A brand new league of their own Selectman Scott Brazis told his colleagues at Wednesday night’s meeting that this year’s Opening Day festivities for Saugus Little Leaguers is going to be “groundbreaking” – especially the parade. Why? Some of his colleagues wanted to know. Because the Saugus American and National Leagues “have joined forces.” The newly-formed Saugus Little League has announced it will host its annual Opening Day Parade on Saturday, April 20 at 9 a.m. This year, the Saugus National and Saugus American Leagues will march as one. Parade participants will assemble at 8:30 a.m. at the Oaklandvale School, which is located at 266 Main St. With a police and fire escort, the marchers will leave the Oaklandvale School at 9 a.m. and head north up Main Street. They plan to arrive at the Elks Field, which is located at 401 Main St., at about 10 a.m. in time for the Opening Day Ceremony. Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree and the Board of Selectmen are expected to participate. Tom Whittredge, executive president of the Saugus Little League, says he’s expecting 300 players to participate in Opening Day.
