Elmer Little League provides Baseball and Softball programs for boys and girls ages 5 through 16. Our main goal is to provide a sports program for our children to learn the fundamentals of Baseball or Softball, participate in a team sport and have a whole lot of fun! Following the guidelines set by Little League Baseball, Inc., playing a team sport can teach a child discipline, character, loyalty, commitment, and courage.
