Red Hook Baseball League

On Saturday, April 11, the Red Hook Youth Baseball League kicked off its 14th season with Opening Day ceremonies. 76th Precinct Captain John Lewis joined the festivities to throw out the opening pitch. The fifteen-game season will be followed by play-offs and will culminate in a Trophy Day ceremony on June 25. The league is run by the Red Hook Community Justice Center in partnership with local community members and is supported in part by City Council member Sara Gonzalez and District Attorney Charles Hynes. The League is open to kids ages 6-13. Registration is closed, but come out and cheer the Defenders, Gibbs' Giants, Hynes' Heroes, Southern Trucking, the Titans and BYA at the ball fields on Lorraine and Henry Street Saturday mornings. For more information, contact Viviana Gordon at (718) 923-8274 or Luz Gonzalez at (718) 923-8250.

The Red Hook Baseball League was started by the Justice Center and concerned community members in response to the lack of out-of-school activities and sports opportunities for local youth. It was also an opportunity for the court, local police, the Kings County District Attorney's Office, and the Legal Aid Society to improve police-community relations by sponsoring and coaching teams.

  1. Hi

    It's coming from my insider source and it's all a little hazy still but...

    Apparently there's a secret sports picks software making amazingly
    precise predictions since 1999.

    ...used only by top underground group of insiders called Vegas punters.

    ...grabbing data via spiders from all the bookies on the net in
    seconds, crunching numbers and spitting out awesome predictions with
    80% accuracy and higher.

    Here's a video I was able to obtain... thought I'd share it with you :)

    ===> Sports picks directly from the insiders? <=====

    Those seem to be REAL predictions identified by the software, and the
    percentage next to the play is the gain you make when you make the
    bet!

    I could not believe it's possible. I thought it might be a bug, but
    word on the street is that it's real.
    If it is, then we might be in for a real treat! I'll stay on the case
    and let you know more as soon as I speak with the developers!

    In the meanwhile, check out this crazy video:

    ===> How is it possible? 80% accuracy? <=====

    P.S. Those picks are real, verified data since 1999.

Supporting the Staten Island Youth Justice Center at "Inside/Outside Legislative Theatre" Performance

On June 4th, a group of the Red Hook Youth Court members and staff went to see the "Theater of the Oppressed NYC" performance at the New School. Before attending this event, the youth court members had no idea that anything like this went on! While there, we learned that 12 different legislative laws were changed through something called "Legislative Theatre." The audience members get to be "spect-actors," which is great because the actual audience members got to participate in the play themselves and share their ideas.

The performances last night were put on by members of the Staten Island Youth Justice Center (part of the Center for Court Innovation Family). These two plays dealt with real life issues such as getting stopped for not paying your bus fare, arriving late to school and getting sent to the principal's office because of the "zero tolerance policy," getting into fights at school, not knowing one's rights, and being racially …

Thank You AmeriCorps Members

Last Friday we held a graduation for our AmeriCorps members, the last class of the New York Juvenile Justice Corps. Over the past year, the members have served throughout the Center for Court Innovation's New York City projects at various positions within our courts and community programs. They served as a bridge to the communities we work in, and provided valuable support to our projects and various initiatives. The members will be missed and we wish them the best in all their future endeavors.
