Men's softball league returns to Baldwin

BALDWIN — Tuesday nights this summer at Hollister Park will feature Baldwin Men's Softball League action after a year's absence.

The league this year will feature a 10-week schedule with games starting Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. Jason Moore of the Government Lake team said there are five teams in the league this summer.

Besides Government Lake, other team sponsors are H&H, Baldwin Bowling Center, Knights and M-37 Meat Shack.

Last year "we didn't have enough teams," Moore said. "It's doubleheaders this year, Losers from each field will swap fields. We're using both fields."

This marks the second week of softball and there's about 60 to 70 players on the team. Nick Miller is president of the league.

"It's good to have it back up and running," Moore said.

Baldwin Little League

Baldwin baseball team, ages 10 to 12 in Little League, will be playing at Scottville this season, starting Monday, Moore noted.

"Right now, we have 27 kids and there are three teams split up but we sent one team pretty much," Moore said. "We didn't expect to have that type of numbers. They play Monday, Wednesday and Fridays in Scottville. There are two games there."

The 4-H baseball games stared this week. Lake County 4-H program coordinator Seth Hopkins said T-ball is Monday and Wednesday, 5:30 to 6:30 p.m at Hollister Field while coach pitch is 5:30 to 6:30 Tuesday and Thursdays at the Baldwin High School softball field. Little league teams have been practicing Tuesday and Thursday at Hollister.
