Eastchester Little League Offering New Challenger Division PDF Print Email

By Robert O'Hare

Mar. 14, 2028:  Eastchester Little League is offering a new "Challenger" Division to enable boys and girls with physical and mental challenges, ages 4-12, to enjoy the game of baseball and softball.

Any child with physical or intellectual challenges may participate. The Eastchester Little League Challenger Division welcomes boys and girls who reside and/or attend school within the Town of Eastchester or the Villages of Tuckahoe or Bronxville. 

Games will take place on Saturday mornings on local town fields from late April through June. All children registered will receive a full uniform. Today, more than 30,000 children participate in more than 900 Challenger Divisions worldwide. Little League International encourages the use of "buddies" for the Challenger players. The buddies assist the Challenger players on the field, but whenever possible, encourage the players to bat and make plays themselves. However, the buddy is always nearby to help when needed. 

To register, please go to

Please email Kevin Cosgrove at CLOAKING or Ian Fairclough at CLOAKING with any questions.

George Austin Returns from Curling National Championships with a Silver Medal PDF Print Email


By George Austin, Bronxville resident and avid curler

Feb. 21, 2018:  I just returned from ten days in Brainerd, MN, for the 2018 United States Curling Association (USCA) Men's and Women's Club National Championships

My team, representing New York out of the Ardsley Curling Club at the championships, went for 7 and 2 in the 10-team round-robin competition, the same curling format as the Olympics, gaining the playoff round, i.e., final four games.

The team defeated Texas (Dallas/Ft. Worth Curling Club) in the semifinal match and then earned the silver medal, losing to Washington (Granite Curling Club from Seattle) in a tight, hard-fought championship match.

The team included Andrew Stopera from Briarcliff Manor, a junior at Northwestern University and current USCA Junior National Champion at skip; Martin Sather (Dobbs Ferry) at vice-skip; son Peter Austin (Rockville Centre) at second; and me (George Austin, Bronxville) at lead.

This is the third time in the past four years that this rink from Ardsley CC has medaled in the USCA Club National Championships:  a bronze medal in 2015 in Fargo, ND; a gold medal in 2016 in Bismarck, ND; and now a silver medal in 2018 in Brainerd, MN.

Nov. 29, 2017:  Bronxville School junior and senior girls took to the football field on Saturday, November 18, for the second annual powder-puff football game, which is a lively game of flag football.

This event was created by the Bronxville High School Youth Council to build school spirit and camaraderie among classmates. The junior and senior girls came out ready to play against each other in team jerseys and face paint.


Each team was coached by a staff of male classmates who worked hard to help them learn and execute plays. The student announcers for the game were Colin McCloskey and Eddie ConnorsDavid Russert, the Bronxville Youth Council faculty advisor, served as the head referee and was assisted by Mac Crawford and Jack McSherry.

The seniors took the crown this year, winning by a touchdown.

By Nicole Tuck, Director, Bronxville Chamber of Commerce

Sep. 27, 2017: The Bronxville Chamber of Commerce announces the first annual "Yards for Yeardley" Road Race. The Chamber is honored to be partnering with the One Love Foundation, whose mission is to change the statistics around relationship abuse by educating young people about the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationship behaviors.

The 2.5-mile run will be held in Bronxville starting at the Meadow Avenue entrance to the school at 9:00 am on October 14 to benefit the One Love Foundation, which has its headquarters in the heart of Bronxville's business district.

Registration for the run can be made at or

The first 150 registrants will receive a free T-shirt; 400 runners are guaranteed a medal.

"The Chamber's hope is to raise awareness for the One Love Foundation within our village and beyond," said Nicole Tuck, director of the Bronxville Chamber of Commerce.

A portion of the proceeds will go to the foundation. In addition, runners will be able to sponsor a social fundraising campaign for One Love through CrowdRise. More information can be found when registering.

The run will start and finish on Meadow Avenue by The Bronxville School. Immediately following completion of the run, runners will be directed to Park Place for a block party, where run sponsors will have exhibits and each runner will be presented with a medal. There will be music, food, and give-a-ways.

"We have always been incredibly grateful for the early support we've received from our home community of Bronxville," said Sharon Robinson, vice chair of One Love and cousin of Yeardley Love's, in whose memory One Love was founded (see below). "This race is a perfect way to punctuate our deepened commitment to serving Bronxville and greater Westchester with a new retail presence and a robust docket of new community activities this fall." 

This initiative has been supported by the following key sponsors in addition to other chamber members who are sponsoring this community event: NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital, Pete's Tavern, Bronxville Auto Collision, Inc., Ladle Of Love, Acme, and Bronxville Fitness Club.

Founded in 2010 to honor the memory of Yeardley Love (known as "Yards"), who was beaten to death by her ex-boyfriend just three weeks before their graduation from the University of Virginia, One Love's mission is to end relationship abuse by educating young people about healthy and unhealthy relationship behaviors and empowering them to be leaders driving change in their communities. Over the last two years, more than 135,000 young people in communities across the country have participated in the Escalation Workshop, and almost 60 million have viewed the #ThatsNotLove campaign on social media.
