Did you know? Neartown Little League is the Little League organization “zoned” in the Montrose Management District?  NLL players primarily play baseball at two fields: Hilton Field, behind Wharton Elementary; and Will Weber Field; at Ervin Chew Park.  For more than 15 years, Neartown Little League has brought youth baseball to our inner city community.  Neartown, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is a member of Council of Houston’s Inner-City Little Leagues (C.H.I.L.L.). Houston’s C.H.I.L.L. is part of the Urban Initiative to provide opportunities for communities in metropolitan areas to reap the benefits of having Little League in their neighborhoods.

Neartown Little League players and their families shop, live, attend school and play ball in their neighborhoods, which include Fourth Ward, Neartown, Modtown, Montrose, River Oaks, Southampton and Boulevard Oaks, among others.  The schools NLL players attend include:  AOS, Poe, River Oaks, River Oaks Baptist, St. Anne, St. John, St. Stephens, Wharton, Wilson, among others.

Even Mayor Parker (seen above with league president Chris Bera) made it out to help celebrate NLL’s opening day!
