About Us

ABOUT OUR LEAGUE

 Our league is designed to provide recreation level baseball and softball to the local community.  Regardless of experience or skill level, there is a place for your child within our league.  We have organized in a way that will help develop your child’s ability in the sport and help refine those skills already learned.  Each of our divisions focuses on a specific skill set in order to gradually allow our kids to learn and enjoy America’s favorite pastime.  Ages listed below are as of December 31 of the year they are playing (i.e. whatever age your child will be turning this year is the age he/she is considered).

NOTE:  We Try to maintain consistency throughout our programs and attempt to keep all divisions on the same days as previous years.  However, due to registration numbers and field availability, this is not always possible and it may be necessary to change the days that each division played on in previous years.  This is determined after registration, but before the season begins.
