Little League is a program of service to youth geared to provide healthful activity and training under good leadership in an atmosphere of wholesome community participation; it is dedicated to helping children become good and decent citizens. It strives to inspire them to set goals and to enrich their lives towards the day when they must take their places in the world by establishing the values of teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play. It also encourages players to challenge their physical skills, while having fun, and to gain a knowledge and appreciation for the game of baseball.
Hudson Little League President Mike Pizza comments, “With the 2018 season upon us, we hope to raise $20,000, with approximately $10,000 of those funds being directed to the purchase of a new Zero Turn mower and push mower for field maintenance. The remainder of the funds raised will be used to pay bills for such as the electric bill …our field is the only field in Columbia County with field lights… umpires, baseballs ($70 per dozen) and bats plus the ability to stock our concession stand. Our 11 volunteer board members are extremely active within the league and often use out of pocket money to help meet expenses. The Hudson Little League is completely not for profit so we rely solely on public support to maintain our program.” Hudson Little League aligns itself fully with the rules, regulations and policies of Little League Baseball.
