In Haverstraw -
- Thiells Mt. Ivy Field

Directions to various fields are attached. There
may be shorter, faster and/or more direct routes, but the attached
directions are designed
to provide a simple way to each field
given that we have players
from every town in Rockland as well as from Westchester, New York City, New Jersey and Connecticut.
Once again, it is EMPHASIZED that you visit
each field BEFORE you
have a game there
to insure your timely arrival on game day.
These directions will be updated in relation to any additional or different fields prior to the beginning of the season.
