Fall baseball for boys 7-12 — born between 5/01/2002 and 4/30/2009.

For those new to the Fall Baseball League, it is a great opportunity to get a jump-start into next season.

For kids in the younger age groups moving up, this will be their first look at facing kid-pitching, as opposed to a coach or a machine. It will get them acclimated and ready for the spring season.

Piggy in the arms of one of his rescuers.

Piggy in the arms of one of his rescuers.

To all the caring Orange residents and others who shared his story, I am happy to let you know that Piggy Has Been Found.

His owner said, “He crossed Boston Post Road and he was caught in the woods next to Home Depot. Thank goodness he didn’t get hurt!! An Orange police officer and Buddha Dog Rescue were totally responsible for us getting him back. We couldn’t be more grateful!!!”

He’s home with his family and most likely relaxing for the first time in nearly three days.

His family extends their gratitude to everyone who helped in the search and passed the word along through social networks.

This is the type of happy ending that everyone was hoping for.

Welcome Home Piggy — Now don’t ever do that again!

(But, if you do, we’ll be there for you.)

From the owner on Sunday night:

No luck with the last sighting. We had to stop for the night because it was too dark. We will be back in the morning.

Please call my cell 860-919-7477 if you see or find him. He is very friendly just frightened.


His tail is mostly tan, if it has white, it would only be a little bit. The underside is whiter


For those who are looking, we believe Piggy has been staying in the general vicinity, we saw him recently, if you live nearby to 273 Hawthorne Street and you have a plant border from your neighbor in any direction, please go check around for him.
