. Mayor de Blasio, Senator Schumer, Borough President Oddo and Council Member Borelli Announce ‘Grand Slam’ for South Shore Little League

Work begins today on Tottenville’s South Shore Little League Joseph A. Verdino Jr. Field of Dreams Baseball Grandstand

The grandstand, which will open next spring, is named for Joseph A. Verdino, Jr., a South Shore Little League player who passed away in 2007. He was 10 years old.

His parents, Robin and Joseph Verdino, created the Joseph Anthony Verdino, Jr. Field of Dreams Foundation to build a state-of-the-art baseball grandstand at South Shore Little League and improve little league and community baseball fields throughout the borough. The project will allow South Shore Little League to host Little League sanctioned tournaments in an inspiring and functional new grandstand.
