Moose Jaw Little League was able to have a late but successful outdoor season last year and optimism remains supreme.
Registration is available on their website and they have an early bird special on registration until the end of the month.
“We’re going to be working evidently with health regulators with the government,” said Moose Jaw Little League president Tony Dreger. “I’m assuming it will be very similar to last year where we have to social distance out the dugout and make sure everybody is sanitizing and keeping their equipment clean… Which we’ve done last year, and we have the products so we don’t have any issue with that.”
In 2020, baseball started and finished at a later point than in many previous years, only getting permission from the province to get underway with games in July.
“We can’t see why after a successful season last year where everybody was safe and healthy that we can’t have another spring season this year,” Dreger said. “We’re hoping in May, June we can kick off and get rolling and have another great, successful season and get these kids out, getting some exercise and getting outside and playing.”
Registration is on their website, and kids are signing up.
“We’re looking forward to having 350 kids for sure playing baseball this year,” he said. “We were a little bit less (than that last year) because the season was later in the year. We’re hoping that this is going to be our regular spring, so we’re hoping to see the numbers we’ve had in the past.”
The organization is having its virtual annual general meeting next Thursday at 7 p.m. Anyone interested in attending or is interested in any positions with the organization can email the organization for a link to the AGM here.
“We have some co-ordinating positions open, and we’re looking for some help and volunteers to help out on that,” Dreger said.
