WELCOME to First String "A Community Team," Inc.!



Greetings First String families!  

By now, all Suited and Farm league players have been assigned teams and should have been contacted by their coaches. Practices and games have been scheduled; however, changes have already been made, so I will need to make corrections and will email everyone their schedules as they come in. If you have any questions, please contact your player's coach and he/she will be able to answer them. 

PRACTICE AND TEAM PLACEMENT  for T-Ball players has been scheduled for this Thursday, April 21st, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. at McFarland Field by Douglass Park (Behind Booker T Washington Elementary). Any questions or concerns should be directed at Coach McFarland who can be contacted via phone at 217-417-4331. Once teams have been developed, practice and game schedules will be coordinated and I will update the cite with the information. I will also email all parents of T-Ball players with the same information so that you can coordinate your personal schedules accordingly. If at any time you have questions about this, please feel free to contact me.

 REMINDER: If you have yet to submit payment for the season, please do so at your earliest convenience. Your timely payment helps us to maintain our fields and concession area, and helps us to continue to provide you with the best baseball program experience possible. Payment arrangements are available if needed. Payments can also be mailed. Please contact me for the payment address if you choose to mail in your payment. Checks should be made out to First String; credit card payments are accepted online, and cash can be delivered in person when our fields are open for practices or games. Just come to the concession area and either Coach Cooper, Coach McFarland or I will be able to accept payment. Thank you!!

As always, you can call or email me any time with questions. Email me at, or dial 217.398.0714.
