The making of a great league
After two years of taking children from the North Bronx area to Westchester to play baseball, Alma Walker Sims and Leighton Taylor saw the need for a baseball league for the North Bronx. Alma contacted two veterans of Little League Baseball, Al Navarro, and Bill McKenna, for advice. After careful consideration and much thought, a commitment was made by Alma and Leighton to form a baseball league for the area. Flyers were taken to schools, businesses and homes throughout the area, asking people to come out to an organized meeting at Nativity of Our Blessed Lady on Dyre Avenue on November 11, 1988. At that meeting, there was a unanimous decision to organize a baseball league for both boys and girls of the area. Names of volunteers were collected at the meeting. Officers and board members were chosen from this group of volunteers. That was the start of the North Bronx Little League. With their slogan of "DRUG FREE KIDS", the NBLL has aided in keeping the children of the North Bronx area off the streets and in a safe nurturing environment while giving them the opportunity to learn and hone their skills in the game of Baseball. America's Favorite Pastime!
