GRANDVIEW – The Grandview Parks and Recreation Department
will begin accepting youth baseball and softball sign-ups Monday, April 3.
Only those youngsters who register between April 3 and April

leagues. Late registrations will not be accepted.
The baseball and softball seasons will begin in May and run

compiled on a random basis.
Grandview offers several levels of play for youths: t-ball
for boys and girls ages 5 and 6, co-ed baseball for youngsters ages 7 and 8,
baseball for boys ages 9 through 12, and modified slo-pitch softball for girls
ages 9 through 12.
The age of each youngster as of Aug. 31, 2006 will be used

office when signing up to compete. There is a $15 registration fee.
