The all-American celebration featured stilt walkers who handed out Cracker Jacks and popcorn along with a barbershop quartet that serenaded the crowd with “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.” Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer threw the first pitch with District 1 City Commissioner Jim Gray and representatives from the McCoy family. The celebration continued with a scrimmage and registration for the South Orlando Babe Ruth Baseball spring season.
