HYBSA Picture Day, Parade and Equipment Swap

Posted by Jon Taylor on Apr 30 2024 at 07:34AM PDT

The parade is always a great day for K through 6 players as we celebrate the arrival of spring and kids being outdoors doing what they love. Special thanks to Holliston Police and Fire who support this event every year and lead us along the route. Below is a breakdown of the day that includes team photos throughout the morning.

9:30-12:30 – Team and Individual Photos at Placentino (rain or shine – outdoors if the weather cooperates / indoors otherwise).
All players should arrive 15 minutes prior to their scheduled time in uniform. Families are encouraged to place your orders prior to Sunday. Please visit, then click Documents-Picture Day to find the online order forms. However, photo order forms will also be available on Sunday. Players are not required to make a purchase but we are asking that all players and coaches attend the photo shoot so that those who order a team picture will have everyone in it. Check your email and for your team’s timeslot.

In addition to picture day, HYBSA will be offering a baseball & softball equipment swap this year! All gear needs to be in usable condition and free of defects. We will accept bats, cleats (please tie them together), helmets, gloves, catching gear, baseball bags, and clean usable pants. No t-shirts, hats, or balls. Donations can be dropped off at Patoma Thursday, May 2nd from 5-7:30pm or Sunday, May 5th between 9 -9:30am. Then starting at 9:30am, please stop by the table any time and take any piece(s) of gear you may need for the season. Cash donations will be accepted with all proceeds going to the Timothy O’Connell Foundation. The table will be set up right near the picture area.
