About CCTV INC.
||Welcome to the Web Site of the CCTV INC., Athletics Little League Baseball Team. The A's, are in the Super 9's Division of the Coral Springs American Little League, (Florida, USA).
Attention: Face masks are recommended for the Children when competing at this Age with Player Pitching. Although Pitchers do not intend to be wild, often new Pitchers will not be accurate with their pitches like a more experienced Pitcher. As a result, Parents may want to consider investing in a batting face mask that easily attaches to each Player's Batting Helmet. These are commonly available at any major sporting goods store, in the Broward County Area.

"Safety is a First Concern!"
We at CCTV INC., want to convey our "Best Wishes" to the Super 9's Athletics of the Coral Springs American Little League for a Great Season! We are overly pleased with the fine effort shown on the field and in practice this year on our Team. We want to stress to ALL PLAYERS, that the first reason and main focus for you is to have "A Lot of Fun"! If you are not having Fun, then it takes the beauty out of the game of baseball. Pay close attention to your Manager and Coaches as they will teach you how to play and understand the game, even better than you have imagined possible. However, do be safe! Two Years ago, we had a player who was hurt very bad, from being struck in head by another player swinging a bat in the dugout. Thankfully, that player, recovered well from his injury. However, this is a "lesson for us to learn from", as you must be safe and pay attention to what is going on around you at all times on the field and in the dugout. I wish you all a very happy, safe and Winning Season!
Richard K. Gallione, CEO
CCTV INC., would like to express its deepest sympathy to the Families directly affected by the Terrorist Attacks on our Great Nation of 9/11/01. May we NEVER FORGET, and GOD BLESS AMERICA!
