RITE OF SPRING...Several hundreds marched as the Westfield Baseball League (WBL) kicked off the season with its annual parade last Saturday. Baseball players, parents, siblings, pets and coaches marched from Mindowaskin Park to South Chestnut Street, where a carnival awaited them at Gumbert Park. They were accompanied by Mayor Andy Skibitsky, WBL officials and mascots who cruised down the parade route in convertibles decorated for the occasion.
