    Did You Know? Southern Offers Fall Ball!

    With the summer season in full swing, now is a good time to remind folks that Southern also offers Fall Ball. Fall Ball starts in late August with Sunday afternoon games for eight weeks. With leagues for players in coach pitch, minors, majors, and juniors, it's a great way to keep the summer fun rolling. You may have seen a notice from another league offering fall baseball, but that's only for leagues who don't offer their own fall program. We'll send out signup information in July, so stay tuned for more information on Southern Fall Ball.

    Grill Volunteers Needed for Family Day

    Saturday is Family Day, and we still need volunteers to take a turn at the grill. Click here to sign up.

    Please Note: This is separate from the volunteer form that each team received. Those forms need to be completed and turned in by Friday.
