On Saturday, June 15, the Scarsdale baseball community gathered at the Crossway fields to celebrate Super Saturday, a fun-filled day of activities centered around Scarsdale Little League. The day featured championship games in three divisions: The Raptors won the Atlantic Division (mostly fifth- and sixth-graders), the Blue Rocks won the Pacific Division (mostly fourth-graders) and the Lake Monsters won the third-grade division.

Zane Kohn won the Scoop Shop Home Run Derby before joining select Atlantic Division players in an All-Star Game. The day concluded with the SLL board winning a close softball game against the SLL coaches.
