The Bogota Baseball Organization opened it's 32nd season yesterday. The day started with a parade of teams down Main St to Scully field in Olsen Park. Mayor McHale and BBO President Nick Barese lead the players & parent though town. The marchers were escorted by the Bogota Police clearing the way and trucks from the Fire Dept. bring up the rear to help announce the beginning of a new season. Over 200 Girls And Boys representing teams from Tee Ball to 12years Baseball & Softball players showed off their team spirit as they heard the applause from the residents standing along the parade route.
When the teams arrived at Olsen Park Mayor McHale gave the first " Play Ball" call and wished all the teams the best of luck. A moment was taken to salute the Country with the National Anthem, the teams from Bogart Memorial and Quick Check played the first Tee- Ball game. The first Pee- Wee game was Tom's Service going against Bishop Photo.
