Registration for the spring/summer 2023 season of the popular League 42 baseball program gets underway on Oct. 1, with registration continuing each of the five Saturdays in October.
The league hopes to accommodate 600 players in five age groups, ages 5 to 14, and they anticipate all of the spots will be filled by the end of the planned month-long registration schedule.
“It should take us only a short time to fill the league, so plan to register early,” League 42 administrators wrote on their Facebook page.
Registration on the first two Saturdays, Oct. 1 and 8, are for returning families only. Returning families can register new family members at the same time. New families can begin registering Oct. 15.
Registration is at Reddi Industries, 6215 E. Kellogg. Again this year, the cost is $30 per child or family of siblings. They accept cash, checks, money orders and cards.
Since its first season in 2014, The urban-focused league has made its home at McAdams Park, with its facilities located on the north end of the park near 17th Street and Wabash.
Thanks to donations and the city’s support, the facilities have been expanded from two to three fields, plus a restroom/concession facility added in 2015. This year, the organization is adding a fourth field to be located at 15th and Wabash, just north of L’Ouverture Elementary, and in December they plan to cut the ribbon on the new Leslie Rudd Learning Center. The 10,500-sq.-ft. facility will house an after-school tutoring lab, the league’s offices and programming, as well as a facility for indoor baseball training.
