Early 1980s N.E.L.L. Baseball tour

Over the past month, I have been doing some research and documentation on the (NELL) Northeastern Little League baseball teams and the original locations from the early 80s. All my video and pictures will be below, please have a look at the old venues.

I love old movie locations, venues and such, which led to this small project.

When the little league season gets close each year, I always try to tell parents to get the kids out and play. I have lots of great memories from this time, and have held friendships with some of these gentleman that coached us and a lot of the players who played on the below fields.

Many great Little League players and coaches during this era, players, my brother Paul, Tony Fairchild, Doug Rittenhouse, Jim Gares, Greg Fronk, Craig Crigger, Brady Wallace, John & Ron Williamson, John Brownlee Jr, Matt & Brian Stark, Doug & Todd McBride, Terry & Gregg Replogle, Ray Sauber, Chris Schlegel, Pat Osborn, Jim Harris, Jon Grant, Dave Malone, Jeff Yoder, and too many more to name, hopefully these pics and short videos bring back some memories from all who played in the early 1980s NELL Little League program.

Coaches JD Grim, Lou Stark, John Malone, John Brownlee, Ned Fedderke, Thurm Ratliff, and so many more.

So many great memories of parents as well, the unsung heroes in all this, who always brought and still bring all the kids to practice and games.
