Here are a few of our first events to put in your Calendar:

March 7th (Saturday) - Opening Day Parade & Start of Regular Season.  Our first games will be played after the Opening Ceremonies are finished.  TEAM PICTURES WILL BE TAKEN IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE CEREMONIES.

Please be on the lookout for additional information from your Managers and Coaches regarding the season's Opening Day Parade & Ceremonies!

THIS Saturday morning, March 7th, the entire League will assemble with their teams in the Montrose HEB Parking Lot (located at W Alabama & Dunlavy St) starting at 8:45 am.  Once the parade begins - led by fire or police escort - we will reconvene on the Will Weber Field in Ervan Chew Park for the introduction of the teams, TEAM PICTURES and the first pitch to open the season.

Stay on the lookout for weather updates, but unless it is pouring rain, the show will go on.

TRYOUTS SUCCESSFUL - Updates to Follow

Posted by Cris Bera at Jan 31, 2015 4:00PM PST ( 0 Comments )

Tryouts this year were a terrific success. Hilton Field looked to be in great condition and we had more players show up than last year!

A couple quick updates:

1. Teams will be drafted the week of February 20th and you should receive communications from your Managers and Coaches no later than the last week of the month.

2. The Majors Division (generally 11-12 yr olds) sign-ups are now closed. However, if you are still interested in playing in the Majors Division, please go through the Registration process ASAP and if we are able to form an additional team, we will do so. Any players not placed by March 1st will be eligible to receive a refund of their Registration Fee (less online registration fees of approximately $10).

3. ALL OTHER DIVISION'S REGISTRATION REMAINS OPEN. T-Ball, Machine Pitch & Minors are still looking to add players. Find a few friends and have them join you this spring season!

4. Neartown Little League is now on Facebook and can be followed on Twitter (@NeartownLL). Please stay tuned through these apps and this website for additional updates.

Thanks to everyone who made the Tryouts fun and enjoyable for all!
