Naamans LL History

Founded in 1957, Naamans Little League's inaugural season was composed of 4 teams with a total of 60 boys with games played at Cohens field located at Naamans and Ebright Roads. As the league grew Pennington Field was constructed on Naamans Road in 1962, but was abandoned in 1967 to make way for the Channin Elementary School. Also, in 1962 the league was allowed use a plot of 15 acres on Silverside Road near Concord Pike,(now Concord Plaza) where Field #1 was built in 1962, Field #2 in 1966 and Field #3 in 1970. The organization grew so rapidly that by 1968 we had split into two leagues, thus Brandywine Little League was formed. In 1970 the Senior League program was added, in 1975 Tee Ball and in 1976 a Big League team. In 1974 the league had to relocate its fields again to a site behind the Alfred I. DuPont Elementary School, which is now the Concord Gallery Shopping Center on Concord Pike (Rt.202) and Mount Lebanon Road. This property was donated to the league by Frank Acierno and remains the home of Naamans Little League today.
