The Closing Ceremonies for Rookie Junior and Rally Caps will take place on Sat 17th June 3.30pm at the Myrtle Park Majors diamond. All players get to run the bases on the Majors “big kids” field.
The Rally Caps teams should all meet outside the field behind the first base dugout, and all Rookie Junior teams should gather by the 3rd base dugout. When we are ready to start the Rally Caps teams will enter first. The players on each Rally Cap team will run the bases from 1st to Home. Once they get to home they will be directed to the infield area to sit with their team. The kids should be following closely behind one another – they do not need to wait for the player ahead of them to finish running.
Once all the Rally Caps teams have finished running the bases and are sitting in the infield with their coaches, we will have the Rookie Junior teams enter. They will run the bases starting from 3rd base and ending at 2nd base. From their they will take their place just behind the base paths starting close to 1st base.
When all the teams have entered the field we will have a brief speech from the MSLL President. We will then ask one coach from each team to come and collect the medals for their team. The formal ceremony will then end, and teams can find their own space on the field to present each player with their participation medals. Rally Caps teams can also hand our the player skills certificates at this time.
We expect the entire ceremony to take approximately 30 minutes.
