  BRICK – Although the ongoing pandemic has been a challenge for local sports, the township of Brick is excited for its Little League 2021 spring season.

  Last year, the Brick Little League 2020 Season was a huge success despite the challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The League brought home the New Jersey Little League Division State Championship. They were managed by Coach George Cavanaugh, who was a State Champion himself at the age of 12 for the former Brick National Little League in 1990. 

  After last year’s victory, the Brick Little League can’t wait to play at Edmond Hibbard Park in the Cherry Quay section of Brick for the spring season.

  The League will continue to follow CDC guidelines and protocols to keep the players and families safe for the 2021 season.

  In November of 2020, the League held their Annual Board Member Elections where former Professional Baseball Marketing Executive Mike Desmond was elected to an initial 2-year term as League President. With two children in the League, Desmond has been involved in coaching, fundraising and helping run the younger age divisions the past four years.

  “I am honored to embrace the position of League President at Brick Little League and help write the next chapter of our league’s great history. Coming off of winning the New Jersey Little League Division State Championship in 2020, and all of the excitement from the League’s parents, volunteers, coaches and players I am really excited about our future. Brick is most definitely a Baseball Town,” newly elected League President Mike Desmond said.

  The Brick Little League 2021 Spring Season is scheduled to start April 3. In-Registration is set for February 6 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Registration for the 2021 Spring Season is also open online at the league website for children between 4 to 6-years-old that reside in Brick Township (08723 & 08724).
