The Jackie Robinson Little League is an organization that is rich in the tradition of baseball. We provide little league baseball recreation to over 150 children in Jersey City. We combine the essence of baseball’s history with current reflections of the game. This combination is reflected in the mix of our team names. For example, the Homestead Grays remind us of the groundbreaking contributions that players like Josh Gibson have made to the game of baseball while the Cardinals represent the present look of Major League Baseball.
Jackie Robinson paved the way for diversity in baseball. The Jackie Robinson Little League follows in his footsteps. One of our goals is to introduce baseball to its future stars while teaching them the importance of strong character values such as pride, teamwork, fairness, and leadership.
Through our program, our youth will be able to experience the (richness) and (excitement) of America’s greatest pastime. They will learn sportsmanship and other important values while increasing their skill. Their involvement affords them an opportunity to build their self-esteem while exposing them to a positive, fun environment. This is especially important today in an age where our youth are often confronted with many of the negative aspects of society
