Celebrates Little League Season Opener April 8, 2002 -- Councilwoman Melinda Katz celebrated the start of the Little League season by throwing out the first pitch at this yearâ€™s Forest Hills Little League opening game on Saturday, April 6. â€œAll too often headlines are filled with stories of tragedy and despair.â€� Said Councilwoman Katz. â€œEvents like these that take place every weekend remind us that there is something to celebrate: communities that work and play together.â€� Councilwoman Katzâ€™s team, Katzâ€™s Kids, faced off against the team sponsored by CFS Bank. Katzâ€™s Kids is starting its first year as a member of the T-Ball division of the Forest Hills Little League and is made up of five and six year olds from Forest Hills, Rego Park, Kew Gardens, Corona, Elmhurst and Woodhaven areas. â€œForest Hills Little League has been a star player in our community for over 40 years.â€� said Katz. â€œThe start of the season means the start of a safe, fun and responsible springtime for the children in our neighborhood.â€� Before throwing out the first pitch, Katz shared her musical talents by singing the National Anthem. â€œAll of Queensâ€™ kids are my kids.â€� said Katz. â€œHereâ€™s to a super Little League season.â€�
