Gastineau Channel Little League set for opening day

League kicks off 53rd season Saturday

Posted: Friday, April 29, 2005

The Gastineau Channel Little LEague opens up its 53rd season Saturday at 10 a.m. at Adair-Kennedy Ball Park.

There are 754 children ages 5-to-16 participating this year, constituting 57 different teams.

This season will be dedicated to the memory of Stan Miller. Stan and his wife Joanne moved to Juneau in 1964 and were both heavily involved in Little League. Stan coached, served on the local board and as district administrator.

Joann served as a volunteer and board member.

The couple helped lead the drive to build fields at Glacier Valley School, which were named for them in 1995.

Stan Miller's granddaughter, Heather Karpstein, will throw the first fast pitch and will be caught by Nick Andrews. The first pitch for softball will be thrown by Brittany Fenumiai and caught by Lii Levale.

Jennifer Nelson and Annie Hegar will sing the national anthem.
