Opening Day Ceremony and Equipment Swap

Father Carroll Field, West Market St, Red Hook

Families are encouraged to attend our annual Opening Day Ceremony at Father Carroll Field, West Market Street in Red Hook. We also encourage you to bring used cleats, bats, gloves, helmets and catchers equipment that is in good condition. Families may find items they need, and freely give items that they no longer need. 

Last Week of April Games begin

For most divisions, the first games will take place in the week following Opening Day. Parents will learn about practice and game schedules from coaches, once teams have been assigned and game schedules have been drafted. For many divisions, games cannot be scheduled until the district schedules games against other towns, so please be patient.
