     The fields are ready.

     Another sign of spring: The Blaine County Recreation District has announced details and scheduled sign-ups for 2014 Youth Baseball, Softball and T-Ball programs.

     Programs include Coed T-Ball for boys and girls ages 5-6 (season starting May 12), machine pitch baseball for 7-8 (season starting April 17), player pitch baseball for ages 9-12 (season starting April 8) and youth softball for girls ages 9-11 (season starting April 29).

     You can register online now and avoid late fees by signing up early. Visit bcrd.org for more details and registration. Other details:

     · Softball pitching clinic: Is planned for Hailey’s Nelson Field from 4:30-5:30 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday, April 15 and 17, and Tuesday and Thursday, April 22 and 24. The clinics are led by Wood River High School softball coaches and players. Cost is $25. Proceeds benefit WRHS softball.

     · Sponsorships: BCRD Sports and Leagues coordinator Brad Musbach (578-5458) wants to sign up businesses for a team sponsorship to make sure the baseball and softball program maintains its equipment and facilities, and also to help make sure each child has a chance to play.

     A business pays $350 and gets its name on a team’s jerseys, and its name and logo on the BCRA home page and field signage. Your business also receives a team photo and plaque to hang up in the proper place. Email Musbach at bmusbach@bcrd.org.

     · Coaches: Are always needed. Email Musbach for details.

     Program organizers do their best to accommodate family schedules and coach preferences. Insert those requests in the “Comments” section when you register.
