After a cold, snowy winter season, the first day of spring blew up on us with a beautiful 80 degrees! Saturday, March 20, 2010 was Opening Day for the North Wake County Baseball Association at the Factory Fields in Wake Forest. One of the largest local leagues for youth baseball, the NWCBA has been our client since just last year. We enjoy a great relationship with them thanks to Tim Wheeler, Mike Marshall, Ken Shuey and many coaches and team managers we’ve worked with over the past year.
Opening Day festivities include appearances by Wool E. Bull, mascot for the Durham Bulls (at bottom) and the Chik-Fil-A Cow. There are inflatables, a monster truck, clinics and contests for all who attend. The first pitch, or pitches are thrown out by alumni of the Association. This year five former players, all headed to college to play ball did the honors.
The season runs through the spring, with another season planned for the fall. We’ll be shooting lots of games, so look for more of the NWCBA here before too long. Play ball!
