Opening Night and Team Picture Information

Zionsville Little League’s 64th season officially gets underway this Friday, April 21 with a long-standing special tradition of the ZLL Opening Ceremonies.

The following are details that should be helpful for players and families that evening.

The ceremony takes place on Field 1 which is in the far northwest corner of Lions Park near the tennis and basketball courts. Eighty-seven teams will be represented that evening (42 baseball, 18 softball, 26 T-ball and 1 Challenger). Prior to the ceremony, your team will gather on either Field 4 or Field 2. Please click here see the list to see where your team should meet.

PLAYERS SHOULD ARRIVE AT EITHER FIELD 2 OR FIELD 4 NO LATER THAN 5:30 PM EXCEPT THOSE TEAMS WHOSE PICTURES ARE BEING TAKEN BEFORE OPENING CEREMONIES BEGIN. Instructions on team photos are further below.

The program begins promptly at 6 pm with the Parade of Teams.

Parents and guests – once you have left your child with his or her team’s coach, please proceed to the audience seating area in the Field 1 outfield. It is not necessary for you to stay with your child in the infield during the ceremony unless you are a coach. We suggest that you bring a chair or blanket to sit on in the grass.

Players should be dressed in their uniforms and hats. There is no need to bring bats, gloves or any other equipment unless they are playing that night.

Coaches will receive a separate set of instructions later this week on lining up and the parading onto the field.

The program will conclude at approximately 7 pm followed by several games that night.

With more than 300 families expected that night, please build in ample time for parking at the Lions Park lots as well as on the surrounding streets. It’s a good idea to carpool as much as possible. Please check the Zionsville Little League Facebook page, Twitter feed or communication directly from your coach about last minute details regarding Opening Ceremonies.

If you have any questions about Opening Ceremonies, please contact JoJo Rinebold at jojorinebold@hotmail.com or 317-445-2202 (cell).

If anyone has T-ball related questions, please contact Ken Kibbe at kkibbe@bagcoz.org.
