2017 Needham Little League Opening Day Sponsored By Muzi Chevy

Well, the Needham little league opening day was another great success this year! The teams of coaches and volunteers including Rick Tacelli and Stephen Mortimer put on an incredible event that is fully supported by the entire community.

The 2017 Needham Little Opening Day was Sunday April 30th at Defazio Park.

The teams had have their annual parade from Green's field at 11am and arrived at DeFazio around 11:30am to start the festivities. The weather held for the morning with some rain moving in for the afternoon. Very similar conditions to the 2016 opening day.

The highlight of the 2017 Opening Day had to be Red Sox player Hanley Ramirez who made it over to Defazio to throw out the first pitch! Along with Hanley, Wally the Green Monster was on hand to cheer on the Needham teams at the start of their season. 

The Muzi Chevy team is so proud to be a part of this annual event. It is a impressive display of community engagement and we look forward to it each and every year.

Check out this great video below of Hanley's arrival at the field.

The 2015 Needham Little League Opening Day was a great success! The weather was warm and sunny and the turnout was huge. Red Sox great Luis Tiant was one hand, so was Wally the Green Monster, and of course the Muzi Chevy team was there to entertain with a softball toss game and a cornhole toss.

These all went very quickly. Even the boxes were a hit. We will have to bring more next year.

Everyone enjoyed playing the games.

We also had the brand new 2015 Chevy Colorado on display for all participants. GM has made a huge return to the mid-size truck segment with the new Colorado, winner of the 2015 MotorTrend Truck of the Year.

Muzi Chevy is proud to remain an active member of the Needham Community and Needham Business Association. We believe that giving back to the community through charitable work and community involvement through organizations like the NBA makes Needham stronger. 

The Needham youth baseball league is a non-profit organization that is entirely volunteer based, so the sponsorship of local businesses is critical to the success of the league. Muzi Chevrolet has chosen to sponsor at the Platinum level this year. Its sponsorship will help the league procure uniforms, hats, balls, and assist with the costs of umpires and field maintenance.

We are looking forward to the 2015 Needham Little League Opening Day! Our dealership is sponsoring the Longhorns and the Pirates this year, but we want to wish all the Needham Youth League teams good luck. We hope you all have a great season!!
