Hi, I'm Jim Oyer and once again I am happy to be the President of Hornell Little League. I welcome everyone to the 2018 season. The Board of Directors and I are very enthusiastic about this upcoming season. We are very happy to introduce girls’ softball back to the Hornell area after many years of playing in Canisteo. This is awesome for the young girls who play T-ball with us in Little League to move into girls’ softball… all under the same league. The girls’ softball league will continue to play local leagues but also other chartered leagues in our district.
Hornell Little League will continue in 2018 with online registration, starting January 1, 2018, and ending February 15, 2018. Please click on the banner above to register.
As you can see, the Hornell Little League Board has been very busy working on this year’s season and what an exciting season it will be. We have once again combined forces with The Hornell YMCA so that we can offer 6 weeks of Baseball Winter Camp starting in March. This camp will be broken up into two categories (Majors and Minors). Space is very limited so sign up soon!!! Please contact the Hornell YMCA for details.
In closing, this will be my final year as President of Hornell Little League. As my son ages out, I will be moving on. I have enjoyed my time here at the Hornell Little League complex; I have enjoyed making new friends, and I hope that I have made a great organization just a little bit better. I have enjoyed my years here and look forward to working with the new board/President for an easy changeover. Please remember this organization runs solely on volunteers. To continue to make this organization strong and a growing asset to the future players in the Hornell community, parents need to step up and volunteer to work the concession stand, announce the games, become a board member and work on the fields. These things do not get completed on their own, they need your help and input. The future of this organization lies in the hands of the parents of today... please VOLUNTEER TODAY!!
Thank you to a GREAT Board of Directors for making my job just a little easier!! I wish everyone an exciting 2018 baseball season.
“Let’s Play Ball!”
HLL Board President
