Webutuck Little League plans 2023 season
MILLERTON — The Webutuck Little League met on Thursday, Jan. 12, at the
American Legion Post 178 elect a board of directors and fill other positions for the upcoming 2023 season.
Approximately 20 members of the league attended. Officers elected were D.J Reilly, president; Rob Cooper, vice president; Aimee Walsh, secretary and Amiee Duncan, treasurer.
Other positions filled included: Player Agent, Safety Officer, Coaching Coordinator, Marketing and Public Relations Manager and Sponsorship and Fundraising Manager.
The Webutuck Little League has become affiliated under the Little League Baseball nonprofit organization based in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania, that organizes local youth baseball and softball leagues throughout the United States and the world.
Treasurer Duncan announced that the league is seeking volunteers for coaching and first aid and for people to staff the concession stand.
The league is aiming to hold its opening game for the 2023 season in mid-April. Last year, the league expected that it would have about 40 players and ended up with about 100. This year players will have games in Millerton at Eddie Collins Memorial Park and at Beekman Park in Amenia.
Duncan also said the league wants to pursue grant opportunities and could use volunteers from the community to help in applying for grants. The league received a grant from Dutchess County last year as part of the first group of awards under the county’s “Learn, Play, Create” program to be used for uniforms and equipment and to offset registration costs, among other items.
The next meeting of the league membership will be Thursday, Feb. 9, at a location to be announced.
