It was a beautiful day for baseball, despite the wicked storm the night before. Athletes and their families enjoyed a sunny Opening Day for Shelburne Little League, which includes children from Shelburne, Charlotte and Hinesburg. At top, hats off alongside Champ, the Vermont Lake Monsters mascot, who joins in for the national anthem. Named after MLB minor-league teams, the Bats, Riverdogs, Honeybees, Bandits, and Mudcats marched with their teammates and the rest of league from the village green, around the center of town, and into the ballfields. A busy snack shack, a bouncy house, an awards ceremony, exposition games and a home-run derby filled the day.
