Joining the youngsters in their annual rite will be community and school groups, including the Chesapeake High School baseball team. Grand marshal duties will be performed by WJZ-TV's sports anchor, John Buren.

After a brief ceremony at the complex, opening day games will begin at 11 a.m.

Food and refreshments will be on sale throughout the day.

"With the large number of players and their families participating in this year's event, we suggest car pooling if at all possible," said Corinna Magee, LSYB president.
