Shelter Island Little League set for the season: 60 kids signed up

Along with flowers in bud and the promise of warmer weather, Shelter Island Little League Baseball is back.

Over 60 local children have signed up for this year’s Little League season.

Little ones, ages 4-6 play in two T-ball teams sponsored by Elli’s store and RLW4 Builders. The next age group, 6-8, are two Coach Pitch teams sponsored by Katta Protective Service and Our Lady of the Isle. 

Peconic Plant Care is the sponsor of the Boys Minors Team, and Bartilucci Construction is sponsoring the Girls Minors Softball team.

Stay tuned to the schedule each week in the Reporter and come down to Fiske Field (upper field for the girls) to cheer on the Island’s young sluggers as they take the field for a season of fun for all.
