This week marks the start of practices for Little League Baseball teams on Indianapolis' south side and the players are ready to take the field! Spread out in school yards, park grounds and open fields everywhere, you will see teams of boys and girls with mits in hand and bats on shoulders, ready to get started with America's favorite past time.
Since 1939, Little League Baseball has been teaching children the values of teamwork, citizenship, discipline and physical well-being. A non-profit organization, Little League Baseball, Inc. has found success in its strives towards promoting, developing, and supervising those interested in learning about baseball and softball. Additionally, the organization continues to hold true to its mission of working to embed virtuous character traits in all its participants. Little League strives to help in the development of superior citizens, rather than superior athletes.
The league offers instruction and play for boys and girls ages 4-15. Players will be given the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of the sport while exercising the fundamentals of sportsmanship and physical fun. If you are interested in participating, or just enjoying a day at that diamonds, check out the Center Grove Little League web page or the Greenwood Little League web page for locations and game schedules.
