Opening Ceremonies - Saturday, April 13

Opening Ceremonies are this Saturday, April 13th. It will mark Myers Park Trinity's 61st anniversary and 62ndconsecutive year of baseball. The ceremonies will include a bagpiper and Boy Scout Color Guard. We will honor our winning all-star teams from last year and display their championship banners. Information will be given about the launch of our 2013 Capital Campaign. And of course there will be the ceremonial first pitch.

The day begins early with AL and softball games at 9:00 before Opening Ceremonies. Coaches and players not playing at 9:00 are asked to arrive for Opening Ceremonies in uniform by 10:00.  Major League and National League players are asked to line up on the outside of the fence on the 3rd base side.  T-Ball, American league, and Softball teams are asked to line up on the outside of the fence on the first base side.  Teams will parade in together starting at 10:15 and Opening Ceremonies will begin at 10:30. Games will continue at 12:00, 2:00 and 4:00. 

The MPTLL Capital Campaign video will be shown at the park under a tent on a widescreen TV, running on a continuous loop throughout the day. It is a brief, but well done documentary about Myers Park Trinity produced by Little Diversified Architectural Consulting. For the first time, you will see what our facilities could look like after a successful Capital Campaign. It is quite impressive, and exciting. You will probably recognize some familiar faces from among the MPTLL family of players, coaches, parents and other volunteers talking in the video about why Myers Park is a so special to them.

Arrive early because parking could be difficult. Please park in either our main upper lot on Billingsley Road, the large overflow lot at the Department of Social Services next door, or down at the Grier Heights fields. Do not park across Billingsley Road in the Annuvia lot, next to the new field at the county gas pumps or drive through area, in any unmarked spaces, or on any grassy areas. Cars could be ticketed and possibly towed for parking in unauthorized areas. 

Finally we would like to make you aware of the 2013 Charlotte Racefest, a road race scheduled for this Saturday, April 13th.  A link to the race’s route map is below.  The race could cause delays and/or detours and we wanted to provide the link below to help you plan accordingly.  

Join us for Opening Ceremonies and come check out the Capital Campaign video while at the park. This is a big day for Myers Park Trinity Little League.
