After an exciting Major League Baseball playoffs (congrats Houston Astros!) and a fun Fall season for our own little big leaguers, I’d like to thank all of our players, parents, coaches, and volunteers for a fantastic year in the Philipstown Little League. Special thanks to our Little League Board members who always put our players first — Luz Bailey, Bo Bell, Katie Cucchiarella, Lee Erickson, Dave McCarthy (outgoing President), Mike Meeropol, Craig Skiptunis, Kristin Van Tassel, and Tom Virgadamo.
With each game, our ballplayers got better, wiser, and more confident at the plate and in the field. In Little League we’re all about playing small ball, growing our game little by little. And we’ll continue doing it straight through winter! Check the Rec Sports winter catalog for info on our Thursday night clinics from January-March as well as Sunday afternoon clinics with our outstanding youth baseball Coach John Blair. I highly recommend both sessions. I also recommend for the Thursday night sessions, even though the catalog indicates that pre-registration is not necessary. We can better tailor our instruction, when we know who’s coming on Thursday nights.
I look forward to seeing our young players return in the spring. Have them bring along siblings or friends who haven’t played the game before or want to give baseball or softball (yes!) a shot. Spring registration info is coming soon. Register by January for early bird fees!
Thanks for your support,
President, Philipstown Little League
