HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ -- Hasbrouck Heights Little League held an end-of-year Trophy Night Ceremony at the baseball complex Sunday evening. Players, parents and siblings were invited to share in the young athletes accomplishments from the season. The trophy presentation is usually held in conjunction with the annual League picnic and skills competition in mid-June. But it was washed out by a thunderstorm.

It was the inaugural year tor the 50/70 regular season and All Star teams. It was established as a transitional league to help players adjust from playing on the Little League-sized field to a Babe Ruth/high school field. The 50/70 dimensions provide an intermediate field while players continue to develop their skills.
