These games are always so cute to watch. The kids are all adorable. It was such a pleasure to see the  children being able to run the bases without being told.

Upcoming Games

Things for coaches,parents and spectators to keep in mind while children are playing sports on our fields.........

  • This is a game being played by children.
  • If they win or lose every game of the season, it will not impact what college they attend or their future income potential.
  • Of the hundreds of children who have every played youth sports in Lehman Twsp,very few have gone on to play professionally. It is highly unlikely that any college recruiters or professional scouts are watching these games;so,let's keep it all about having fun and pressure free.
