Summer league registration underway
It may still be winter but it’s already time to start getting ready for youth baseball and softball coming this spring.
Registration for the Houston Summer League is officially open through March 1 and practice is set to begin the third week of March.
Organizers of the annual recreation opportunity want to allow as many children and youth to participate as possible in addition to making sure they have enough hands on deck to oversee the league efficiently.
“We had 435 kids from ages 3 to 16 last year,” said Park and Recreation Director John Gravat. “We’ll need coaches and umpires and sponsors, of course.”
Registration fees are $50 for the first child per family and $45 for each additional child. Parents can register their players at Houston City Hall, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Saturday signups at City Hall are planned for Feb. 1, 15 and 22 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
A birth certificate is required to register a player even if they have participated before.
Super Saturday has been set for April 19 to kick off the 2014 summer season.
For more information, call Gravat at 542-9139.
