SADDLE BROOK, N.J.– Former New York Yankee Roy White came to Saddle Brook to celebrate the township's Little League opening day.
White played 15 seasons in the Bronx and won two World Series championships during his tenure.
Saddle Brook Little League , in its 64th season, started the day off with a parade and ceremony.
"What a great day it was," resident JoAnn Brendel said. "He's an awesome man, Roy White."
The Little League teams, comprised of children ages 4-12, play on either Nedellec Field (Saddle River Road) or Victor Field (Victor Street and Kern Place).
