The North End Athletic Association held its annual Awards Night for the Minor League Baseball Program this week. The league consists of 5 teams: GrassHoppers, Raptors, MudCats, MuckDogs and Hooks.

Over 50 children ages 6 to 8 years old, boys and girls participated this spring. The league was sponsored by North End Against Drugs, Inc. “It was great to see all of the players and their families attend this fun night to recognize of the younger baseball players”, stated NEAA Baseball Coordinator John Romano, “We are grateful to the Nazzaro Center and to Benevento’s Pizza and also Salon MiraBella for helping with the pizza, water and event.”

Volunteer coaches ran the practices and the games and the whole league was run under the direction of Ralph Martignetti. As always we owe a ton of thanks to all the volunteer coaches who make this a great program.
