Northeast Seattle Little League Opening Day Games And Festivities This Week-End

The Northeast Seattle Little League ( NESLL) Mid Season Baseball Classic (replacing Opening Day) is happening all day on Saturday at Laurelhurst Park starting at 9:30am with the last two games starting at 5pm, and concluding with the Hit-a-Thon on Sunday.

There will be a Hot Dog cart, Espresso Truck, entertainment, Home Run Derby, music, announcers and special presentations between each game.

NESL will also be honoring the over 60 sponsors who support the League, may of whom live in the neighborhood. Last year, several representatives from neighborhood businesses were on hand to throw out the first pitch of each game, including Beverly Schaefer, owner of Katterman's Pharmacy who has sponsored NESLL teams for over 40 years and Kosta Varlamos of Varlamos Pizza.
"Our long tradition of highly entertaining announcers, food vendors, and over 200 of our uniformed little leaguers are guaranteed to keep fans happy throughout," Barry with NESL told us.
