It's time for little league baseball and softball!
On Saturday, both the Plum Baseball & Softball Association and the Riverview Athletic Association will hold opening day events for their teams.
This is the first time children in Plum are playing with the Plum Baseball & Softball Association, a new athletic group the took over after the Plum Borough Athletic Association disbanded due to lease violations and criminal charges against its former president.
The PBSA has been able to keep things on schedule and begin the season on time. The Pittsburgh Pirates also have made a $5,000 donation toward the organization.
On Saturday, there will be a ceremony at 11:30 a.m. at the borough fields along Ross Hollow Road. The president of the the Pirate organization, Frank Coonelly, and Pirates players Michael McKenry and Josh Harrison will be attending. Games will begin at 1 p.m.
Riverview Athletic Association teams are planning on kicking off opening day with a parade. Teams are scheduled to march from the Verona Borough Building to Riverside Park in Oakmont. The parade begins at 9 a.m.
Afterward, games will be played at Riverside Park and Cribbs Field in Verona.
