PRLL 2022 Season


AUG. 1, 2022:   The PRLL Boys 12U All-Star team has won the annual ARC Tournament, hosted by New City Little League.  The team took the title with a decisive 6-0 victory over the NVCC (Nyack-Valley Cottage-Congers) team. PRLL had previously defeated Haverstraw, 8-4; New City, 9-4 and NVCC, 11-7.  Congratulations to the champions! 

Previous PRLL ARC Tournament champions in the 21st century were the Major Boys teams of 2015 and 2019. 


JULY 18, 2022:      Thanks to Suffern Little League for hosting the 2022 Vincent Crotty Memorial Tournament. 🥎 Softball Update🥎 The Pearl River softball 11/12 year olds placed 2nd in the 12 year old division. The girls battled into the championship and barely missed the win by just 1 run. The PRLL 10 year olds placed 1st 🏆 going undefeated in the tournament - winning 6 games across 5 days and out scoring their opponents by a total of 67-23 runs. Congrats to the all girls and thanks to the organizers, officials, coaches and families.  That team also was previously the runner-up in the District 18 Little League Tournament, dropping a close 13-12 decision in the championship game.  A banner summer.  Go PR!

5/21/2022: THANK YOU, TOM BOCKET!!

Son of PRLL co-founder Mooney Bocket donates $1,000 to League.

PRLL had a welcome visitor this week.  Tom Bocket, son of PRLL co-founder Mooney Bocket, was in Pearl River from his home in Cape May and made a donation of $1,000 to PRLL.  The Bocket family continues to support our children as it has since 1953, when Mooney and Art Hopper gathered community leaders and formed one of Rockland County's first Little Leagues.  Many thanks to Tom and the rest of the Bocket family!


Many team members are former PRLL players. Grace Scrima sets HR mark.

May 12:  The PR High School Softball team has won the Conference 2E league title with a 15-0 win over Nanuet.  Many of the team members are graduates of PRLL, including Grace Scrima, who, on May 5, broke PRHS's season record for home runs with her 8th round tripper (she has since hit her 9th).  She is now also the school career HR leader with 14. 

4/1/2022: Thank You, Joanie!!

News PhotoJoan Bourke steps down after 15 years as PRLL President.

Opening Day, 2022, will be the first PRLL Opening Day in 15 years not presided over by League President Joan Bourke.  Ms. Bourke has retired from the post after serving as President for longer than any previous PRLL President (Tom Coffey and Art Hopper had each served for 11 years).  She assumed the position in 2007, after almost a decade of serving the League in other capacities.  Her dedication, competency and cheerfulness will be sorely missed. Fortunately, she is still a part of the Pearl River community, and will hopefully be making an appearance this week at Opening Day. 

1/24/2022: Former Chief PRLL Umpire Passes Away

Fred Baldus was a key PRLL official and Chief Umpire in late 1980's and early-mid 1990's.

PRLL mourns the recent passing of Fred Baldus.  Mr. Baldus was a long-time umpire in PRLL, at a time when the league was dependent upon an all-volunteer umpire staff.   Fred grew into the position of Chief Umpire and was active in the training of new umpires, as well as umpiring a large proportion of the league's games.  He was also a key member of the PRLL Board of Directors.
