The Union Little League will open their season this April, which runs through October 2016. The teams play in various competitions, including the Ripkin tournaments, as well as internationally, in locations such as Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Panama, Venezuela, Mexico and Canada.
The League is based in the Bronx, and aims to provide an outlet for at-risk youth struggling with poverty and other hardships.
In addition to exposing the kids to different parts of the world and other cultures, the League provides them with a healthy context for socialization, while instilling a sense of structure and discipline into their daily lives.
Peter Castellana III, Peter Castellana Jr. and the Castellana Foundation are proud to help support the efforts of the Union Little League, as it continues to positively impact their community.
