Base­ball/soft­ball lessons

The Chatham Daily News - - SPORTS -

Young­sters can get a taste of base­ball and soft­ball through the new Lil’ Slug­gers coed league.

The Chatham Mi­nor Base­ball As­so­ci­a­tion and Chatham Girls Mi­nor Soft­ball As­so­ci­a­tion have teamed up to teach fun­da­men­tal skills to 3-5 year-olds dur­ing an eight-week pro­gram in June and July.

“This part­ner­ship ce­ments the CMBA and CGMSA com­mit­ment to de­vel­op­ing our youngest play­ers to strengthen both or­ga­ni­za­tions for years to come,” CMBA pres­i­dent Ja­son Chick­owski said in a state­ment. Five-year-olds (born in 2014) will play Mon­days and 3-4 year-olds (born in 2015-16) will play Wed­nes­days.

The $25 regis­tra­tion fee in­cludes a team T-shirt and medal.

“We have al­ways been ded­i­cated to keep­ing regis­tra­tion fees as low as pos­si­ble to make play­ing the game as ac­ces­si­ble to as many kids as we can” CGMSA pres­i­dent Bryan Depencier said, “and by team­ing up with Chatham Mi­nor Base­ball and shar­ing some of our re­sources, we are able to do ex­actly that.”

Lil’ Slug­gers re­places the mi­nor base­ball mite clinic and the mi­nor soft­ball Blast­ball pro­gram.

Go to ck­ea­ or chatham­mi­nor­base­ to regis­ter or re­ceive more in­for­ma­tion. On­line regis­tra­tion at the CMBA site be­gins Feb. 1.
