What is the Opening Day Parade?

Every year Inwood Little League celebrates Opening Day with a big parade that includes all players, parents, supporting organizations and a marching band. Players and parents are asked to gather with their team at 30 Nagle Avenue at 11:30am (teams meet in the schoolyard by the Nagle Y). The players must wear their full uniforms (but don’t bring gloves or cleats or bats). Parents are asked to march behind their respective teams.

Check the Calendar for dates & times 

The parade starts promptly at 12pm with a police escort and walks up Nagle to Dyckman to Broadway to 218th St. The north side of Broadway is closed while we walk in the parade.  We turn left on 218st and proceed to the Opening Day ceremonies on field 6 located in the Inwood Park peninsula.

Only players, coaches, and league administrators are allowed to enter the field for the ceremony. Parents and guests must remain outside the field. The ceremony, which includes short speeches by the league president as well as other dignitaries, will last about 45 minutes. All players will be uniformly dismissed to their parents after the ceremony.

There will be 2 games played after the ceremony: one Majors game on field 6, and one Seniors game on field 1. You are welcome to stay and watch.
