Calling all baseball players south of Wiles Road in Coral Springs….. it’s time to sign up for Spring baseball once again!
Coral Springs American Little League has been hard at work preparing for its 2019 season, and is expecting it to be just as successful of a program as it has been for close to 50 years. In fact, the league is just coming off of its first-ever Fall Ball season, in which there was a positive showing.
Experienced CSALL President Tony Juliano and his 13 other Board Members are all set to get started now, not only on the heels of a great Fall but are also excited to bring in the T-ball element to their home of Mullins Park.
“It’s gonna be a wonderful year; our Fall season had a good structure and we had some great feedback,” says Tony, who has been a CSA Board Member for more than a decade. “Now between introducing Fall Ball and then including T-ball, that’ll help grow our league even more and is really just a win-win situation for everyone involved.”
This past Spring, CSA offered play to both boys and girls from ages 6-16 and will now also cater to the T-ballers as young as four-years-old.
“This will definitely help build up CSA in the near future and I think we’re all looking forward to it,” adds Tony, who reflects on the longevity of his program.
And as veteran to the local recreational baseball circuit, Tony adds, “We started Little League in Coral Springs years ago and we’re still going strong.”
Over the years, CSA has made a name for itself. Most recently, however, is the District 10 Championship all star title in its 50/70 (intermediate) division, followed by earning runner-up status in the Section 8 Tournament.
But regardless of wins and losses, age or experience, the sport still yields some very important aspects unto the young participants’ lives.
“Little League truly does teach the players about sportsmanship while still having fun with the great sport of baseball,” says Tony. “It’s the perfect way to keep this community playing together.”
CSA looks to do such again, with its remaining on-site registrations on Sat. Dec. 15th and Jan. 5th from 10am-2pm above the concession stand (clubhouse) near the Mullins Park baseball fields.
“We’re definitely anticipating another great season, and since we brought some new life with our Fall Ball and now T-ball, CSA can be even better than ever,” Tony adds. “I think Little League will become much better in Coral Springs altogether.”
