Summer Tuesday Nights at Jerry Hale Field

Starting July 10 for six weeks, we will be offering FREE drop-in baseball clinics at Jerry Hale Field (Cook and Hillside)! The clinics will run every Tuesday night from 6:00 to 7:30.

The clinics are open to everyone from age 5 to 12 who lives within our catchment area. At the start of each clinic, we will divide the children by age and operate multiple age-appropriate stations. The emphasis will be on fun drills that emphasize individual skills.

If you are interested in helping coach at these events, please contact Mike Ross (mike@nationallittleleague.org).

Volunteers Needed for 2018 District Minors Tournament

National is excited to host the 9/10 district tournament June 30 – July 8. We are looking forward to seeing some great ball in our park and cheering on our own Minors tournament team!

To make this tournament a success, we will need LOTS of volunteers to help out with the following:

  • Park Representative (following a script before each game, answering questions and dealing with issues, general oversight
  • Concession (we will need two people to run the grill and two people to serve the counter at all times)
  • 50/50 Draw (no children in this role, please)
  • Field Prep (raking and spraying down the field as necessary, drawing fresh chalk lines before each game, covering the pitching mound after the final game each day)
  • Washroom / Garbage

Please seriously consider lending a hand. The more volunteers we get, the better this event will be!

It is also a bunch of fun and a chance to watch some GREAT baseball!
