Freeport Little League NY: Welcome
Congratulations to the 2017 Majors Division Champions
As this very wet spring season draws to an end, I know many of you are thinking about summer baseball. The good news is that league will continue playing thru the summer at little or no cost to you. The most important ingredients are you and your child. For kids playing in the T-Ball and Rookie divisions a few years ago we ran a program which we called “A Clinic and A Game”. The idea is that on Saturday mornings we have a 45 minute clinic followed by a “pick up” game with all the kids that attend the clinic.
Rockville Centre has a summer program for kids 8 thru 12 years old. They will organize a league which will play only during the week, one game at home and the other away. Players will play in the division they will be playing in next spring. Teams will consist of 8 & 9 year old’s playing together and 10 & 11 year old’s playing together. Of course, if a manager has a full roster and wants to keep the team together, that manager can register that team to play.
Our responsibility is to supply baseballs and an umpire for each home game. The cost will be $50 which will cover the cost of the balls, umpire and a T-shirt. If you’re interested let your manager or division rep. know, or just contact the league.
In 2017 Freeport Little League will be celebrating its 65th Birthday. We are inviting anyone who played little league baseball or softball in Freeport to share their story with us. If you have pictures we would also like to also post them on our website and facebook page. After 65 years Freeport Little league is an institution. The values of teamwork, discipline, respect and dedication which were taught in 1952 by the league are justas important today.The game of baseball is still a team sport and although today’s kids are bigger, faster and stronger the game is the same and kids are still kids. They still look to adults for leadership and guidance and every year we have exceptional volunteers who step up to the plate. Today Little league faces a challenge to its continual relevance because of the growth of travel baseball programs. While travel baseball is a good experience for manynothing beats the sheer joy of playing the game for fun and maybe learning something while you’re at it.
