Young baseball players in Heredia seek gear, volunteers

The seventh season of baseball in Santo Domingo de Heredia starts Nov. 13 and continues on Saturdays through the summer dry season.

Baseball is indeed alive and well in Santo Domingo de Heredia and other parts of the country

Contributions are requested and team shirts, baseball pants, and Santo Domingo caps are for sale. Gloves of various sizes are available for loan.

League groups are t-ball for ages 4-8, little league ages 9-10 and 11-12, junior ages 13-14, and senior ages 15-18. Most categories will have three or four teams.

Adults can participate as coaches, umpires, and scorers. Some weekday evening sessions are also planned. Saturday activities are generally underway by 8:30 a.m.

The field is at the Santo Domingo polideportivo about 200 meters north and 300 meters west of the high school, which is on the back road north to San Pablo. The polideportivo is helpfully marked by a red, white, and blue RACSA tower. For more information those interested can contact Mario Azofeifa at 8396-5575.

Other leagues have been formed around the country largely where there are concentrations of Nicaraguans and in Limón. After Santo Domingo, the main urban league is each Saturday and Sunday at the La Sabana park on the west side of San José.
