Township to host Graziano Tournament later this week

Competition lasts from July 29 through Aug. 2, with the four best teams from throughout the state competing for a chance to advance to the Little League World Series. 

Cherry Hill American Little League is the proud host of the 2021 Joe Graziano New Jersey Little League State Tournament, from July 29 through Aug. 2, with the four best teams from throughout the state competing for a chance to advance to the Little League World Series. 

The opportunity to host this prestigious event only comes around every 20-plus years and we are honored to have been selected to showcase the Cherry Hill community and Cherry Hill American Little League during our 65th Anniversary. 

The festivities include a pre-tourney banquet on July 28, 6 p.m. at Downs Farm Swim Club (1701 Haddonfield-Berlin Road), and competition on four days at the Little League complex (200 Oakdale Road), culminating in the title contest on July 1. There will also be an exhibition contest at the complex on July 30 at 5 p.m. featuring players from the Challenger Division, which was founded in 1989 to ensure that individuals with intellectual or physical challenges can play.
