The Freeland Little League

 

 


Freeland Little league Field in 2013

The Inaugural season of the Freeland Little League was 1953, which makes the Freeland field itself well over 50 years old. Two notable Little League players include 1968 World Series Champion Tom Matchick and Carl Solarek, a player in the old farm team of the Detroit Tigers. The Freeland Little League also features a Hall of Fame. One of the only of its kind, the Freeland Little League Hall of Fame features one or more of the best Little League players each year since it's inception in 1953. Having been one of the more prominent Little Leagues in Pennsylvania's District 18, Freeland hosted the 2002 Pennsylvania State Little League Championships, in which nearly 2,500 people came to see the game, and more recently, the 2013 PA Section 6 Championship All-Star tournament, in which Warwick Township won. All-Star Teams from the league have won five total District 18 Championships, the last being in 1983 and have been a runner-up several other times. The league was run by president emeritus Jack Jastremsky, in which the league was of prominence, from 2007-13. Currently, the Little League is run by League President Jeff Haraschak who assumed the role preceding the 2014 season. The five current Little League teams in Freeland include The Jeddo Stars, Freeland Fire Department, Knights of ColumbusAmerican Legion, and VFW. Opening Day for The Freeland Little League's 62nd season was held on May 5th, 2015.

Customs

 

 


Since a large demographic of people in Freeland are of Irish descent, every year, there is a St. Patrick's Day parade through downtown followed by a dinner. There are also annual events for Memorial Day and Veterans Day, due to the large amount of retired and active duty soldiers living in the surrounding areas. (Especially with the VFW and American Legion buildings being nearby). As part of the Memorial Day celebration, an annual Pub Run takes place, in which participants run a course with bars along the way. Participants must stop and finish a drink at each bar before continuing the race. The race usually consists of 9 bars throughout the borough, as well as some that do not technically fall within the municipal entity.
