Rockaway Little League
Saturday brought Little League some fog to battle with. Consequently some of the games were called off. However, some play’s been squeezed in and overall play has been excellent. Little League would like to thank everyone for their generosity in volunteering their time. Without these volunteers, Little League would not be possible.
We have a strong need for volunteer umpires. If you are available please contact Marty Andresen or Jim Roberts.
