BEWARE OF SCAM FUNDRAISING CALL
We have received several reports of people receiving phone calls from an organization stating they are fundraising for "North Reading's 12/13-year-old "Babe Ruth Eastern Conference League." THIS IS A "SCAM" EFFORT, AND WE REQUEST THAT YOU DO NOT GIVE TO THIS GROUP. They have no connection to NRLL and have not been authorized by NRLL. (We don't even play in a "Babe Ruth Eastern Conference League.") You can direct any inquiries to the North Reading Police Department.
 
THE SEASON GETS STARTED ON APRIL 25
The snow is cleared — well, most of it — teams are practicing in parking lots, side streets and anywhere there is grass and not a "Field Closed" sign, and the 2015 spring season is now in sight! NRLL action at Benevento gets underway on Saturday, April 25. Junior/Senior Division teams had a bit of a head start, with their action commencing on the April 18-19 weekend. Good luck to all teams!
 
YES, WE'RE STILL ACCEPTING SPRING SIGNUPS
North Reading Little League has fun and competitive leagues for boys and girls ages 4-16, and we'd love to see you on the field this spring. Teams have been formed but we're still accepting players at all age levels. Tee Ball — for those ages 4-5 — is just $95, and we have a special "thank you" price of $45 for all 16-year-olds. All other leagues are $215. To start the registration process, click on this link: http://northreadinglittleleague.sportssignup.com/site

NRLL Challenger Division Starts May 3



image_name2

North Reading Little League is proud to launch the second season of its Challenger Division on Sunday, May 3.
 
The Challenger Division began nationwide in 1989, enabling boys and girls with physical and mental challenges, ages 4 to 18 (or up to age 22 if still enrolled in high school), to enjoy the game of baseball. Today, more than 30,000 children participate in more than 900 Challenger Divisions worldwide.
 
Rules of play are modified for the Challenger Division to allow players of all abilities to participate. Each Challenger player is partnered with a “Buddy” to assist on the field when needed. Each Buddy's primary responsibility is to make sure the players have fun while learning and playing the game of baseball in a safe environment. Buddies will be asked to complete a Little League volunteer application and pass required background checks. Teenagers and parents are highly encouraged to participate.
 
"We’re excited for another Challenger Division season,"  said NRLL President Eddie Madden. "We had a great first season, and participation has nearly doubled for 2015. The players really enjoy being part of a team, and the community support for the Challenger Division has been outstanding.

"And we're thrilled to see the program grow. This season will feature games with surrounding towns such as Andover, North Andover, and Weston, who also have thriving Challenger programs," added Madden.

The 2015 Challenger season will run on six successive Sundays from May 3 through June 14.  Home games begin at 9 a.m. at Benevento Memorial Fields.
 
Those interested in learning more about player registration and volunteer opportunities can contact Chris Hanson at (781) 439-9031 or chanson@epsilon.com.

Updated information and links about the Challenger Division will be posted on the North Reading Little League website http://www.nrll.org.
