After waiting all offseason to get the campaign underway, rain cancelled the Lake Bluff Youth Baseball Association’s first day of games.

That didn’t stop the LBYBA’s planned opening ceremony Saturday, April 14. With a little help from the Lake Bluff Fire Department, the planned celebration of opening day went on as scheduled.
