If you don’t already know this, the New York State Little League baseball championship tournament for 10-12 year olds is underway this week at the Penfield Little League Complex at the town hall. This is an exciting event for Penfield Little League to host and great fun to watch. The fields are in top condition and the volunteers at Rose’s café are busy serving hungry fans, families, and players. With this event comes many visitors to Penfield. If you see teams and their families out and about at hotels, restaurants, stores—or just about anywhere—please say hello and welcome them to Penfield.
Today (Thursday) the teams have a break from playing and are out in the community attending camps and doing other activities. However, players will be back at the complex to compete in a home run derby today at 3:30 PM. Games resume Friday and continue through the championship game on Sunday. I encourage you to come out to the ball park to enjoy the atmosphere and take in a game or two.
If you can’t get there in person, you can watch the games live from behind home plate on Zabkar field courtesy of Penfield Community TV. Here’s how:
