Fulton Little League will be holding registration at the Fulton War Memorial Saturday, Feb. 23 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Registration fees vary based on the league and level. Registration fees covers players uniforms, baseball caps, pants and socks. The fees also allow players to have access to the growing Kiwanis facility, which include the batting cage and redone baseball and softball fields.
According to Fulton Little League Vice President Dave Webber, the league’s playing facilities are considered amongst the best in Central New York.
Upon signing up, the league offers a player and his or her family the opportunity to sell raffle tickets. Ticket stub information will be gathered so that Fulton Little League can raffle off $100 prizes on opening day.
Webber pointed out that this allows the opportunity for players and their families to gain back some, if not all, of the money they paid to sign up. “A player could pay $80 to play in the Minor League Baseball League and have an opportunity to make the $80 they paid back,” Webber said.
For players taking part in T-Ball or Minor League Baseball or Softball, opening day is April 27 at Kiwanis Kidhaven in Fulton. Games will be scheduled to begin at noon.
However, Opening Day festivities will begin around 11:30 a.m. with acknowledgements for the new season, a speech from Fulton Mayor Ron Woodward, and a ceremonial first pitch.
