TBA 100a  logo Final-003Anyone still interested in our Tee Ball baseball program may submit an application (without payment) and be placed on a numerical waiting list in the event that a roster opening becomes available.

To address overwhelming popular demand, the Committee has decided to expand and add two more teams to our Mosquito Division (2002-2003) age classification. Interested applicants are asked to submit a registration with payment ASAP as roster spaces are limited.
