The ball diamonds beckon as another slo-pitch season is set to get underway.
The Nanaimo Adult Recreational Slo-Pitch League is putting out its annual call for players as registration is coming up Tuesday, April 16, and April 18 at the McGirr Sports Fields.
The league is for men 50-plus and women 45-plus and league president Michael Hunt said more players are needed to help ensure the teams are even so that the games are fun for everyone.
“It’s not a real hard, competitive league, but it’s a fun league and it takes the fun out of it having one team stronger than the other,” he said.
The league could use some larger rosters so that the teams aren’t too short-handed if players miss a game here and there.
“Once we get into June and July, people go on holidays…” Hunt said. “We play for six months, so you’re bound to see some people not play the whole thing like I do, ‘cause I don’t go anywhere.”
The season runs from April through September and cost is $80 for the season to play twice a week or $50 to play once a week.
Next week’s registration days will start at 9:30 a.m., with pickup games to follow on both days.
