Cherry Hill Atlantic Little League: Since 1970...

Providing Little League memories to the youth of Cherry Hill since 1970...Welcome to the CHERRY HILL ATLANTIC LITTLE LEAGUE website. Visit often for important information and updates regarding league activities!

Cherry Hill Atlantic - League Updates:

 

Sponsor a team this Spring!

Spring is on its way which means that it’s almost time for softball and baseball season!  There is nothing better than watching your young ballplayer get a hit, run the bases or make a great play in the field.  Now imagine that, while your athlete is playing, your business name is on the back of your child’s uniform and on the backs of all of his or her teammates.  With close to 500 registered players, there is no better way to spread goodwill and expose your business to the hundreds of friends and families at the Cherry Hill Atlantic complex than by sponsoring a team this spring. 

At a tax deductible rate of only $350 for a team sponsorship, there is no better advertising bang for your buck.  Plus, as a non-profit organization, every dollar raised goes back in to improving our facilities and equipment and making your little athlete’s experience the best one possible.  If you have any interest in sponsoring a team this season or taking advantage of any of the other sponsorship opportunities available at Atlantic, please contact Ciro Tufano at cirotufano@verizon.net.

 

Calling all Coaches!

 With our season slated to start in less than two months, we have started the process of selecting volunteers to coach our baseball and softball teams this spring. There is no better way to get involved and spend quality time with your son or daughter while teaching the game and life lessons so if you are considering getting involved to be an active member in our league, now is the time.

If you have any questions about coaching with Cherry Hill Atlantic Little League or would like to volunteer to coach this season and have yet to express interest, please send a message with your desire to volunteer to chatlanticbaseball@gmail.com. In your correspondence please include your contact information, your child's name as well as the division for which he or she is registered.

 We are a league made up of volunteers and without those dedicated volunteers, we have no league. Please make a difference and volunteer to coach your kids today.

Still time to register

Registration remains open for all of our spring programs so if you know families with young children, someone that is new to the area or friends and neighbors looking for a change, please spread the word and get them signed up for Cherry Hill Atlantic this spring.

  Charlie Miracola - Thank you!

As some of you may have heard, Charlie Miracola has decided to retire from the Cherry Hill Atlantic Little League Board of Directors. Charlie has been a part of our league for over 33 years and the President and leader for the past 17. He has help lead Cherry Hill Atlantic to be one of the most respected Little Leagues in the state.  

On behalf of the current and former Board members, we cannot thank Charlie enough for his time, dedication, leadership and friendship over the years. Please take a moment to read a little about Charlie and his history with Atlantic below:

For the past 33 years there has been one constant at Cherry Hill Atlantic League, that being former league President, Charlie Miracola. After serving as league President for the past 17 years, Charlie Miracola has decided to relinquish his role as President in order to free up more time to spend watching his grandson’s activities.

It was 33 years ago that Charlie began volunteering his time at Cherry Hill Atlantic to coach his oldest son, Charlie Jr, who is now the father of a Little Leaguer himself. Since that time, Charlie has coached his other 3 sons, Michael, Larry and Vinnie throughout their playing days at Atlantic. Although it’s been over 16 years that Charlie’s youngest son last played at Cherry Hill Atlantic, Charlie has continued to volunteer his time at Atlantic as a coach, umpire, league official and for the past 17 years, league President. Charlie has also been in charge of the renowned snack stand, affectionately referred to as “Charlie’s Place.”

In his 17 years as President, Charlie led Atlantic to becoming one of the top Little League organizations in all of New Jersey. In his tenure, Charlie was instrumental in adding a girl’s Little League Softball program to the Atlantic Little League. He helped build a clubhouse, where you will find the numerous District, Section and State Championship Banners hanging. The majority of those titles were won during Charlie’s presidency and there was never a championship game where you couldn’t find Charlie and his wife, Elly, in the stands cheering on an Atlantic team. Charlie was also responsible for building Atlantic’s signature Major’s field and making it convertible to accommodate the recently formed Intermediate division of Little League. The field is the envy of all baseball organizations that visit Atlantic. Charlie made sure all the projects completed at the Atlantic field over the many years he was president were done through fund raising efforts and insisted Atlantic never take out a loan. Charlie leaves Atlantic debt free and in excellent financial shape.

Charlie also started a tradition at Atlantic of sending their 12 year old All-star team to Cooperstown to participate in the annual Cooperstown Dreams Park tournament. It was Charlie who took the first team from Atlantic to Cooperstown when they first opened the Dreams Park back in 1996. 

Charlie Miracola considered the Cherry Hill Atlantic Little League Organization family. He also made members of his immediate family part of the organization. His wife, Elly, served as the league’s Player Agent and you could also find one of Charlie’s sons working in the snack stand. He even recruits his contemporaries to continue volunteering their time at Atlantic, long after their children have left the organization.

Charlie Miracola will be greatly missed at Cherry Hill Atlantic, but the organization has no doubt he will be finding his way back “home” from time to time to lend a helping hand.
