Over the past 27 seasons,
children have learned the importance of teamwork,
sportsmanship and character through baseball on Harlem Little League's fields of dreams, but the three fields where our
youngest children play are in need of major restoration.
Jackie Robinson Park's fields are home to our
Tee Ball and Rookie programs. Players 5- to 8-years-old take the field here, often for the first time. This small pair of diamonds needs new drainage, leveling and resurfacing. A midweek rainstorm can flood those fields
making them unplayable on the weekend.
The League is strong with 250
volunteers working with 400 children each season to achieve its goals. But our field conditions can hinder our
growth. While we have enjoyed a great
relationship with the NYC Parks Department, we cannot rely on the government alone
to upgrade our fields now.
Contractors estimate the cost of restoration at the three fields to be $75,000. We have received a generous grant from Little League Baseball,
Incorporated, but we need far more help to make this project a reality. We graciously ask for your tax-deductible donation to help
Harlem Little League continue Building Big League Citizens. Please give now.
