About Central Amherst Little League
Central Amherst Little League (CALL) was founded in 1955 by local parents as a chartered member of Little League Baseball, Inc. (Williamsport, PA). The Town of Amherst has generously dedicated park space for the league’s ongoing use since the league’s inception.
In 1989, Central Amherst Little League chartered a Challenger League division through Little League Baseball to provide playing opportunities for participants with special needs.
Tens of thousands of children have enjoyed playing Central Amherst baseball over the past six decades and we’re proud to report that interest is at an all-time high—in 2014, more than 600 participants played on more than 60 teams!
Central Amherst is active with baseball play and instruction all year round. Our house season runs from April to July. We sponsor summer tournament teams in July and August. Fall Baseball, to be introduced in 2015, will be offered in September and October. And player clinics and coach clinics are offered during the winter months.
We are an all-volunteer organization. We are all-inclusive and are committed to teaching our children sportsmanship and respect for the game.
Volunteerism is the lifeblood of our league. Parents volunteer in many ways—from service as members of the board of directors to donating their time as coaches, team coordinators, Snack Stand workers, and field prep workers. Our volunteers manage registration, scheduling, equipment, sponsorships, marketing—everything that goes into running the league!
