Like all good things, the Long Island City YMCA Youth Baseball League’s season has come to an end.

To mark its completion, a ceremony was held at Queensbridge Park on Saturday, September 17.

Councilmember Jimmy Van Bramer attended the event and distributed awards to the league’s young sluggers. Van Bramer, a supporter of youth athletics and an avid baseball fan, has allocated over $100,000 to the Long Island City YMCA.

“I am proud to be able to support the Long Island City YMCA’s Youth Baseball League at Queensbridge,” said Van Bramer. “I remember hours of enjoyment as a kid playing baseball right here in Long Island City on Bryant High School’s field. Team sports, like baseball, give young people something fun and active to do, while teaching valuable lessons like sportsmanship, teamwork and the importance of practice.”

Each year, hundreds of kids from the community participate in the Youth Baseball League, which lasts from July to September. The YMCA also organizes football, basketball and bowling leagues at no cost to members.
