Clark Little League

As Clark Little League wraps up it’s 2nd full week of games, the weather has been glorious and kids are feeling baseball fever. Last Saturday was ‘Parade Day’ through the streets of Clark.  The smiles, enthusiasm and crisp uniforms were as bright as the sun.  It was a fun day for all as Mayor Sal threw out the 1st pitch.

In the Majors

At the 1/3 mark of the season,  Lee’s  Auto Body has jumped out to a quick lead backed by strong pitching and solid defense.  Renner Brown is hot on their heels followed by PBA who opened up 0-2 and are coming on strong.  It’s early and as we’ve seen in the past all 8 teams are still alive.

The 8’s and Peewee’s are playing a lot of  baseball as they begin their season with upwards of a 20 game schedule.  Their effort and determination are a joy to watch.
