Little League Baseball

tball playersThursday, June 30th was the first home games for the Little League Baseball teams.  This is a summer program sponsored by the Anamoose Civic Club and the Drake Community Club.  Pictured is an Anamoose/Drake T Ball player up to bat.

This involves about 55 kids-about 18 in T Ball (5-7 year olds), 20 in PeeWee (8-10 year olds), and 17 in Midgets (10-12 year olds).  T Ball started at 5:30pm, PeeWee at 6:30 pm, and older group at 7:30pm.

There is a board of 4 Drake/Anamoose residents that oversee the program.  They organize the concessions, hire coaches, order T shirts, and hold fund raisers.

There are 4 coaches-head coach Larry Clark, with Jared Street, Hunter Fletschock, and Sydney Seehafer helping.  The program lasts from June 6th-July 22nd.  The summer swimming program has been dropped due to the increased cost.  Some parents take their children to Harvey and McClusky pools.

At an 8 team tourney yesterday in Drake the Anamoose/Drake Peewee team took 5th place.  At a Harvey tourney on June 24th they took 1st place out of 6 teams.  They won games against Maddock, Harvey 2 and Harvey 2.
