Spring 2014 Season Reminders
Practices for the Spring Rec season begin in mid to late February, with preseason Grapefruit League games starting in early March. During Grapefruit Season, teams will practice twice per week and play in a game once per week (usually on Saturdays). During the regular spring season, teams will participate in one weekly practice and two games, one on Saturday and another during the week. NOTE: In the upper leagues, some Sunday games in the Spring may be necessary. The Spring season extends through the end of the school year in May, and typically concludes with a playoff (Pinto League and older) to end the season before Memorial Day.
Congratulations to the 11U Vipers (Champions) and
9U Red Devils (3rd Place) for their performance in
the Dizzy Dean State Tournaments
