Canal Families,      
On May 5, 2014 the Canal Little League received the news that Shane Higgins, a junior baseball player and son of our league president, was diagnosed with ALL (acute lymphoblastic leukemia).  We ask that you keep Shane and his family in your thoughts and prayers as he begins his battle with cancer.
       In the coming weeks and months we will be organizing several events/items for sale which will be used to help support his heavy medical expenses. For those who wish to keep track of his progress or send him words of support and encouragement, a website for him has been set up at  http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/shanehiggins. Also, check out the "Shane's Page" link on the main menu of this site to get more details on other efforts!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 ----------------------------------------

We need everyone's help in keeping our complex as clean as possible.  Lined trash cans are available on both sidelines of most of our fields.  Teams should be changing these bags after every game and bringing trash to one of the dumpsters on site.  We do not have a service that comes in and cleans our site so we ask that you please take a moment after every visit to ensure our common areas are trash free.  Thank you.

 Safety of our players and families is Canal Little League's top priority.

As a reminder, the following rules apply to the Canal Little League complex:

1.  No smoking

2.  No pets

3.  Batting Helmets must be worn in the batting cages at all times

4.  Speed limit for the complex is 5 MPH.

 

 

The 2015 Canal Little League Board, Parents, and Players would like to the thank this year's sponsors to provide support for the terrific kids in our community.  If you would like your business to join this growing list for the 2015 Canal Little League Baseball and Softball season, please contact   Jeff Herbert at   jeff@herbertstudios.com  To download the sponsorship form and material, click HERE
