Baseball draft and assessments scheduled

Registration for this year’s youth baseball leagues will run through tomorrow; the recreation office is accepting registrations for coach-pitch division, (ages 6, 7 and 8) and the 9- and 10-year-old division.

The office is also accepting registrations for the 11-12 division and the 13-14 division, but if the number of registrations turned in is not sufficient to support leagues in these age brackets (at least two teams), registration fees will be refunded and the leagues will be canceled.
