The weather was cool, but the smiles were warm as Clear-Ridge Little League's Opening Day parade headed south on Narragansett to Hale Park to start the 2024 season.

A number of others turned out to show support for the kids, including 23rd Ward Ald. Silvana Tabares, 13th Ward Ald. Marty Quinn, State Rep. Angelica “Angie” Guerrero-Cuellar (D-22nd) and State Sen. Mike Porfirio (D-11th).

Founded in the 1950s, CRLL has provided athletic oppor- tunities to thousands of boys and girls in the neighborhood--teaching children the importance of physical fitness, mental focus, teamwork, sacrifice for a larger cause and good sportsmanship.
