Kiwanis Little League will hold tryouts Saturday, February 25 at the Kiwanis baseball complex in Lebanon's Baird Park.
Little leaguers age 8-12 need to register either in person on Saturday or online prior to tryouts. The first session will begin at 10 a.m. for 11 and 12 year olds who did not play in the league last year with 9-10 year old tryouts following at 12 noon.
All 9-10 year olds need to tryout including returning players from last year. No tryouts are required for 8 year olds.
The 57 year old league has launched a new website for registration and to record stats, photos and even video highlights of the upcoming season.
The site, www.lebanonyouthlittleleague.com, is live and active for interested players and their parents to browse and to learn more about the Kiwanis Little League.
A new 9-10 year old division has been added this year for advanced players to compete in player-pitch Little League baseball games.
"The 9-10 year old league is new and will allow the kids that want a higher level of baseball in this age range to compete with kids with similar skill sets. We will still offer a minor league program for those who can compete in a machine-pitch setting," explained Sean Patrick Kiwanis Little League President.
The minor league division will field players in age ranges from 8 to 10 years old. Those 9 and 10 years old who do not make the major league division are automatically placed on a minor league team.
"We will have three divisions this year, a minor league for entry level players, and two major league divisions for more advanced players. We hope to have four or five teams in our 9-10 year old division and five or six teams in our 11-12 year old division," Patrick added.
