Free Citywide Youth Baseball League Enrollment
Health Plus, the Police Athletic League and the City of New York’s Parks & Recreation Department have teamed up to present the 2003 Health Plus Citywide Youth Baseball League, a free program for boys and girls ages 5 to 12 and boys only ages 13-15.
Over 1,400 young athletes will participate on 95 teams in 10 parks throughout the city. The free program runs from June 21 through the end of August. Registration for the league will be held on April 26, May 3, May 10 and May 17 from 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. The season starts on June 28, 2003.
The opening game will mark the beginning of a competitive season that will conclude with the championship game in which Roberto Clemente Jr. will present the winning team with the Roberto Clemente Cup.
"Once again Health Plus has partnered with PAL and the Dept. of Recreation to use baseball to foster personal development, athletics, and health in our communities," says Health Plus League Organizer Luis Ramos. "We are pleased to be able to offer our city’s children a free opportunity to be part of a team and to play in a top-notch league in beautiful parks instead of on the streets."
Registration will be held at Sorrentino Recreation Center Hall at 18-48 Cornaga Avenue in Far Rockaway. The phone number is 718-471-4818 and the contact is Bernard Robinson.
