Who: All players and their families are welcome to participate in the parade.
What to Wear: Players should wear jerseys, hats, and sneakers for the walk. Non-players can wear Falls Church red. We encourage you to bring your team banner to show your support for our sponsors.
Where: We will meet near West and Greenwich Street. (We are #32 in the parade.) See the map and the parade order for more details.
At the meeting point we will have several great volunteers, led by Chris Thompson, our VP of Operations. When you see Chris, please give him a pat on the back for an incredible season ensuring our fields are ready to play.

To participate, players should:
Arrive at Mason District Park at 9:45 AM.
Wear their current little league team jersey. (Only players wearing these jerseys will be allowed on the field.)
Bring only their gloves. (All other equipment will be provided.)
Do not bring items for the player to sign. (To make the most of our time, no autographs will be permitted.)
for the player—along with your name—by May 15. A limited number of questions will be selected ahead of time. If yours is chosen, you will get to read it in front of the whole group.
Access to the Field
Only players and volunteers will be allowed on the fields. Families are encouraged to line the field fences, where they can watch the event.
Mason District is asking for 40 volunteers to run baseball clinics, act as on field “security,” and perform other duties. Please sign up for a specific role using this Sign Up Genius.
Volunteers should arrive at Mason District Park at 9:00 AM to help set-up. At that time, they will receive instructions and a special wristband that will give them access to the fields. FCKLL managers and coaches who volunteer to run an on-field clinic should bring their FCKLL equipment.
