The Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs were already looking pretty in pink Thursday. A 4-3 win on Greg Solomon’s game-winning single in the bottom of the 15th inning made them look just a little prettier.
Little Falls’ New York Collegiate Baseball League squad suited up in pink for the first time for their “Pink Game,” a fund-raiser aiming to raise breast cancer awareness at Veterans Memorial Park on a night sponsored by Little Falls Hospital and Bassett Healthcare.

Thursday, July 8th Ladies Breast Cancer Awareness “Pink Game”

Sponsored by Little Falls Hospital

The DiamondDawgs will be wearing pink jerseys for this game and at the end of the game the jerseys will be autographed and sold with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the Susan G Korman Fund for breast cancer research. The DiamondDawgs will also be using pink bats and wearing pink wristbands to promote Breast Cancer Awareness. Bassett Healthcare will also be on hand with their Mammogram traveling screening center to give FREE Mammograms to those who qualify. It will also be Thirsty Thursday and Kids Eat Free night. It will be Free Admission for ALL Ladies as well as guys who wear a pink shirt. (If you or someone you know is a cancer survivor please contact the DiamondDawgs)


NY Yankee Great and DiamondDawgs Chairman Tommy John will be adding first base coach to his already impressive baseball resume. Tommy John will be coaching first base for the DiamondDawgs Friday night as the DiamondDawgs play host to the Glens Falls Golden Eagles.

Baseball back in Little Falls with DiamondDawgs

The field remains a showplace, immaculately manicured, flat as a pancake, with the hills on the south side of the Mohawk Valley serving as stunning, leafy green backdrop.

They’re still playing baseball at Veterans Memorial Park in Little Falls, more than three decades after the Little Falls Mets and the New York-Penn League came to town in 1977.
