Baseball/Softball Sign-Up This Wednesday, 6:30 PM
"In our sundown perambulations of late, through the outer parts of Brooklyn, we have observed several parties of youngsters playing 'base', a certain game of ball. Let us go forth a while and get better air in our lungs. Let us leave our close rooms. A game of ball is glorious."
— Walt Whitman, 1846
Spring is in the air. We've already seen a few Dorchester youth tossing the laced ball, getting ready for the upcoming baseball and softball seasons.
This Wednesday, March 11, is the sign-up for the Dorchester baseball and softball teams, according to Patricia Novak.
The sign-up for both baseball and softball will be at the Dorchester School at 6:30 p.m.
Based on stories we've run in previous years, any boy ages 6-15 (15 years old on or before Dec. 31, 2015) can play Dorchester baseball. Any girl ages 6-18 (18 years of age on or before Dec 31, 2014) are eligible to play Dorchester softball.
Fees will be due at time of registration. Players are required to buy a uniform shirt, which will be theirs to keep.
