Thank you to ConEdison for their support and use of the fields!
The Peter Stuyvesant Little League (PSLL) was founded in 1956 and for 60 consecutive years, in partnership with Con Edison, and more recently Compass Rock Real Estate, has served thousands of baseball- and softball-playing children of Manhattan’s east side on its Con Edison Ballfields and Murphy’s Brother’s Park on Avenue C, adjacent to Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village.
With more than 700 players each season, PSLL, a fully volunteer, non-profit organization chartered by Little League International, runs winter, spring and summer baseball programs for children ages four through sixteen. A bedrock of family and community in New York City, PSLL offers not only baseball and softball instruction to boys and girls, but also such intangibles as sportsmanship, teamwork, courage and the importance of fitness. Registration is open to all interested players either residing or attending school between E. 14th and E. 72nd Streets, east of Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.
For more information about our many programs, we invite you to visit the various links on our website or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our PSLL Winter Clinics were off to a great start on the weekend of January 9-10th! Three baseball sessions, led by Felician University coach Dan Palumbo and his staff of college and professional players, focused on players 8-9 years old, 10-12 years old, and teens. Three softball sessions, led by pro softball coach Lisa Iancin, (Coach LI), also focused on girls ages 8 and up. Several older PSLL players and alumni volunteered to help with the younger players, which is much appreciated! The 8-week programs will lead straight into the spring season, preparing all the participants with improved defense, hitting and throwing skills for Opening Day!
The clinics are held in the heated Court Tent, which was provided to PSLL by Blackstone and CompassRock Real Estate, on Avenue C Loop in Stuyvesant Town.
Little League International has once again changed the age determination dates for players, effective for the 2016 season. The new age cutoff date is August 31st, and the change primarily affects players born on or after September 1, 2005. As a practical matter, this means that some children born between September-December who played last season in PSLL may be placed in the same division as last year. Our registration software will automatically populate your child into his or her age-appropriate division, but contact PSLL at email@example.com if you would prefer for your child to move to a different division. Such requests will be handled on a case-by-case basis, and at the discretion of PSLL. Any divisional switch will depend on the child’s abilities and maturity, as well as whether or not there’s room in the requested division. You may also refer to this Little League age calculator to determine your child’s division. For more specifics, according to Little League:
For players born on or before August 31, 2005: The new age determination date of August 31 will be effective starting with the 2018 Little League Baseball Season. For the 2016 and 2017 seasons, these players will use the April 30 age determination date.
For players born on or after September 1, 2005: The new age determination date will be effective immediately, starting with the 2016 season. This was the implementation used for the 2015 season, with players turning 4 to 9 years old during the 2015 calendar year to use the December 31 age determination date. That implementation remains in place, except instead of using December 31, you will use August 31.
What’s the impact of this new change to my child?
If your child was born between January 1 and April 30, there has been no impact in any of the Age Determination Date changes.
If your child was born between May 1 and August 31, there is no change from the previous age change and implementation.
If your child was born between September 1 and December 31, he or she essentially reverts back to where they were from a League Age standpoint prior to the 2015 season, and, like those born between January 1 and April 30, there is no impact on them.
