While the Major League Baseball season is just past the All-Star break, the Valley Stream Baseball League has wrapped up its playoffs and children are enjoying their own break until fall sports get under way.
Players from the Baseball Leagueâ€™s Sluggers, Sandlot and Rivera divisions received their trophies on July 26 during a ceremony at Firemenâ€™s Field. All kids also received a copy of the leagueâ€™s 2014 yearbook featuring team pictures. It was the first time it has published a yearbook.
The Valley Stream Herald, which published scores, game notes and photos throughout the season, presented the Baseball League with a $5,000 donation, which was accepted by league President Bob Inzerillo.
The title teams from the Wright and Jeter divisions will be honored at the leagueâ€™s Championship dinner in September, where all the coaches will also be recognized.
