[Apr 19 2021]   Community Work Day - Saturday, May 1

Greetings Little League Fans – 

Spring has sprung.  Now, it’s time to get our fields in shape for our baseball, softball, and tee ball players to have the best year ever.  

Saturday, May 1, is FIELD COMMUNITY CLEAN-UP / WORK DAY for all of our baseball, softball, tee ball groups. We need all hands on-deck! We need all players’ families to assist and make sure our fields to be in playing shape in time for the following week’s start of practices and games.
