PRLL 2021 SEASON (ARCHIVE)



June 18, 2021: PRLL REGULAR SEASON ENDS

Division titles decided as Yankees, Pirates, Braves and Velocity win championships.

6/16/2021:  Four division championships were won this evening, as top seeds justified their regular season first-place finishes in the Major Boys, AAA, Minor Girls and AA Divisions.  The Major Boys Yankees mounted a last-inning come-from-behind rally to nip the Giants and win the Major Boys Championship.  In Boys AAA, the Pirates completed a two-game sweep of the Cubs to win the crown. The Minor Girls Velocity team was strong in all aspects of the game, hitting, pitching and fielding in defeating the runners-up, Extreme for the Minor Girls championship.  The Braves offense buried the Blue Jays to win the Boys AA title. 

Congratulations to the Champions, and to all the teams and players who competed in PRLL this season.  Have a great summer!

June 16, 2021: LSU TIGERS WIN MAJOR GIRLS CROWN

Tigers lineup rains hits on the Arizona Sun Devils.  Congrats to the Champs. 

In the Championship Game of the PRLL Major Girls Division on Monday night, the LSU Tigers played a great game on offense and defense, and out-fought a hard-working Arizona Sun Devil team to win the 2021 Major Girls title.  It is the first championship to be decided this summer. The remaining divisions will have playoffs stretching into next week.  Due to the uncertainties of the pandemic, it is uncertain, but highly doubtful, whether there will be a county-wide Major Girls Tournament of Champions (generally held in Haverstraw).  (Game Photos have been posted to https://prll2021.shutterfly.com/pictures - see Photos tab above ... any questions,  contact [email protected] ).

(Aug. 6, 2021): CONGRATS, NEIGHBOR!!

SOLL Majors Softball Team swept through the Little League East Regionals and reached the Little League Softball World Series  in Greenville, N.C.

In case you missed it, our neighbor South Orangetown Little League has accomplished a rare feat.  SOLL's Majors (11-12) Softball team, after winning the District 18, Regional and New York State championships, has prevailed (5-0 record) in the Little League Eastern Regionals and has gained a berth in the Little League Softball World Series beginning on August 11 in Greenville, North Carolina.  SOLL, designated as "New York" in the LLSBWS, will take on Arizona on August 11, Texas on August 13, Missouri on August 14 and Virginia on August 15. An elimination round will be held on August 16 (to be televised on ESPN-2/ESPN News), semi-finals on August 17 (ESPN-2) and a consolation game and LL Championship (ESPN) on August 18. Go, SOLL! Best of luck, neighbor!

UPDATE 8/11/21: SOLL blanked Arizona, 4-0 today in their first LL Softball World Series game.  Haley Arvidson led New York to a 4-0 win against Arizona with 6 strikeouts, with help from Ava Handleman who hit an RBI and a triple. Next game is against Texas on Friday.

UPDATE 8/14/21: The SOLL team continues to play great softball, but are now up against the best teams in the country, and yesterday and today, they dropped tight 2-0 decisions to Texas and Missouri, respectively, for a 1-2 record thus far in pool play.  They have one more game, tomorrow (Sunday) at 7 p.m. against undefeated Virginia, before an elimination round on Monday. 

UPDATE 8/15/21:  Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 protocols, SOLL was forced to forfeit their game against Virginia, ending their participation in the tournament.  Despite the disappointment, SOLL can be proud of their efforts, and their  Little League Softball World Series appearance has set a new bar for Rockland County softball.
