The Babylon Little League will hold its 5th annual Hits for Hunger event with the boys and girls of the league, ages 5-12, on Friday, October 18, at the Locust Ave. fields to raise funds and food donations for the local community. The event will be a fun family night out for a good cause with all funds and donations supporting local families in need.
“The Babylon Little League has been an integral part of the Babylon community for more than 65 years,” said Colin Coffey, president of the Babylon Little League. “We teach more than baseball and softball to the children as we look to reinforce lifelong skills such as teamwork, citizenship and community involvement. Hits for Hunger is a great example of an event that does just that as we teach our young players about the importance of giving back to our community.”
Hits for Hunger
When: Friday, October 18, from 6 – 9 p.m.
Where: Locust Ave. Little League Fields in Babylon.
What: Babylon Little League Hits for Hunger in support of local families in need.
For the Hits for Hunger event, Babylon Little League boys and girls will receive instruction from professional and league coaches. Parents and community members alike are welcome to come down to encourage the children and drop off non-perishable food donations. In addition, we will be selling hamburgers and hot dogs for $1 each, with profits going directly to families in need. Babylon Little League players interested in participating can register through SI Play.
In addition, Babylon Little League registration for baseball and softball for spring 2020 opens on October 15 and interested families can learn more at Hits for Hunger, at our booth at the Babylon Fall Festival on October 19.
