The contest is scheduled for Saturday, April 21 (MFLL Picture Day) at the Ben Franklin Elementary Softball field from 8:30am to noon. Falls Little League is back to having Picture Day and Opening Day on that same Saturday, so that should help us get more kids! …and we’re way overdue for nice weather! We’ll also will be inviting all area select teams to participate again this year.
