Lubbock Little League has put together an option for baseball teams to come and play baseball games on selected weekends.  This is an alternative for teams who want to play, but do not want the expense of traveling out of town to tournaments every weekend.  This program is open to 11 and 12 year old players and will be open bases.  You can sign your team up at the regular sign up time for Little League.   Here are more of the details:

The intent of this league is to introduce and to continually improve upon the open base concept and 50/70 distance.  It will also serve as an alternative to traveling every weekend to play competitive baseball.  If you have any questions please contact Gary Henry at or call 781.6000.
