Batter Up!

The Philipstown Little League opened its season on a chilly but sunny Saturday (April 14) with five games, including the return of softball.

The league has 15 teams, with players in kindergarten through seventh grade, in three divisions. Each team plays at least 12 games. Girls in grades 2 to 6 can play softball or baseball.

“Opening day is a beautiful day to celebrate community,” said Paul Tomizawa, the league president. “We have lots of volunteers chipping in, making sure the season goes well.”

Registration for softball is still open; see philipstownlittleleague.com.
