Little League bats back in business May 1

With somewhere close to 100 kids signed up, Wrangell Little League is gearing up for a new baseball season this summer. League President Briana Schilling said she is excited to see so many people signing up to play this season, especially after a year off due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"This year is comparative with 2019,"she said. "It's really wonderful. I'm so glad we didn't lose interest, our kids are eager to get out on the field."

Wrangell Little League will host opening ceremonies and its first games May 1 at Volunteer Park. It plans to run for a full 10-week season, Schilling said, with games every Wednesday and Thursday.

The little league is currently comprised of eight teams: Three T-ball teams for ages 4 to 7, two minor league teams for ages 7 to 10, two major league teams for ages 10 to 12, and one junior league team for ages 13 and 14.

While the start of the season is just two weeks away, Schilling said they are still looking for volunteers. They need more umpires, scoreboard operators and people to work the concession stand. Schilling also said they need more coaches for the major league teams.

Anyone interested in volunteering, or with questions, can either contact Schilling or player agent Kaelene Harrison.
