Cal-Mum Youth Baseball Opening Day 2014

by Maria on May 3rd, 2014

When Kelley's Heroes first started, most of its members lived in Caledonia. Now, 23 years later, our members live in five counties. Still, we consider the Caledonia-Mumford community our home. The community is very supportive of our endeavors, and we reciprocate by participating in community events.

Cal-Mum Youth Baseball is a great program for the youth of Caledonia. Depending on their age, many members of Kelley's Heroes either played on a team or sat on the sidelines and watched their children - and grandchildren - play on a team. Opening Day always begins with a short parade that starts in front of the fire hall and ends at Tenent Park behind the fire hall. The high school band marched at the front of the parade and Kelley's Heroes brought up the rear. Together, the two bands played The Star-Spangled Banner for the opening ceremony. There was a spritz of rain during the ceremony, but the rain held off for most of the day and the opening day games went off as planned.

It was impressive that eighteen Heroes marched in this three-song parade. Liz, Candy, Bob and Anya came from Churchville and Larry came all the way from Clyde. Little James marched next to his mother and played his recorder.

Next Saturday, Kelley's Heroes will be playing in another little parade in Rochester called the Lilac Parade.
