Signs of Spring

Welcome to a new season with the Philipstown Little League!

The snow has mostly melted from our lawns and ballfields. And we're starting to see signs of an emerging Spring. Behind the scenes at the Philipstown Little League we are moving at a frenetic pace to get ready for the Spring season. Registration is now officially closed. We are working on assigning players and coaches to their teams, ordering uniforms and equipment, and ironing out details for prepping our playing fields. We will need plenty of volunteers for field prep work in late March, so stay tuned for an upcoming email. One of the fields we will be rehabbing is Perkins Field, which for many parents in town, is their childhood Little League field. We are looking forward to getting it back into playing shape for our youngest Little Leaguers this year.

By the end of March, parents will be contacted by their children's coaches. The coaches will detail the team experience, including practice and game schedule. At the Junior Minors level, players can expect two hour-long baseball/softball events each week. One weekday practice and one Saturday game. We could use coaching help at the Junior Minors level, if you are able to volunteer. Email us at [email protected] if you'd like to learn more about coaching opportunities.

For baseball and softball at the Coach Pitch, Instructional, and Player Pitch Minor league levels, and the Major league level, players can expect up to three baseball events each week, which would be a combination of games and practices. Each session would run about 1.5 to 2 hours. Your team coach will lay out scheduling details.

Our Opening Day event is scheduled to take place on Saturday April 10, depending on weather and field conditions. We're crossing our fingers that we don't get hit with one more winter blast. We might, however, host a separate celebration to mark the reopening of Perkins Field. If you have any questions for us, please email us at [email protected]

Many thanks again for supporting your Philipstown Little League.
