Haverhill Little League: News

Saturday, March 12
A letter from the President...
Due to lack of volunteer support and sub-standard enrollment numbers, Haverhill Little League (HLL) Baseball will cease operations for the 2011 season. At our current enrollment numbers and trend, we will be unable to field the number of teams needed in each division to play a full, balanced and competitive schedule.

We have communicated this with the Riverside Bradford (RB) Baseball League and will be sending all completed registration forms and any new ones received, to them. The RB program has served the community well over the years and provided kids with a safe and fun environment to play and learn baseball. A representative from RB will be contacting all families over the next couple weeks to inform them of next steps and provide any relevant league information. All HLL players may be required to attend one of RB’s evaluation sessions. For more information go to: www.rbbaseball.org.

If for any reason, anyone who initially registered with HLL does not want to participate in the RB program, we will refund the registration fee. Due to insurance requirements, all requests for refunds must be received by 3/31/11. Please send all requests for refunds to the email address or phone number below.

We take this action with regret and with the primary purpose of providing families with sufficient time to find another baseball program for their children to participate in for the 2011 season.

The HLL board would like to thank all those parents, volunteer coaches and board members who have helped over the years.

Please feel free to contact me or any other HLL board member if you have any questions.

Play Ball!!!


Sincerely,

Kevin Clancy

Backyard Ball

Backyard Ball is a book written about versions of Wiffle Ball. Versions of Wiffle Ball have been played in backyards, alley ways, vacant lots, street corners and even at high stakes tournaments across the country. The book reviews of many different rules, ways to play, how to perform as a player, hitting pitching and defense.

There is also the story of Little Ebbets Field, a one of a kind Wiffle Ball Field that hundreds of people have played on. Little Ebbets is 1/4 the size of the actual Ebbets Field. It is the only known replica of Ebbets Field. Little Ebbets is open to the public and anyone can play there. The book was written by Tom Hannon, the builder of Little Ebbets and 30 year baseball, softball and wiffle ball veteran.
