New York Life - Sponsor

West Downey Little League would like to thank New York Life for their continued support of our local baseball program. As an Insurance Company they have local ties throughout our community and thru the New York Life Foundation their agents have been giving back locally thru their donations of time and efforts. Downey Resident and New York Life agent Hector Sosa has been donating his time along with other members on his team supporting WDLL. These efforts have been instrumental in helping our league as we have been operating at a temporary location over the past two years. Their time and efforts along with monetary donations from the New York Life Foundation are greatly appreciated in helping West Downey Little League support our community.
