It may seem crazy to think about baseball when there’s still snow on the ground, but spring is closer than you think.
Do you have a child who wants to play little league baseball this year? The Sandpoint Parks and Recreation has announced an upcoming deadline for all divisions in boys’ little league.
The divisions available include T-ball (5-6 years), A (6-7 years), AA (8-9 years), AAA (9-11 years) and Majors (11-12 years).

League tryouts are mandatory for AAA and Majors leagues. Tryouts are Saturday, Feb. 27 at Sandpoint High School Gym at 10 a.m. Registration starts at 9 a.m., and players are asked to bring their glove and tennis shoes.
