About Harlem Little League…

Harlem Little League is an officially chartered little league of Little League Baseball, Incorporated. We offer baseball to boys and girls ages 5-12. 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.

So forget the “big win” and concentrate on having fun!
