The North End Athletic Association (NEAA) would like to say a huge thank you to all those businesses and individuals who contributed to a successful and enjoyable 2018 Opening Day Celebration. Over 400 players, family members, friends, and supporters attended throughout the day to celebrate spring and the beginning of another exciting year of baseball in the North End.
