Little League district playoffs and more coming up this week.
As of earlier this week, all three East Hampton Little League boys teams were contending for District 36 Final Fours.
There were three Little League games here at high noon Sunday — two 11-to-12-year-old boys games at Pantigo and an 11-12 girls game at East Hampton High School.
Bob Budd, who is to be inducted into East Hampton High School’s Hall of Fame in the fall, has been associated with Bonac’s football program for the past half-century — the last 17 years as a volunteer.
Going into last night’s games, Hampton F.C.-Bill Miller, at 6-0-3, led the Wednesday evening 7-on-7 men’s soccer league, with 21 points, followed by Bateman Painting, the fall runner-up to Maidstone Market, at 5-0-4, with 19.
