The Advocate reported that a children's league was launched in Stamford, CT.
In Stamford, Kiani joined adult leagues, but it
was only recently -- when the city installed an artificial turf field
marked for cricket in Lione Park -- that he decided to establish a
children's league for his son and others in the community.
"I saw that Stamford made a nice field, so I said, 'Why not take advantage of it?' " Kiani said.
Shortly after the city opened the new field in June, Kiani and his friends founded the Stamford
Islamic Center Cricket League.
