On Saturday, Pacifica National Little League players, coaches and families ignored the distant rain clouds and had their opening day ceremony. Flags were waved and noise makers went off as PNLL's President John Boulland spoke to the crowd about the recent field improvements and snack shack upgrades.
Boulland closed with a short appreciation to the sponsors that made it all possible.
Each team paraded as a crowd filled with grandparents, parents, friends and siblings cheered them on.
The Star Spangled Banner was performed by guitarist Nick Brown, a Pacifica native. Players listened in their dugouts with their caps off waiting for the rain to stop.
Unfortunately, the thunder, lightning and hail left the fields unplayable. It was overall a great ceremony for PNLL and players are excited to get the season started.
