We are excited to kick off the 2018 Glen Ellyn Softball season with an Opening Day parade, festivities, and games.  This event will take place on April 21st at 10:00 AM for all House League teams on the Ackerman softball fields (outside).  Opening Day will begin with a short parade, where the players will march down the walking path on the far west side of the softball fields.  

Parents, family, and friends will line either side of the walking path and cheer on the teams as they march to Field 2.  After all teams have reached Field 2, we will ask parents, family, and friends to join us and fill in the area behind your daughter’s team.  We will welcome the teams, throw out the ceremonial first pitch, and honor America with the playing of our National Anthem. 


After the festivities conclude at Field 2, all Pixie and Pigtail teams will play their first games at 11:00 AM.  Ponytail, Bobtail, and Juniors games will be played at Ackerman at the times noted below.  Please refer to your game schedule on Quickscores for the field location of those games.
