Saturday, March 4: Opening Day & Photo Day

Join us for some fun on March 4 to celebrate the start of the season.

Updated Monday March 13, 2017 by El Cerrito Youth Baseball.

We hope everyone enjoyed Opening Day!  Thanks to those families who came out to support the league.

All teams will gather in uniform at El Cerrito High School at 9:30 am on March 4, before the parade starts at 10:00 am.  Please gather on the Eureka side at Ashbury.  Led this year by the Korematsu Middle School marching band, the parade will head down Ashbury and up Moeser to Cerrito Vista Park.

Opening Day cannot happen without member volunteers.  Opening Day is one of the best opportunities for families to earn league hours to qualify for a parent participation refund.  Numerous job openings remain.  Here is a link for the signup sheet:  OPENING DAY VOLUNTEERS.  Volunteers will receive credit for time attending any organizational meetings.

ECYB, in conjunction with ECHS Baseball, is giving back to our community through a Canned Food Drive.  Please bring a can (or a couple of cans) of food to the starting point of the parade at El Cerrito High School the morning of March 4.  Donation bins will be at the corner of Ashbury and Eureka.  ECHS Baseball players will be at Opening Day collecting the canned food and will deliver it to a local food bank.

Opening Day is also photo day.  The team photo schedule is attached.  An email will be sent out before the end of February with order forms, links for online ordering and payment, and other information.  When you order, remember that certain packages, including basic as well as larger packages, offer a rebate to ECYB from the photographer.  Use the coupon ECYB to indicate free delivery through the league (and not directly by mail to your home at your cost).  Each team should identify a photo day coordinator to gather players 15 minutes before the appointed time and help distribute the order forms and information.

Opening Day and Photo Day will still go forward in a light rain.  In the unlikely event that we get rained out, we will hold a makeup Photo Day on Sunday, March 19, so please save that date for now.

If any team must schedule a makeup photo day, or request any change in the schedule, please contact league Photo Day Coordijnator Salvador Godinez at Salvador_godinez@hotmail.com. 

See you at Opening Day!

"Are the forms or link for ordering photos available? I can't find them and would like to know how much money they are. Also, when will the players receive their uniforms since the parade is Saturday?"

"Hi Bridget, I am hoping someone got back to you already but didn't want to leave this unanswered! Most teams picked up their uniforms tonight (3/2) and will distribute at practice OR at the parade. You can order pictures online (be sure to use code "ecyb" to avoid any charges) or you can just fill out the form at the photo area and pay there. The prices vary and you can choose a package to fit your budget! Here is a link to the picture website: http://lzphoto.zenfolio.com/f685777935 In case you need more info, there is a story about photo day on the league home page but it is way at the bottom of the list."
