Here's a reminder to all the kids and parents out there that the Little League season is almost upon us which means teams are getting organized and coaches are getting found with a start to game season by late April.

Last year at this time, the pandemic had schools, businesses and government offices shut down as the rise of the coronavirus was sweeping across the nation.  Here in Maine, different Little Leagues were deciding to call off the season while others kept at it for 2020.

This year, a year into the pandemic and while exercising continued caution, Bangor area Little Leagues are going forward with their seasons while getting ready to adjust as restrictions are needed or lifted.

Some little leagues are finding that there is a marked decrease in registrations and want parents, caregivers and kids alike to know that this little league season is happening while continuing to be cautious of the virus and sticking to strict health guidelines.

 

In Bangor, there are two little league groups, Bangor East and Bangor West, and both leagues are looking to bump up their registrations this year with the starting of training nearly underway.
