A season for skill building

There will be youth baseball this spring albeit not in the format that many who play the sport locally have become accustomed to. "We are not giving up on ball. Anyone who has registered will have baseball provided.

There will be youth baseball this spring albeit not in the format that many who play the sport locally have become accustomed to.

"We are not giving up on ball. Anyone who has registered will have baseball provided. It may not be in the form they are used to. We might not have a house league, but we will provide something," said president Randy Carlstad.

"We are going to do skill development even if our groups are small. We will have fun with them and a couple of times a week do some drills and skill development and some fun games."

DCMB is still welcoming players as are there are many spots available and registration is still open.

If more kids join in the next week, there is the possibility there may be enough players for a couple of teams in each division, but, otherwise, the organizers will use the season mostly for skill-building exercises and the odd game.

DCMB teaches kids, aged five to 17, the skills of the game during the season that runs from early May until the end of June. Traditionally, there are two or three teams in each division and they play or practise a couple of times a week. The city has also had rep teams in the past, but that is not likely this year.

Minor ball registration forms can be picked up and left at drop-boxes at AJ's Sports Cellar or Griffins or mailed to the address on the form.
