Championship Monday Leads To Great Games!

Congratulations to the 2020 Grand Island Little League Division Champions!!

International Division


Monday night the International League Rays capped off a great season by winning the Championship 11-
2 against the Angels.  The Rays made a strong push at the end of the regular season, that included 2
walk off wins.  The walk off hits came off the bats of Lily Nesselbeck and Eli Doyle!  In the championship
game, the Rays played all around solid defense.  They scored 6 runs in the 1st inning and were able to
ride it out to victory.  Cole Turner added a 2 run home run late in the game to seal victory for the Rays.

Minor Division


The Lake Monsters battled the Thunder late into the night and came away with a 11-7 win to capture
the Minor Division title. The Lake Monsters were powered by Gavin Lange who hit his first home run of
the season and by Angelo Dunets who hit another home run to cap off a very strong hitting season.

Major Division


The Pirates led by coach Brian Hillman won an intense game 2-1 over the Diamondbacks led by coach
Don Whalen. The Pirates scored 2 runs in the first inning and held on for the victory. Jake Castiglia
pitched 4 strong innings for the Pirates and Blake DeLoreto finished the game with 2 perfect innings.
John Wilkenson and Brock Hillman had 2 hits each for the Pirates to lead them on the offensive side.
Brenden Roulley pitched a great game and Ryan Whalen hit a triple and scored the only run for the Diamondbacks.

Striking Out Cancer was a HUGE Success

Striking Out Cancer Knocks It Out of the Park!!

Thank you to all the GILL families who took part in the Striking Out Cancer at the Park fundraiser on Saturday, August 15th.  It was great to see the GILL families come together on short notice to put together all of the great baskets to support this important cause.  The Annual Basket Raffle for our Little League was such a success, we were able to make a donation for $800 was made to Ride for Roswell from GILL!!  

On behalf of our organization, we would like to thank all who participated for your donations.  Your contribution, and the contributions of others like you, go a long way to supporting the mission of striking out cancer.  

I would also like to thank all of the volunteers who helped this day happen.  Mike Kwiatkowski deserves much of the credit for leading this fundraising initiative.    Board members Todd Callen, Jason Gordon, Sherry Blum and Jessica Campbell as well as community volunteers Nicole Agnello, Karolyn Massaro, Madisyn Martino and Haley Watches all worked together to make this day a resounding success! 

Thank You All! With the success of this event, we look forward to 2021 and our 2nd year of the event!

Joe DeLoreto

President - GILL

2020-2021 Grand Island Baseball Travel Teams

In addition to offering a house league experience for its players, Grand Island Little League sponsors travel teams at the 8U level and up. We are looking and finalizing coaches in certain age areas so a tryout can occur.

This year we are happy to be offering more teams for baseball at more age levels.  For 2021, we are planning teams for 8U, 9U, 10U, 11U and 13U.

Mission Statment:
The goal of the Grand Island Little League Travel Team is teach baseball through teamwork, and working on the values of hard work, dedication, respect, and sportsmenship. 
 
Commitment:
Being on a youth travel team requires a commitment of both athlete and parent/family. This will include a commitment of both time and money. The commitment to this team is more than to a house team and carries higher expectations. Players selected for this travel team will likely have a few practices in the fall if the weather cooperates. We will then take a break and practices will resume indoors in January. Players must also be committed to playing in a Sunday travel league (Sunday’s in May, June, and July) and attending approximately three weekend tournaments in July (exact locations and dates are not out yet for the 2021 tournament season)
 
 
Residency Requirements:
Grand Island Little League is open to all girls and boys who reside in the league chartered boundary. This area includes the Town of Grand Island or the Grand Island School District

Extremely Proud of our Grand Island boys and Coaches this weekend for participating the Orchard Park Tournament.  Both teams combined to go 5-1 in Pool Play.  The Grand Island Vikings Grey went 3-0 and was placed overall #1 seed in the tournament and played in the Championship Bracket.  The Grand Island Vikings Blue went 2-1 and was tied for sixth in pool play and played in the Gold bracket.

Both teams fell shot in their first round of the rained shorten Championship Sunday, but the Little League is so proud of all the battle and work they put in this weekend.  Great Job Boys, Coaches and Families!
