“With the 2018 season upon us, we hope to raise $20,000, with approximately $10,000 of those funds being directed to the purchase of a new Zero Turn mower and push mower for field maintenance,” Hudson Little League president Mike Pizza said. “The remainder of the funds raised will be used to pay bills such as electricity — our field being the only one in Columbia County with lights —, umpires, baseballs ($70 per dozen) and bats, plus the ability to stock our concession stand.

“Our 11 volunteer board members are extremely active within the league and often use out-of-pocket money to help meet expenses,” he added. “The Hudson Little League is completely not-for-profit, so we rely solely on public support to maintain our program.”
