Oswego, NY – The 2014 baseball season for Oswego Little League will kick off with the Annual Spaghetti Dinner and Player Registration at the Oswego Elks Lodge on February 11 from 5 to 9 p.m.
The season will be highlighted by Little League Baseball’s 75th Anniversary, which was established in 1939 in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. It will be the 59th season for Oswego Little League.
“It’s great to think about the nice weather and the start of Oswego Little League baseball this upcoming spring,” said Tim Murphy, president of Oswego Little League. “We are equally excited about our traditional spaghetti dinner and player registration on February 11. We hope to have a great night out with new and returning players and their families.”
According to Murphy, Oswego Little League offers six divisions of organized youth baseball for all boys and girls, ages 5 through 16, including the Challenger Division, for players with special needs. Registration fees vary by age and can be found on the league’s website.
Children residing within the boundaries of the Oswego City School District are eligible to register with Oswego Little League. Registrants are required to provide proof of age, verification of residence inside the League’s boundary, and provide a signed copy of the Medical Release form.
Volunteer forms are also available. Oswego Little League currently has a need for many new volunteers, to fill several positions of need. Managers, coaches and team parents are needed. League volunteers are also needed for concession, field maintenance, scorekeepers, and umpires.
The required forms and instructions are available now at www.oswegolittleleague.com, and may be filled out in advance, or at the registration tables on February 11.
Spaghetti dinners will be available for eat in or take out. Dinners are priced at $10 for adults, and $8 for a child 12 years old and younger. Delivery of dinners may be arranged for groups that have to work that evening. Pre-sale tickets are available from the league’s Board of Directors and at Oswego Printing at 412 W. First St. and Murphy’s Automotive Solutions at 21 Fred Haynes Boulevard in Oswego.
There will be an additional opportunity to register in person on March 1 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Oswego YMCA Armory Building.
Oswego Little League is a fun and safe environment for your children to learn and play baseball. Register by March 1 to reserve a roster spot.
