their table and say hi.
Chaires Little League Day at FSU: Chaires will have a fan day at the March 31 baseball game between the Noles and Boston College. The game is at 1:00. We will be selling $3.00 tickets at opening day at the hat table. We will only have 200 tickets to sell so please get them early. Players will be able to join the FSU Baseball team on the field during the national anthem. We will be selling some current and past Richardson hats at a table for $16 each.
Opening Day Ceremony: The opening ceremony will include the parade of teams, special guest Michelle Milligan will be singing the national anthem. The Lincoln High School color guard will be there and our first pitch will be thrown by FSU football legend and Heisman Trophy winner Charlie Ward.
