The parade, led by the Mira Costa High School marching band and city officials, featured players and coaches holding banners for their respective teams. Both boys' and girls' teams were represented in the parade with players starting as young as four years old.
The parade concluded with an opening day ceremony at American Martyrs School. Former Major League Baseball player Nomar Garciaparra was on hand, along with U.S. Representative Ted Lieu, American Martyrs Monsignor John Barry, and city leaders.
"If we attribute the word 'happy' to Disneyland, they should come and see 'happy' here today," said Barry. "This is a happy, happy experience for everyone in our community, and we are so grateful to all of the families and all of the organizers."
