Wade Hampton Little League
Opening Day 2021
Saturday, March 6th
It’s FINALLY here...the spring baseball and softball season has begun! To celebrate our upcoming season, we have planned a fun day for our families to kick off what we expect to be WHLL’s best season yet! Our Opening Day will be held on Saturday, March 6th. Not only will our players be playing their first games but we will also have several fun activities including player raffles, Home Run Derby, Run the Bases Competition, a food truck and much, much more! We will also have vendors on hand so please stop by their tables and thank them for their support of our league!
In addition to special Opening Day raffles for our players, our Opening Day Raffle winners will be announced at 12:00 pm. Winners do not have to be present to win and we will be streaming the drawing on our Facebook page. Thank you to all of our players and their families for the overwhelming support of our raffle this year! Don’t forget that all players who sell all 15 raffle tickets will be entered into a drawing for a $50 concession stand gift certificate! All raffle tickets are due to your coach by March 4th. THANK YOU to our sponsors for providing our awesome giveaways this year. If you have a business that would also like to get involved with our Opening Day, please let us know!

Our concession stand will be open ALL DAY! Cash or venmo.
This year our individual and team pictures will be on March 20th. More details to come soon. We will have a special “selfie” area at our entrance and we encourage all of our families to take pictures and post on social media using the hashtag: #whllopeningday2021.
We have made every effort to provide our families with a fun day while also adhering to all Covid regulations. All players must wear a mask while in the dugouts as required by LL rules. All spectators are encouraged to wear a mask and practice social distancing while at this event. Our bleachers will be closed so bring a chair or picnic blanket to cheer for your favorite player!
We are excited about the direction of our league and can’t wait to celebrate our future and past accomplishments together on Saturday, March 6th. In the event of rain, we will hold our Opening Day on Saturday, March 13th. Please reach out to your coach if you have any questions. As always, thank you for your support of Wade Hampton Little League! We couldn’t do this without our parents, players, sponsors and coaches.
