It’s time for kids in Grant to round the bases and get those pants dirty as baseball and softball season is set to begin on Saturday, April 13.
The teams have been set, and practices have already begun on fields 1, 2 and 3 inside Grant Park. This year, more than 220 children signed up to play baseball and softball in Grant for a total of 18 teams. Age groups range from 3 and 4 years to 11 and 12 years.
Each team from 7 and 8 to 11 and 12 will play a schedule consisting of teams from all around Marshall County and Scottsboro. The 3 & 4 and 5 & 6 teams will play each other throughout the season.
