MOOSSEJAWTODAY.COM -- Things might have been a touch delayed thanks to the snow and cool weather last week, but Moose Jaw Minor Girls Fastball is quickly hitting full speed for the coming season.

The first order of business will see the league holding their annual Clean Up the Park days on Wednesday, Apr. 24 and Thursday, Apr. 25 from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Optimist Park.

The event was originally scheduled for the previous weekend, but with snow still on the ground, the plan was switched to midweek.

Folks are asked to bring their own rake and gloves, with garbage bags supplied as volunteers go over the diamonds and remove all the trash and debris that has accumulated over the winter.

That’s all to get things ready for the traditional Opening Day ceremonies, which will take place on Monday, Apr. 29 at Optimist Park.

The event sees each of the league’s teams across all age divisions gathering on Diamond 1 for greetings before the official opening pitch of the season is delivered.

Teams are asked to gather at the concession shack at around 5:30 p.m., with the event itself taking place at 5:45 p.m. Teams are asked to show up in their jerseys, and the first games of the season will take place immediately after.

Be sure to keep an eye on and their social media pages for regular updates on games throughout the season.
