Elks Win Championship!!6/14/2014UPDATED: 6/17/2014
The Major Playoffs began Tuesday night (after a special opening ceremony featuring Bill Parcells) with #2 VFW hosting #3 Lions. It was an exciting game from the first pitch to the last out - and when it was over, the Lions had pulled out the win defeating VFW by a score of 6-4 and advanced to face the #1 seeded Elks in the Championship Series.
The Championship Series opened on Thursday night with Elks hosting Lions. The Elks brought their bats to the game that night, and beat the Lions 12-2 to take a 1-0 lead in the Best-Of-Three series.
The series continued today with Lions hosting the Elks and though the Lions played as hard as they could, in the end the Elks were simply too tough and they won 15-3 to take the Championship crown.
Congratulations, Elks!!! And congratulations to ALL the boys from all of the teams as they played excellent baseball all year long and ended the season in spectacular fashion!!
Bill Parcells Comes to HHLL!6/11/2014
What an AMAZING night it was, having NFL Hall of Famer Bill Parcells return to the town he once played Little League in. After a brief ceremony to kick-off our Major Division playoffs, Mr. Parcells hung around and watched a few innings of baseball with us and spent a great deal of time talking about some of the history of our league back when he played in 1953.
It was a memory I hope all of us remember and keep forever - a reminder that even a small town like Hasbrouck Heights can one day produce a sports legend...
