Congratulations to our All-Star players! These teams will compete at the District 4 Little League International Tournament representing Lafayette.
THE SHACK IS CLOSED!!!
Thank you for enjoying your time with us at the Snack Shack this season. It was a real treat to see all the smiling faces coming up to the window. A HUGE thank you to Kali Kniesche for running such a smooth and vibrant operation.
In case you miss the shack, check back in July when we plan to reopen on a few select dates as LLL hosts the All-Star and McLin Courage Classic tournaments. Stop by to check out the fun, take in a little summer baseball and reminisce on a great season at Buckeye Fields.
LIVE STREAM FROM YOUR COMPUTER
Having camera access to our main fields so parents and family could view games from afar was a great success this year, and we plan to bring it back next season.
NEW for 2021:
Purchase an LLL Logo Gaiter - available in YOUTH and ADULT sizes. Just $12 each, while supplies last.
We are also offering Red or Blue LLL hoodies in YOUTH and ADULT sizes. Adult sizes available now.
Email the league if you are interested in purchasing either of these limited items: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you to our families, players, Board and Committee for your help making this season a reality. Back in October when planning began for our 2021 season, nobody knew what was going to happen. Our Board and Committee stayed the course and with their support, as well as support from the City, School District and all the Lafayette Little League families, we had what I feel was a very successful season.
Congratulations to all the players. You endured a lot of changes and obstacles just to play the game. Thank you to the Instructional and Farm teams who participated this year, and to the AA, AAA, Majors and A/B teams who competed for their respective championships over the last 3 weeks. It was such a welcome sight to see the snack shack bustling and the fields with so much energy after many of us being isolated for a long, long time.
I also want to send a special thanks to the teams in the AA, AAA and Majors divisions for putting on tremendous contests this weekend at Buckeye and Chaney Fields; contests that were filled with excitement, twist, turns, ups and downs.
The two most notable hi-lights for the league may have been the AAA game Saturday and Majors games on Sunday.
On Saturday, the AAA A's had an early lead in game 1 but the Pirates were never out of it as they came storming back to take the lead in the top of the 6th. Then, with 2 on and 1 out in the bottom of the 6th, the A's delivered a base hit to score two and win the game and the Championship in walk-off fashion.
Sunday the Majors Padres came from behind to narrowly win game 1, forcing a game 2. In the second game, Cleveland gave up their lead late seeing the Padres tie the game 4-4 in the top of the 6th. Cleveland then got a runner on in the bottom of the 6th and scored on a single to win the game and the Championship, also in walk-off fashion.
If we can have this much fun and excitement coming out of a Pandemic, imagine what next season will be like when I anticipate we will return to full strength in number of players and teams.
Have a fantastic summer. I look forward to seeing you all back on the fields in 2022.

Lafayette Little League sadly lost a strong supporter of its Challenger program with the recent passing of Challenger parent Diane Hong. The mother of a current Challenger player, Diane's family has been involved with the program for several years. Diane always helped at practice with calm patience, a positive spirit and a warm smile. She will be greatly missed by the Challenger program and the entire Lafayette Little League Community.
Friends have established a GoFundMe account for the family's children, please support them here:
