Week 12 Update: Closing Day is Here, Tournament Play, Many Thanks

TODAY IS CLOSING DAY Thank you to all our volunteers, parents and friends of Harlem Little League. Our league is only as strong as its volunteers. It’s been a great season and we hope you’ll carry fond memories into the summer and beyond.

The Closing Day schedule is posted online. Managers will communicate any changes to the schedule, so if you don’t hear from your manager, we’ll see you at Rucker Park (155th between FDB and the Harlem River Drive) at your scheduled time.

Remember, bring something to share at a community-style picnic. We hope this will be a fitting end to another great season.
