Wareham, MA- Prior to the start of their matchup with Cotuit on Sunday night, the Gatemen welcomed Lakeville Little League players and coaches to Spillane Field. The Gatemen met with the Lakeville players and their families, played catch on the field and signed autographs for the kids. The Little Leaguers also threw out the first pitch and made the “play ball” call after the singing of the national anthem. This was the second time the Gatemen have welcomed a youth team to the field this season, as they honored Middleboro Little League before their June 22nd matchup against Falmouth. There are several more Little League nights planned over the course of the season, which will bring in teams from Mattapoisett, Plymouth and the surrounding area.
