After two seasons, baseball is back on Baker Street in West Roxbury

Parkway Hippos parade

The rain held off today for the return of the Parkway Little League's opening tradition - the parade from Roslindale to the league's main field off Baker Street in West Roxbury.

The Parkway Hippos has gotta be one of the greatest team names I've ever seen and I don't even know why.

Much better than the little league team I was on... the Chelsea Angles. We didn't love math, and apparently English wasn't our territory either since we were supposed to be the Chelsea Angels lol
