First String, Inc.: Welcome

Register athletes here!
Monday, January 6
WELCOME to First String "A Community Team," Inc.!




Greetings First String families! The time to register your athletes for the 2015 baseball season is fast approaching and we are looking forward to another great season. Thanks to Champaign's Park District we now have 2 baseball fields. The new Farm field is up and will be ready for competitive play this season. If you have not already cruised through the neighborhood and checked out the changes to McFarland Field and Douglass Park, please do so. You will not be disappointed.

With the season fast approaching, I want to let everyone know what to expect for registration. Last year we transitioned over to online registration, which for many of you was a bit of a hassle. So, to make things easier on you I am emailing everyone the regisgtration forms for you to print, fill out completely, and either email back to me or drop off during registration. I am attaching the registration packet to this website, which you can access by clicking on the "Handouts" tab and selecting the 2015 Registration Packet form. There has been a small increase in registration fees this year; however, you will notice that First String's fees continue to be the lowest in the Champaign-Urbana area. For athletes playing at the Peanut, Farm, and Suited levels, the fee is now $80. T-Ball players pay $60. We want to thank all of you who continue to support First String's efforts of providing a competitive baseball program for our youth. Your continued support and the commitment from First String's commissioner, board members, coaches, and countless volunteers have made this program a force to be reckoned with.

As you will notice on the registration packet, REGISTRATION will take place Wednesday, February 25th and Thursday, February 26th at Douglass Center between 5:30-8:00 pm, and Saturday, February 28th at Douglass Center between 1:00-3:00pm. If you have any questions regarding registration, please feel free to contact me via email or phone. You can email me at, or you can call me at 217.398.0714.

Thank you!!
