This morning, the streets outside Town Hall in West New York were flooded with hundreds of children excited for the start of the upcoming baseball season.

The official beginning of the season was celebrated with a police escorted parade from Town Hall to the Little League Field; followed by a commencement ceremony.

Police director Robert Antolos told Hudson TV that his favorite part of the event was “seeing the smile on the kids faces, seeing everyone come together as a family here in West New York, celebrating great weather and an exciting baseball season starting for our children.”
