Hartford Northend Little League was established in 1989 at Waverly Feild. The League was organized to nurture and develop the athletic life skills of Hartford Youth, and to prepare them for high school baseball programs.
Helping re-establish Little League Baseball in the North Of Hartford were leaders and community volunteers of South Arsenal Neighborhood Development Organization.
The League began with 4 teams and has grown to 15 teams at four different levels. Boys and Girls between 6-15 years old may participate in, T-Ball ages(5-8), Little League ages(9-12), Girls Softball ages(9-12), and Pony League ages(13-15). More than 300 youth currently participate. In 1994, we participated in the nationally-sanctioned Baseball Tournament for the first time!
We continue to grow and to provide Hartford Youth with a positive recreational athletic program. League volunteers are reaching out to individuals, businesses and organizations in the community for assistance and involvement.
The League’s ability to serve more Youths and to continue a strong and positive Baseball program will depend on the refurbishment and expansion of Waverly Field.
Funding and support are sought to create playing fields and facilities that will be suitable to all levels of playing T-Ball, Little League, Girls Softball, and Pony League.
A expanded Waverly Field to be improved in cooperation with the City of Hartford Parks & Recreation Department, will allow Hartford Northend Little League to expand its services to the community and to host tournament games for Little League Baseball.
