‘Play Ball!’ Heard Throughout The Township On Opening Day

The 2018 baseball season officially got underway April 14 with both township baseball leagues holding their opening-day festivities.

This is a milestone year for both leagues. The Franklin Township Baseball League is celebrating its 65th year, while the Franklin-South Bound Brook Little League is celebrating its 60th year.

Both leagues held parades to their respective complexes, followed by team introductions and other acknowledgements.

Then, after renditions of the national anthem, it was time to play ball.
