I can’t believe another Riverside Little League Season is approaching. Registration opened on Tuesday Dec. 2 and ends on Saturday, Jan. 31. 

Little League continues to be a wonderful way to build a sense of community. I would encourage all families with boys and girls ages 5-14 who live in Riverside or who attend a school in Riverside to participate in Little League this year. 

The community pride we experienced at last year’s 9- and 10-year-old boys district and sectional playoffs was wonderful. In fact, I saw great support for all of our teams throughout the year. It is so nice to pass by Big Ball Park on a weeknight and see so many families watching a girls softball game or Harrington for a Pee Wee baseball game. 

This year the board will continue to strive toward improving our fields and the Little League experience in general. Our goal is to do our best to ensure that every kid, no matter what his or her skill level, has a great Little League experience in 2015.

You can register your child on line at www.riversidell.com. The board and I look forward to seeing you on the baseball and softball fields this year.
