TROY, NY (NEWS10) – The Troy Little League celebrated the start of its 59th season on Saturday.
There was a parade and a festival on the ball field that recently got a major makeover. Kids of all ages have been gearing up for the season.
The President of the Little League said the game instills a good work ethic and confidence in the kids.
“First thing we try to do is let them know that they’re worth something, especially when there are areas that they label and they put labels on certain areas in the city and this is one of the areas that got a label on it,” said Mac Henderson.
Henderson said the only way that the Troy Little League has survived 59 years is through the dedication of many volunteers.
