We are only a few short days away from 2015 OBR's Spring "Opening Day!"
Here are a few of the day's exciting activities.....
Opening ceremonies will begin at 9:00 but team pictures begin at 8:30 for some. Opening ceremonies will be a parade of all players with their respective teams, a special singing of the National Anthem and a ceremonial "first pitch."
Attached (and below) is the schedule for team and individual photos--please note your time and arrive early and in full uniform ready to go...order forms are being handed out at practices this week.
We also will have a silent auction to raise money for the league...some of the exciting items include: Magic tickets, Gator football and baseball tickets, an opportunity to throw the first pitch at a UCF baseball game, several baseball-related product items....and much more!!!
And MOST exciting...OBR will be raffling off bikes!!! Your players will receive (at practice this week), two tickets to sell....and there are many more where those came from....tickets are $10 a piece and the more you buy, the better you chance to win!!
Our excellent concession stand will be up and running, so bring your appetite!
The weather looks great and it is sure to be a super day!!
