PAL Youngsters Take the Field
More than 800 PAL youngsters concluded a fun-filled summer through the Walmart Baseball Program. Teams from 21 PAL centers across Philadelphia participated in two city-wide leagues: 12 and under and 14 and under, and two in-house leagues at Harrowgate PAL and Gibbons PAL. Each in-house league hosted more than 200 participants with local volunteers and parents as coaches. For some players, it was their first introduction to baseball, but certainly not their last.
Walmart has sponsored the PAL Baseball Program for more than half a decade. By providing a fun, organized activity, participants remain safe and active all summer, while learning teamwork, dedication and responsibility. Congratulations to Cozen PAL for winning the 12-and-Under championship and Harrowgate PAL for winning the 14-and-Under league. Both teams look forward to defending their titles next year!
PAL thanks Wal-Mart and all volunteers for another successful season, and commends all participants for their commitment to practices and games this summer!
