Newly Combined New Britain Little League to Celebrate First Opening Day
New Britain, CT – Mayor Erin E. Stewart and the New Britain Little League recently announced that plans for the first Opening Day Ceremony since New Britain Little League and Fagan Baseball League combined earlier this year. Opening Day ceremonies will take place on Saturday April 24th at 10:00 a.m. at Veteran’s Stadium. The community is invited to join New Britain Little League for this event and in supporting the future of youth baseball and softball in New Britain.
“At long last, the New Britain Little League and the Fagan Baseball League have combined to become a powerhouse youth sports organization with the resources available to provide an even more positive experience for our young athletes,” said New Britain Mayor Erin Stewart. “This Opening Day signifies the first of many great seasons ahead from an organization that will get better and better each year.”
New Britain’s two baseball leagues officially merging earlier this year was the positive outcome of discussions had between League representatives, Mayor Stewart, and community leaders. New Britain Little League is now a unified force under one umbrella for the first time in New Britain's youth baseball history.
“The New Britain Little League would not be possible without the support from the City, our volunteers, board members, umpires, coaches, and families,” said New Britain Little League President Antonio Velazquez. “Without their efforts, patience, passion and support, we never would have been able to accomplish such an important milestone in youth baseball. New Britain Little League is a family and none of this will be possible without them.”
New Britain Little League was founded in 1957. The league provides both girls and boys ages 4-16 years old who live in the City of New Britain the opportunity to play baseball and softball.
