On Sunday, August 21, Erie County Legislator Kevin Hardwick presented the Tonawanda American Little League 11U all-star team and coaches with certificates recognizing the team’s successful championship run. The Tonawanda American Little League is one of the smallest leagues in the district, making the Section championships an even greater accomplishment.

 “As a baseball fan, former little league coach and a public servant, I am deeply appreciative of the benefits that Little League baseball provides to children and families in our community,” said Legislator Hardwick. “These boys are models of determination and good sportsmanship and I congratulate them for their hard work and success.”

The Tonawanda American Little League 11U all-star team defeated Mel Ott for the District I Championship and advanced to compete for the Section I Championship in Batavia. The boys defeated Batavia 12-2 before losing to Stoney Point 9-1 in the New York State Championship game.

Tonawanda American Little League was established in 1958 as an affiliate of Little League Baseball and is a member of District #1 in New York State.  Participation in the league is open to all boys and girls ages 5-18 that reside in the Town of Tonawanda, City of Tonawanda, or Village of Kenmore.
