Western Eagle County Metropolitan Recreation District youth baseball and softball leagues in Edwards, Eagle and Gypsum give kids an opportunity to learn the basics of the sport, make new friends and get some exercise outdoors. The registration deadline is Sunday, April 29. Opening Day ceremonies will be held in Eagle on Saturday, June 9, for all locations.

Baseball is designed for kids 5 to 12 years of age and softball is for kids 9 to 12 years of age. All sessions will be in-house leagues with games being played in Gypsum, Eagle and Edwards. Practices will be held at the location you register for.

This is a recreational program, so WECMRD is looking for parents or community members to volunteer for coaching.
