Castle Hill Little League had a ball celebrating its Opening Day Ceremony on Saturday, April 29. The time honored tradition began with a parade starting at the corner of Castle Hill and Lafayette avenues and proceeding to the league’s field on Zerega Avenue for the on-field ceremony. In honor of this year’s ‘Honoring Our Hometown Heroes’ theme, the league paid homage to 41st Precinct detective Herawattie Jeeuth, 46th Precinct police officer Sammy Perez and 43rd Precinct detective Eric Hernandez for their dedicated service to the community they protect and serve.

Detective Jeeuth proudly displayed her award plaque recognizing her service and dedication.
