Little League events hit Shelburne this weekend

The sun has come out, finally, and the sound of a cracking bat and the smell of Snack Shack cheeseburgers is in the air. It’s officially Little League season, and Shelburne Little League, which includes players from Shelburne, Charlotte, and Hinesburg, starts its season with several events this weekend.

Opening Day festivities kick off with the traditional parade through town on Saturday, May 5 at 8:45 a.m. The players will walk from the Village Green to the baseball fields behind town hall, where there will be food, a raffle, a bouncy house, face painting, baseball games, and a home run derby.

On Sunday, May 6 at 12:30 p.m. at the Shelburne Town Fields, Shelburne Little League is hosting a free Scotts Major League Baseball Pitch Hit & Run Competition. Boys and girls from ages 7 to 14 will compete to prove their mettle with pitching, hitting, and running contests. Winners will advance to the next level, Sectionals, with the opportunity to win and compete in a national competition.

All participants must bring a copy of their birth certificate and have their parent or guardian fill out a registration/waiver form prior to the start of the competition.
