PARADE ROUTE  Opening Day Parking  Team Picture Schedule


Dear Smithfield Girls’ Softball and Little League Families:

With the snow behind us – we hope - it’s time to Play Ball! The 2018 Opening Day is but a few weeks away as volunteers in the Smithfield Girls’ Softball and Little Leagues are busy preparing for another successful season. For the first time ever, both softball and baseball will participate in a joint Opening Day celebration so that the community may properly thank and recognize those who installed the lights at Whipple Field.

In advance of this historic day in the Town of Smithfield, please carefully review the following information.

Player Drop off
Please make sure you drop your player off at St. Michael’s Church no later than 10 a.m. as roads surrounding the Whipple Field Complex and St. Michael’s will be shut down for the parade of players. After you drop off your player with their coach, park your car in one of the approved areas and secure a prime viewing location on the parade route. CLICK PARKING MAP ABOVE

Everyone Loves A Parade!

The 2018 Opening Day will begin with a parade of softball and baseball players and coaches that will begin at St. Michael’s Church and conclude in the middle of Whipple Field. Families are encouraged to line the parade route and cheer for the teams as they walk by. Once the teams have passed, all are invited to congregate in the middle of the Whipple complex for a very brief speaking program where the leagues will recognize many of the individuals who volunteered resources and their time to bring lights to the fields at Whipple.

Supporting Those in Need in Our Community

Baseball and softball teaches more than throwing, catching or hitting a ball. These youth programs also teach good character and the importance of one’s role in our community. Players are asked to bring one (or more) of the following items to St. Michael’s: mayonnaise, catsup, juices, canned ham, corned beef, beef stew, baked beans, jarred tomato sauce, syrup, mayonnaise, canned or dry milk, cookies & crackers, sugar, coffee, Jello, paper towels, napkins, tissues, toothpaste, tooth brushes, soap, deodorant or shampoo. These items will be donated to the St. Michael’s Food Pantry and the Town of Smithfield Food Pantry and distributed to those in need in our community.


Parking at Whipple Field is first-come, first-served. We strongly encourage families to take advantage of a free shuttle bus that will operate throughout the day from town-approved parking areas. These areas include: Old County School, Georgiaville Beach, Town Hall, Mendes Field, School Department, the V.F.W. Hall and until, 3 p.m., the Portuguese American Club. Please know that parking is prohibited at St. Michael’s ChurchSee the attached map for designated parking areas. Note that parking at Whipple is at your own risk. Beware of foul balls! Carpooling is strongly encouraged. CLICK PARKING MAP ABOVE

Bring Your Appetite!

The grills will be running all day and the concession stand will be fully stocked to feed the thousands that are expected to attend the Opening Day festivities. Remember, concession stand revenue helps to support the operations of both leagues.


Forms will be available at Opening Day, however families may pre-order their picture package by clicking on this link. Use the code SGSL18 to access pricing for Smithfield Girls Softball. CLICK PICTURE SCHEDULE ABOVE

SGSL Weather Related Cancellations

....via text !

Smithfield Girls Softball will be using a texting solution for weather related cancellations again this season. The instructions are quite simple; from your smart phone or computer: 

go to:  https://www.rainedout.net/team_page.php?a=45a183b2b3cc36cafbbb  where you’ll be asked to join Smithfield Girls Softball text alerts on RainedOut.

For those of you who joined last season, and have NOT changed your cell phone numbers, you need not do anything – your information has been carried over.

You may request to have the same alerts sent via email by following the email instructions at the same website. You can also activate the application by texting SGSL2016 to 84483 

SGSL has not set up Private Groups, so you can ignore the 3rd step.
