OPENING DAY RECAP

We were blessed with lots of sunshine for Pocomoke Little League's 2017 Opening Day! Little windy, but no snowflakes like last year!! It was a great moment for players and parents as our kids paraded onto the field.

This event is a special day for our Little Leaguers and we'd like to thank everyone who helped make it a great day:

  • Mike Shannon for once again being our Master of Ceremonies
  • PHS ROTC for providing our Color Guard
  • PES Choir for their beautiful singing of our National Anthem
  • PES Teacher of the Year, and leader of the PES Choir, Mrs. Jennifer Howard for throwing out the ceremonial first pitch
  • Grill-Master Theo Moses
  • Lakeisha Beckett, Beverly Cowger-Glogovics, Sarah Guy, Sherry Hooks, Laurie Kamps, Brenda Rayfield, and others who worked our concession stand.

Special thanks also to the countless other volunteers, parents and coaches who make this all possible.

Concession stand schedules will be announced soon. Please make every effort for your team to work as scheduled. Income from our concession stand is important to our league.

WANT TO SPONSOR POCOMOKE LITTLE LEAGUE?

We can't do what we do without the loyal and generous support from our sponsors. You can also now take care of your sponsorship through our online sponsor registration system or by contacting Melissa Webster at dicouponqueen@gmail.com .

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!

 

HELLO 2017!!!

Hope everyone had a great holiday and New Year's Day!! With the turn of the calendar the start of baseball is right around the corner!!

MEETING: There will be a meeting and election of new officers on January 29, 2017, at 5pm at the Pocomoke Fire House Meeting Room.

We made great strides last year with improvements to the concession stand, the addition of scoreboards to fields previously without one (through grants), purchased new equipment (through grants), created our beautiful entrance/flag court and worked with the county to allow us to transition a softball field (as available) to allow games to be held with lights. We also added a security system due to a generous donation.

On the field, we had a good number of teams for our area and are always hoping to attract more kids to PLL. A special highlight was our Minors Softball team went UNDEFEATED during regular season play. We concluded the 2016 season with a great End-of-Season party. Check out the pics if you haven't already done so.

Off the field, we tried hard to engage our town through Community Week at the Park and Movies in the Park. The movie was well-attended and everyone seemed to enjoy it. We were very sorry when our Halloween movie was cancelled due to inclement weather.
