Following the tremendous success of the Sandlot program last year, Newton South East Little League is pleased to announce registration for the Summer 2013 Sandlot Program for eligible 9-12 year olds.
Instead of forming teams with set rosters and coaching staffs. NSELL conducts “Sandlot Baseball Nights” on two weeknights per week from the last week of June through the middle of August. The league provides shirts, hats, umpires, coaches and other game-related logistics. The objective is to give everyone a chance to have fun playing competitive baseball in a well organized environment.
The cost is $75 and limited to 75 participants on a first come, first serve basis. Please visit the NSELL website for more details and to register.
