 ♦ East Meadow Little League is back on the road again and has gone GREEN

 

Thanks to Justin and Steve of East Meadow's High Grade Auto Body, Scott Abrecht of East Meadow's Hi-Tech Signs, and Dan Ratkewitch's East Meadow's All State Insurance.


For many years, we had used our electric golf cart to assist the elderly and disabled to get from our parking lot to our fields to watch their grandchildren and children play ball. The cart had seen better days and was no longer operable for the last couple of years. 

Thanks to High Grade Auto Body's excellent craftsmanship and generosity in donating their creativity, time, materials, and labor to restore the entire body and windshield, our old electric cart now has the "just out of the showroom" look. We are now once again able to transport those that need assistance in getting to the fields. High Grade’s amazing baseball-theme seat cushions add a special touch to the renovation for any baseball and softball fan.

Hi-Tech Signs was also generous enough to donate its creative skills in doing outstanding, graphic-designed, decorative sign work for the cart. In addition, Dan Ratkewitch's All State Insurance Agency's generous donation enabled us to replace the six, expensive, specialized batteries.

East Meadow Little League and Baseball/Softball Association gives special thanks to these generous local sponsors and to all of our sponsors. Their generosity enables our ALL VOLUNTEER organization to keep our expenses low so the children of East Meadow can play ball at the lowest cost possible. PLEASE SUPPORT ALL OF OUR EAST MEADOW SPONSORS!!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

♦ Big thanks to our local Boy Scout!! 

When our Fall season begins, you will notice a fresh look to our dugouts. One of our Senior League players who is also a Boy Scout organized a painting party on the Complex. Alex Schwartz of Troop 362, while working on his Life Project, requested to paint our dugouts.  So this past Sunday, Alex, along with his family, friends, teammates and fellow Scouts, painted the dugouts. While at times it appeared that some of our volunteers had more blue paint on them than the dugouts, Alex had a game plan and his crew came through with "flying colors". They did a great job!

Thanks again to our paint crew listed below and a special thanks to Alex Schwartz for making it happen after so many rain outs!!
