Eastern Region Thanks New York City Hosts

Editor’s note: This message was created by the staff of the Eastern Region Headquarters in Bristol, Conn. If you would like to attend one of the Little League Road Shows, click here for more information.

Little League Baseball and Softball’s Eastern Region would like to extend sincere gratitude to Chris Amarosa and the New York District 22 staff for hosting the Little League Road Show on Jan. 14. Chris and his staff provided a remarkable venue at the Villa Barone Manor in the Bronx, N.Y.

Assistant Region Directors Corey Wright and Patrick Holden met and spoke with numerous New York and Connecticut district and local league officials, presenting “A Year in the Life of Hometown Little League.” The presentation follows a fictional local Little League program through a year of operation, and shows how the league avoids many of the most common problems.

The Road Show also included presentations by Andy Konyar (Little League International umpire consultant), and Frank Policano (Eastern Region umpire-in-chief). Andy and Frank reviewed and discussed umpire methods and training, as well as the rule changes. Jim Ferguson (Little League International assistant director of risk management) presented the value and implementation of an effective ASAP (A Safety Awareness Program) plan within a local league.

Little League Baseball and Softball and the Eastern Region applaud New York District 22 for hosting an educational and informative clinic.
