For a number of years now Penn College feeds all Little League teams before the Annual Grand Slam Parade. This year, Little League brought in Ozzie Smith who played in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the San Diego Padres and St. Louis Cardinals from 1978 to 1996. So this afternoon, the teams were bussed into the Penn College Campus for hot dogs, hamburgers, macaroni salad and desserts.

We were there watching the players mixing with other teams, signing their name to the Penn College "Rock" and playing games before leaving for the parade loading area.

Also, all of the teams wanted a team photo with Ozzie Smith and we were able to capture those team photos for our documentary.
