NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Nearly 1,000 Little League players took to the fields Saturday – to volunteer for a cleanup effort.

As WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall reported, the young players were armed with shovels and rakes as they came to John Golden Park in Bayside, Queens to help clean up the baseball field.

Desmon Flynn took his 6-year-old twin sons, Christopher and Thomas, to help with the effort.

“Now with so much going on in the world, it’s important that kids know the value of community service and helping their community, and this is a great way to do it,” Flynn said.

Christopher and Thomas said they hoped to clean up the leaves so they wouldn’t slip when they were playing baseball.

Over 900 children volunteered in parks across Queens, Hall reported.
