Ocean Township Little League
History of OTLL and Colt Field
James J. Colt was born in Hazleton, PA circa 1898 and passed away in January 1967.
For 10 years of his life, beginning in 1950, Colt sought permission from the State of NJ to operate a 6 million dollar racetrack on the 1,000 acre parcel of land he owned in Secaucus, NJ (this area is currently the site of the Meadowlands Sports Complex). Failure to get the necessary license from the NJ Racing Commission was "the biggest disappointment of his life", according to statements made by his brother (Philip Colt) upon James Colt's death in 1967.
On the contrary, one of Colt's greatest accomplishments was founding the Ocean Township Little League (OTLL) program. Equally as important is the fact that the entire OTLL Colt Field Complex (on Logan Road) property was donated by the Colt Family with the understanding that the land always be used solely for OTLL and that OTLL continue to be affiliated with Little League International (Williamsport, PA).
There are several pictures upstairs in the OTLL clubhouse of the groundbreaking ceremony, different phases of construction, etc. These pictures are all dated circa 1959.
Ocean Township Little League is a non-profit organization operated by dedicated volunteers. OTLL's mission is to provide an environment that fosters safety, security, and positive sportsmanship models to children of the community.
