It's "Opening Day" for the Pleasanton Girls Softball League (PGSL) and the boys Little League teams, delayed a week because of rain and soggy field conditions a week ago.
The Pleasanton Foothill Little League (PFLL) will launch its 2010 season with a ceremony at 10 a.m. at the new Bernal Community Park fields, where it will play its games this season.
The two other boys leagues--the Pleasanton American Little League (PALL) and the Pleasanton National Little League (PNLL)—will hold their opening day ceremonies at Sports Park.
For the girls, Terri Molina, the PGSL's publicity manager, said opening day ceremonies have been re-scheduled for next week, but league play starts today in Sports Park as scheduled.
The Foothill Little League will start its games after the ceremonies, or about 11 a.m. Because of limited parking at the new Bernal fields, the league will provide free shuttle service between Pleasanton Middle School and the fields from 9 a.m. to 1p.m.
League officials warned fans that Pleasanton police plan to enforce "No Parking" rules along Valley Avenue and the Bernal park entrance.
The shuttle's pick up and return area will be located along the Pleasanton Middle School bus bays. No food or drinks are allowed on the shuttle bus at any time. Also, the shuttle will be unable to accommodate equipment, such as bat bags, and chairs.
Players and fans are advised to drop these items off at the Bernal fields prior to parking at the middle school and boarding the shuttle.
