ELMHURST LITTLE LEAGUE TURNS 60

Details
Text Size:

Can you believe it has been 60 years since the first Elmhurst Little Leaguer stepped foot on the one and only diamond that used to be located on Hayden Road, which is now Ardmore Avenue, next to Elmhurst High School. Elmhurst Little League has now expanded to 4 diamonds, a concession stand and large parking lot located on Mason Drive.

As a former player and current coach I have spent 20 plus years at the Elmhurst diamonds during the summer. I have really enjoyed my time at Elmhurst and wouldn't want to be anywhere else. Teams, players, and coaches have their ups and downs but at the end of the day it's all about having fun and playing America's past time.

We are looking forward to this monumental 60-year anniversary and we want the great community of Waynedale to help us in our celebration. Opening day is Saturday, April 26, games begin at 9:30am. We plan on having a fun-filled day of raffles, lunch specials and a few baseball games. We would like for any alumni, their families, the Waynedale community and businesses to come join in our celebration. With this milestone celebration we are in need of donations for our raffle. Items like gift cards, handmade crafts, services, etc. If you know of someone that would like to donate their time to do some face painting, balloon animals, or anything creative, or have any ideas please let us know.
