To the Tiverton Little League, Chad Mercer, Tom Perella and Claudia Linhares:

On behalf of the Peckham Family, I would like to thank you and the nine teams who made it possible to have another exciting "Pesky Peckham" Little League Tournament this summer.  

Congratulations to the winning team CLCS from Cranston and the runner-up from Middletown. 

In this sixteenth annual tournament, our family was honored to be able to distribute $1,000 scholarships to three Tiverton High School seniors. 

I would like to express my gratitude to all the volunteers for their support and contributions that make this tournament possible. Thank you for being a vital part of the community; our youth are fortunate to have such dedicated leaders.  Best of luck to the 2017 scholarship recipients: Stephen Gacioch, Justin Levesque, and Zachary Peroni.
