Opening Day for the Pleasanton Girls Softball League (PGSL) and the boys Little League teams has been cancelled due to poor field conditions resulting from heavy afternoon rainfall yesterday and earlier in the week.
Mark Spiller, the city's community services manager, posted a cancellation notice late yesterday after evaluating the fields.
He will decide today if games can be played on Sunday. That information will be available here as well as at the city's sports Website, www.pleasantonsports.org.
The Pleasanton Foothill Little League (PFLL) had planned to launch its 2010 season with a ceremony at 9 a.m. today at the new Bernal Community Park fields featuring Randy Hahn, the San Jose Sharks announcer, as the host for the opening day ceremonies. Congressman Jerry McNerney (D-Pleasanton) and Mayor Jennifer Hosterman were scheduled to speak as well as 2009 Hall-of-Famer Rod Woodson.
For the girls, opening day ceremonies were planned on girls softball fields 6 and 7 in Sports Park with U.S. Army Cpl. Elizabeth Bailey Wafflard, Pleasanton's newest Sentinel, throwing out the first pitch.
The leagues will announce their schedules today if the fields are cleared for play on Sunday.
