A Special Thank You !!
Despite the torrential thunderstorms that took place Friday night and into the morning hours of Saturday April 20th, rain ultimately gave way to sunshine and upwards of 1200+ people, players, parents, grandparents, and other family showed up to Cantine Memorial Complex to help the Saugerties Little League kick off the 2013 Baseball Season. Fans lined Pavilion Drive to cheer on the players and thank our special guest community leaders that agreed to spend time with us that day!I would like to extend a special thanks to the following people that helped the Saugerties Little League Board make this happen!!
