Whelan Field is comprised of two Little League baseball diamonds, a snack stand and a small patio area. The field is…More named after former village trustee Robert Whelan, who was influential in establishing the Malverne Little League in 1952. Many of the league's baseball and softball teams use Whelan as their home field.
Whelan Field underwent renovations in 2003, thanks in part to the New York Mets, who donated $20,000. In 2006 the league dedicated a space near the fields' on-deck circles to honor Peter Sluka, a Malverne resident who devoted much of his time to the Little League program. The Malverne Civic Association also holds an annual Labor Day picnic on the field.
