Borough President Diaz Hosts Annual Little League Tournament
Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. presents the championship trophy for his annual “Borough President’s Cup” Little league tournament to the Kingsbridge Knights, who defeated Grand Slam Little League 4-2 on Thursday, September 3, at Yankee Stadium.
The tournament, now in its fifth year, is co-sponsored by the New York Yankees and AT&T. To compete for the “Borough President’s Cup,” players for each Little League had to meet a set of requirements unrelated to their performance on the field. Those included a B-average in school, 90 percent or greater school attendance and a demonstrated commitment to community service. –Photo by Robert Benimoff.
