GLENBURN TWP. — The Abington Little League is accepting registrations for the upcoming 2017 spring season. Interested families may visit www.abingtonlittleleague.com for more information and to register. The cost is $85. The spring season normally runs from the beginning of April until the end of June. Registration will close March 15.
Last year, the Abington Little League sent the 11-year old American All-Stars to the Pennsylvania state tournament in Cranberry Township. This was the second-consecutive year Abington Little League has been represented in the state tournament.
During the end of year meeting in 2016, the Abington Little League voted in the new Executive Board for the 2017 seasons. The board consists of President Ryan Mitvalsky, Vice President Philip Medico, Treasurer David Abel, Secretary Bridget Kettel, T-Ball President Kevin Schmidt, Minor Farm President John Cuck, Major Farm President Chris Vida, Little League President John Lynott, Junior and Big League President Jim Giacometti, Head of Purchasing Jim Walsh, Safety Officer Rich Padula, Head of Fundraising and Player Agent Christina Walsh, and Fields Coordinator Paul Stevens.
This board oversees all operations of the league locally and a player base of more than 750 kids. Abington Little League owns and operates its own fields and complex on 33 acres in Glenburn Township, which has undergone several expansions and upgrades.
“In the past two years, we have added batting cages, a playground and a concrete eating area,” Mitvalsky said. “And most recently, we installed a new driveway. Our league is growing fast and we appreciate the support of local volunteers and the assistance of everyone in the community.”
