About Harlem Little League…

Harlem Little League is an officially chartered little league of Little League Baseball, Incorporated. We offer baseball and softball to boys and girls ages 5-16 and for children with disabilities. If volunteer staff is available, we offer Summer Ball and Fall Ball. As a chartered member of Little League Baseball, Incorporated a worldwide corporation, we follow Little League Baseball Incorporated’s rules and regulations. Harlem Little League’s goal is to develop big league citizens not big league ball players. We emphasize children having fun while playing competitive baseball. Parents are urged to cheer for ALL players, not just their child. Harlem Little League wants ALL of our children to be winners and to enjoy their Little League experience! So forget the “big win” and concentrate on having fun!
