When Vienna Little League held its first opening-day ceremony on April 16 for the first time since 2019, there was something new in this year’s event.
There was a parade of multiple teams onto Nance Field, where the festivities were held. In past years, there was no parade of teams at the ceremony. Players and teams just gathered in the outfield grass on Nance, with no real organization to their masses.
This year’s parade of players added to the length of the ceremony by about 20 minutes.
Local Little Leagues in Arlington, Great Falls and McLean have included a parade of teams during their opening-day ceremonies for years. So Vienna Little League also has now joined the masses in that parade regard.
