Batter Up!

It’s time for Little League Opening Day on Fort Myers Beach! This Saturday, February 27th Bay Oaks ball fields are the place to be for this rite of Spring. The fun begins at 9am with T-ball and Major softball games, then at 10am Minor baseball will play. Opening Ceremonies with a Celebrity Opening Pitch will be held at noon, followed by Major and Senior boys baseball. Free treats will be offered and the concession stand will be open.

Our Fort Myers Beach Little League season runs from Feb 27 to mid-May. The program serves about 100 boys and girls from age 4-18 on eight teams this year. Volunteers are still needed to help umpire, help in the concession stand or help coach. If you have a few hours to spend helping kids play baseball or can help sponsor a child or a team, contact League President Shannon Orlandini at 239-285-5015 or Vice-Presidents Tim Cherry 239-839-8950 or Charlie Whitehead 239-233-1018.

Beach Little League, an all volunteer organization, has been teaching boys and girls how to play baseball and softball here on these same fields for over 60 years. Be part of this tradition and come out to support our Island kids on Opening Day!
