Due to the thunder storm last night, we had to reschedule the Mosquito house wind up to today at the SC Indians ball game. The Mosquito division will share the night with the T-Ball division as they are planned for their windup tonight as well.
Save the date on our calendar! September 6th, IPlex Auditorium, doors open at 5PM. As the itinerary gets finalized more info will be published.
Due to the wet weather, we will be cancelling T-ball for today. Try again on Wednesday
Please take note that all baseball is cancelled for May 10th
