NEW LL RULE: Boundary Rule Provides Options (click here to see the Rule)
For 75 years, the Little League community has been based on the boundaries of the local league. We are excited because for the first time in Little League’s existence, there are now two options for where your children can play Little League.
- As always, they can play for the league where your home is located.
- Or, this year (2014), a new rule allows your children to play for the league where their school is located.
In a changing educational landscape, this new rule gives parents the option to register their children for the Little League that is truly most convenient to the family, and further enhance the role of community with the classmates of your Little Leaguers® and their families.
ALMOST TIME FOR BASEBALL !!
Ken Ulrich and Staff will be running a variety of clinics from one-on-one private lessons to small group instruction as well as team clinics at VISION SPORTS CLUB in Pearl River. The facility has five batting tunnels, pitching machines and pitching mounds.

MLB LOCAL SPOTLIGHT: THE KIVY FILE
Never thought a local ball player (other than Flaherty) “had a chance” huh ?!
After finishing up his Little League career as a 2006 New York State Champion playing for West Nyack Senior-League All-Stars (15/16 yr olds) Patrick played 4 years of football at Rutgers. Being bored after his 4-year football stint was over he tried-out for Rutgers D1 Baseball, and did well enough in the Big East Conference to grab some well-deserved recognition from MLB.
In 2012, Patrick was selected in the 4th Round of the MLB Baseball Draft by the Seattle Mariners. After starting his MLB career immediately on Short-Season Everett AquaSox he moved up to Low-A-League Clinton LumberKings. In 2013 he was promoted to play for High-A-League High Desert Mavericks.
Current Day: Patrick was selected by the Seattle Mariners organization, as a High-A Prospect, to continue his career in the MLB Future Prospects 2013 Arizona Fall Baseball League. He is currently rostered to play on Peoria Javalinas for MLB Fall Baseball, along with other A-/A+/AA/AAA Prospects from Astros, Mariners, Padres, Phillies and KC Royals.
GOOD LUCK GOING FORWARD, PATRICK . . . YOU HAVE A WHOLE LITTLE LEAGUE PULLING FOR YA !!!
