Town of Newburgh Little League History

The Town of Newburgh Little League was formed on June 26, 1968 but the first games were not played until May of 1969. That first year there were 164 kids playing on 4 Major League and 6 Minor League teams. In 1970, a Senior League was formed and then in 1976 the softball program was added.

For the first years, the league played on borrowed fields. Then in 1972, the league purchased 32 acres of land on Lakeside Road. Click here for Map. It took about 2 years to clear and level the land. All of the work was done by volunteers. On June 2, 1974 the complex was dedicated. It consisted of 4 fields and one concession stand. Three games were played that day and the fields have seen many, many games since that first day.

In the 1980's, our complex was host of the Eastern Regional Tournament games for the Major division of Little League. This is the age 11 - 12 group. The winner of these games went to the Little League World Series that are held in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

The complex also grew in size by adding three more fields and another building. There were two fields with 60' base paths and one field with 90' base paths.

The complex added an eighth field in 2002 for our TBall players. This field is smaller than all of our others and helps our youngest ball players learn the game of baseball and softball on a field suited to them.

The league - board members, volunteers, players - and the complex - fields, buildings - has undergone many changes since that first day but the one thing that has and will stay constant is that this is a program for the children of the Town of Newburgh Little League. They are the only reason why this program exists.

Volunteers

Volunteer To Help

We are an all volunteer organization and more help is always needed. If you would like to join or help out, see one of the board members and ask for details. 

Volunteering to help doesn't mean you're giving up your life. There are many small and/or one-time jobs that need done both during the season and during the off-season. Give what time you can and that means one less job that needs to be done by others. Contact any Board member or your team's coaches to sign-up.

What help is needed:

  • Concession Stand workers during the season
  • Field Work
  • Managers
  • Coaches
  • Umpires
  • Board Members
  • Plumbers
  • Electricians
  • Sponsors

The TONLL is an organization of volunteers. There are NO paid positions, except for umpires, and even then its just a token. Each person involved gives of their time and effort to make a positive experience for all the players of the league. The Board members spend great amounts of time year-round to administer and organize the league.
Coaching staffs also spend a huge amount of time in both the pre-season and season for practices and games. They are giving of their experience and time, please respect that sacrifice.
The umpires are not professionals, nor are they perfect. They're usually just kids or dads who love and respect the great game of baseball so much that they Ump just to be on the field. If we abuse them, they will eventually just go away

Sportmanship
