Beacon Hill Little League eyes 2014 season

More than 330 kids expected to take to field in James Bay, Fairfield, Rockland and South Oak Bay

Beacon Hill Little League is hoping its 2014 season is as good as last year.

In 2013, the league celebrated its most successful season ever, winning three championships: the major boys and minor boys all-stars captured the District 7 championship, while the minor girls softball team was crowned city champs.

This year’s opening ceremonies will be held April 13 at Hollywood Park. The season runs through to the end of June.

More than 330 children, ranging from Blastball for kids from 3 to 4 years of age all the way up to junior girls softball, are expected to take to the field this year.

The teams play in James Bay, Fairfield, Rockland and South Oak Bay.

Tak Niketas, the district media relations manager, says Little League baseball is all about having fun.

“I remember playing Little League in the 1970s,” he says. “There was nothing better than getting up, riding your bike to the park, playing with friends and improving your skills.”

Along with house league teams, Beacon Hill Little League also has all-star squads that play at local, regional and provincials levels.

 

There is still room for players to register for this year’s season, please go online to beaconhilllittleleague.pointstreaksites.com for further information.
