Mayor's Cup Championship - 2017

On Saturday, July 30, 2017, baseball and softball fans from the Community of Brookline once again descended upon PNC Park for the annual Pittsburgh Citisports Mayor's Cup Championship Game. Since 2012, the Brookline Little League Association has been represented by at least one team each year in the prestigious title games.

This year, the 12-Under Boys Little League baseball and the 18-Under Girls slow-pitch softball teams came to the Pittsburgh Pirates home turf to represent the Brookline community. Each of the two teams were the defending 2016 champions, and expectations were high for both teams to repeat.

12-Under Boys Little League

On Wednesday, July 30, 2017, the Brookline Little League Association 12-Under baseball team returned to PNC Park to defend it's 2016 Mayor's Cup title. Unfortunately, Brighton Heights got the best of the Brookline boys on this day. It was, however, a thrill to get to play a game on the turf in the home of the Major League Pittsburgh Pirates.
