Carnarvon Ball Club opens its season with fanfare Sunday in Oak Bay.
“It’s an opportunity for everybody to get together, meet their teams, and they have a bit of a parade into the diamond area,” says Crystal Stove, a volunteer with the club who helps organize the opening ceremony committee. “We’ll have the first pitch, a big group photo and that’s it. It just opens the season.”
The opening of the baseball and softball season kicks off with a visit by Harvey the HarbourCat hopefully around 9:30 a.m. Players get their uniforms and then the speeches thanking sponsors nd supporters start at 10 a.m.
At 10:30 a.m., Oak Bay Mayor Nils Jensen is up for the opening baseball pitch and MLA Andrew Weaver throws the first softball of the season.
