Baseball season is back, and Lindenhurst American Little League is ready to hit the ground running!

As the current Director of the Peewee Director for the Lindenhurst American Little League, I’d like to say… PLAY BALL!

The weather is warming in NY and the Lindenhurst American Little League (LALL) is getting ready for the Spring ’22 season. A town that embraces athletics and the benefits they provide children, LALL includes a Board of Directors that creates an exciting experience for the kids and community. Pre-season practices begin in March to warm up the players, followed by a parade in April to officially open the season with all-day festivities; team pictures and baseball games to round off the day’s events. Local vendors set up booths throughout the park handing out fun goodies too!

Benefits of signing up with Lindenhurst American Little League

Beginning with the 3-year-old program, many of the current players have now played together for multiple seasons while creating personal bonds off the field. As the players age up in the league, there is a trust that is developed and a desire to play as part of a team, play for each other. It’s ok to want to win and be competitive, but it’s also ok to lose, yet know how to lose with grace.

Together, the players learn

  • Comradery
  • Patience
  • Selflessness
  • Sense of community
  • Work ethic
  • Sportsmanship

Thanks to the league’s success, players go on to play at the High School and travel league level, some earning college scholarships.
