In addition to playing a series of A, AA and AAA interleague games this fall with Mamie Johnson LL at the Nats Youth Baseball Training Academy, CHLL is currently working out the final details for a fall fundraiser in partnership with our sister Little League in Ward 7, MJLL. Please mark your calendar for the November 8th fundraiser. Mamie “Peanut” Johnson herself will be attending!
If you don’t know who the namesake for the Mamie Johnson LL is, Peanut Johnson was the first female player to pitch the Negro Leagues, playing for the Indianapolis Clowns in the 1950s, compiling a 33-8 record.
Look for more details soon. If you are interested in assisting with the fundraiser in any way, please contact our fundraising chairwoman, Jennifer Pharaoh at firstname.lastname@example.org
