Q. Are you associated with Springfield-Township?

We start with T-Ball (Age 5) and end with Majors (Age 12).

Q. What do your volunteers do?
A. We ask for your help in running our snack bar, keeping the fields well kept and helping the managers and coaches with the children (team parents).

Q. Why are your fees what they are?

Costs for Insurance, Charter, Uniforms, Trophies and Grass Cutting and Field Maintenance are factored in. Funds to improve our facilities come from the Snack Bar, Team Sponsors, our Golf Outing, and donations.
