Coquitlam Little League was founded in 1955. Since then, CLL has offered competitive and community baseball for children and youth in Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Burnaby, and Maple Ridge.
Coquitlam Little League has a long tradition of success and player development while staying true to Little League roots. One of the only programs that offer regular season opportunities for 4-16 year olds and postseason (all-star) opportunities for 8-16 year olds, Coquitlam regularly graduates players to College, University and other competitive leagues.
|1929||For the first time in major league history, both teams are wearing numbers on their jerseys when the Indians host the Yankees at League Park in Cleveland. The numerals will become a permanent fixture on each club's attire.|
|1947||During the pregame infield practice, a barrage of racial slurs is directed at Jackie Robinson by the Cincinnati fans during the Dodgers' first visit to Crosley Field this season. Brooklyn shortstop Pee Wee Reese, a Southerner from Kentucky with friends attending the game and captain of the team, converses with the black infielder, putting his arm around his teammate's shoulder, a gesture that stuns and silences the crowd.
(Ed. Note: Although the teammates were good friends, various accounts put the year and place of the gesture in question. Further research suggests the incident most likely occurred in 1948, either in Cincinnati or Boston's Braves Field. - LP)
|2000||The Mets release a disgruntled Rickey Henderson, a day after he fails to hustle, turning a likely double into a single. The 41 year-old stolen base leader is batting .219 with no homers and two RBIs at the time of his release.|
|2015||Corey Kluber becomes one of five pitchers to strike out 18 or more batters without issuing a walk, joining Luis Tiant, Roger Clemens, Randy Johnson, and Kerry Wood. The 29 year-old right-hander, who goes eight innings to get the victory when the Indians beat St. Louis 2-0 in the Progressive Field contest, also ties Johnson for the most strikeouts in a start lasting less than nine innings.|
Many thanks to Carly Belina for taking so many amazing shots of all our kids, and some "not so youngsters", too!
