Volunteers pose with Lyons Mayor Christopher Getty, McCook Mayor Jeff Tobolski, & White Sox Mascot Southpaw.
Lyons-McCook Little League celebrated the start of their 2015 season with their annual opening ceremony festivities held at Veteran’s Park baseball fields in Lyons on Sunday, May 3rd.
All Lyons-McCook little league teams and their families were invited to come out and enjoy a day of face painting, food from concessions, tacos, music, and pictures with the Chicago White Sox Mascot, South Paw.
“We are excited for the upcoming season and we couldn’t have pulled the day off without the help of so many great volunteers,” said Lyons-McCook Little League President Rich Polich. “During a time when some communities are losing teams we are actually added teams to our league.”
Polich said they have added two additional teams this season.
Each team was announced on the field and both mayors, Mayor Jeff Tobolski of McCook and Mayor Christopher Getty of Lyons, threw out celebratory first pitches.
“The Lyons-McCook Little League has done a fantastic job of providing local families with a baseball program that we are proud of,” said Lyons Mayor Christopher Getty.
The Veteran’s Park baseball fields in Lyons will serve as both the home and practice fields for all Lyons-McCook Little League games. The season will run from now until the end of July.
