Some of the Bay Area's big leaguers will salute the Petaluma little leaguers on Friday. On Wednesday the Oakland Athletics revealed that they will honor the Petaluma squad before Friday evening's game against the Boston Red Sox.

Petaluma finished third in the Little League World Series last weekend. The team will be honored with a parade through downtown Petaluma on Sunday at 1 pm.

The parade will follow the route of the annual Butter & Egg Days parade -- starting at Fourth and D streets, and continuing along Fourth and Kentucky streets to Washingon Street, then right to Petaluma Boulevard and right down the Boulevard to D Street.

The parade will conclude at Walnut Park at Petaluma Boulevard South and D Street for a celebration party, including speeches, photo opportunities and more.
