There should be no cause for alarm if children are spotted walking across Main Street this Saturday morning. Those children are the representatives from the six teams in the Atmore T-Ball League and they are taking part in the Opening Day parade.
The parade will start at 9 a.m. and the parade route is from the Atmore Area YMCA and Community Center to the T-Ball fields behind Heritage Park.
Following the parade will be the Opening Day Ceremony at approximately 9:30 a.m. Festivities for Opening Day 2007 will be a prayer said by Haskell Dunn, Betty Warren taking a cut at the tee and the first pitch being thrown by a member of the Atmore community.
"I just hope for a good turnout from not only the parents of the children, but also from the Atmore community," said James Lewis, league coordinator. "And I would like to say thank you to Tammy Graham, Ross Terry and Johnny Rogers from the Y. They have been a great help in getting this season off the ground."
