Roosevelt Island Center Of Community Development & Beacon Program Free Little League Baseball Season Begins April 15 - Still Time To Register And Play Ball, Volunteer Coaches Needed Too

Roosevelt Island Hope Church Pastor Dan Sadlier reports the Roosevelt Island Center of Community Development (RICCD) Little League baseball season begins it's third season on April 15.

This spring, the Roosevelt Island Center of Community Development will host our third year of island wide little league.

In partnership with Beacon, the league will include 3 different age groups; minors (5-6), majors (7-9yrs old) and seniors (10-13yrs old), with the intent of expanding to other age groups in the coming years.

Children and their parents can expect a well-planned, 10 game season. The RICCD little league will include an opening day parade, a pre-season parent's gathering, an all-star game, and the league will finish strong with a playoff and little league championship game. Little League opening day and parade are on April 15th.

In addition, the league has focused on recruiting high character parents, young professionals, and others leaders from the community who are ready to invest much of their spring into launching this new neighborhood little-league. Register online at
So far, over 160 kids have signed up to play. There is room for about 10 more players and 2-3 more volunteer coaches too.
