MILTON PETERS got involved with Little League baseball during the summer of 1970 as a coach in the Painted Post League. After five years in that organization, he moved to the Corning Little League where he spent the next 27 years of his 'coaching career'. Milt was much more than just a coach however. He also held the offices of the groundskeeper, umpire-in-chief, vice president, equipment manager and treasurer at various times during his tenure with the Corning Little League. Following his retirement in 2002, Milt was honored by the league on opening day the next year with a commemorative plaque for his time and devotion to the youngsters. He has also held many offices locally and in the state for the Loyal Order of Elks.
