In regards to a statement made Saturday, April 26 at the opening day of Little League it was stated that the outgoing president Mike DeSimone started the opening day ceremony some eight years ago.

Open day ceremonies started when Little League was started back in 1983 by Lonnie Stanley and it has been an opening day ceremony ever since. I know, I was there.
