Concord American Baseball
Opening Day 2002 Activities

Captain 'Coach' Alan Gwiazdon and Lt. 'Coach' Mike Galindo
Raising the Flag to Begin the 2002 Concord American Season

The 2002 Concord American Season was officially dedicated to all of our local heros, and to the memory of those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.  It was only fitting that our opening day should include members of our local police and fire departments.  Not only do these individuals serve and protect us every day, but we are also proud to call them 'Coach'.

Once again the Concord American Board put together a first class Opening Day. On behalf of all of the families, players, coaches, and friends of Concord American, I would like to thank League President Craig Gietzen, his great planning committee, and the dozens and dozens of volunteers for devoting so much time and love to make this a wonderful day.
