The community is hosting a homecoming parade for the Nolensville Little League Team on Wednesday, August 30th at 6 pm.

The team returns home after finishing fourth in the Little League Baseball World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

This will be a golf cart parade starting at the historic school greenway (7248 Nolensville Rd), traveling along the greenway past Lanny Field, Gregory Park and then into the main Nolensville Park (2310 Nolensville Park Rd) around the baseball fields.

They ask that you line up along the greenway and support each player as they pass by. At the end, there will be autographs and pictures at the main park.

The team is looking for volunteers for the parade as well. If anyone is willing to volunteer by driving their 4-door plus golf cart, please contact Nolensvillebaseballcoaches@gmail.com.

In addition to being the runner-up for the U.S. Championship game, the fourth in the World at the Little League World Series, the team was awarded the Jack Losch Team Sportsmanship Award, voted on by the 20 participating teams, as well as the team hosts, volunteers, members of the media, and the Little League staff. The Jack Losch Little League Baseball World Series Team Sportsmanship Award recognizes the team that exemplifies a tremendous amount of sportsmanship both on and off the field, including the team’s time in the dormitories, dining hall, and interview room as well as their performance on the field.
