South Maryland Little League Kicks Off the 2018 Season with Opening Day on Saturday, April 21 at Bottner Field.

We'll have the usual parade of players, pictures, and skills competitions.

To help with scheduling for the kids and to keep the day a reasonable length for all our parents and players, we will hold the Parade in the MIDDLE of the Opening Day.  Opening Day will kick off with the T Ball and Coach Pitch divisions participating in their skills competitions and getting their pictures, followed by the Parade with all the coaches and players from South Maryland.  After the parade, the older divisions (Machine Pitch to Juniors) will have their pictures and skills competition (if applicable).   

The full schedule of events is located at the bottom of this email and on the DAA Baseball Home Page.

Attire:  Players should be dressed in their team uniform. Cleats are optional - tennis shoes are fine since it's a long day for the kids.  Coaches should wear their SMLL hats and shirts.

What to Bring:  Folding chair.  Sunscreen.  Cash or check for photographs.

What Not to Bring:  Baseballs - there are too many kids for hard baseballs to be thrown.  Feel free to bring a tennis ball for the kids to play catch.

Snack Shack:  Hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, soda, water, and other snacks and drinks will be available all day.  Please bring small bills if possible to help make change.

Photographs:  Order forms are distributed with uniforms to each team.  There will be extra order forms at the field.  Please remember Sports Memories only takes CASH OR CHECK as payment.  

Bottner:  Bottner is a United States Air Force Base and we are their guests.  No alcohol, pets, tobacco, or firearms are permitted at Bottner.   Parking is NOT permitted on Bottner road itself, make sure you park inside the gate that leads to the gravel road to the field.  Please obey the speed limit of 5 mph.  

 

Bottner Field Address:

3290 Bottner Rd

Davidsonville, MD (might show on GPS as Gambrills, MD)

**Please navigate to the end of Bottner Road. You will have to weave through road barriers as the field is located on an United States Air Force installation. Just before the gate to the Air Force buildings, take the gravel road on your left. It is VERY important that you obey the speed limits posted.
