Big Spring Little League is now holding open registrations for all age groups. The league â€” which is the largest per capita in the United States with over 670 participants last year â€” has undergone some minor changes this season.
The age range has been expanded to 4-16 years. Previously, the cut-off was 15 years old. There will also be a new division for 13-year-old kids.
â€śThis will be the first year our league will allow 16-year olds to play,â€ť said Robert Smith, President of the BSLL. â€śWe will also have the new division for 13year olds, which will help them transition to the larger fields.â€ť
The cost is $80 per child and several divisions are available, including T-ball.
You can sign up for the league at the Big Spring Mall on Saturday, Feb. 2, Saturday, Feb. 9 and Sat. Feb. 16. from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m.
Weekday registrations will be held at the mall from Feb. 11-15 (Mon.-Fri.), from 5:30 p.m. until 7 p.m.
A birth certificate for each child is required at the time of enrollment.
According to Smith, fun is always the leagueâ€™s focus.
â€śBaseball is considered Americana,â€ť Smith added. â€śMost parents are familiar with Little League and itâ€™s a good sport to keep kids active during the summer. Itâ€™s the love of the game, come join in the fun.â€ť
