BALDWIN — Action is going strong in the Baldwin 4-H Youth League.

The number of participants has just about doubled from previous seasons. There’s T-Ball action on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Hollister Park and coach-pitch play on Mondays and Wednesday

The season is now in mid-month and will go until the end of June.

Jason Moore is among the 4-H volunteers for the league.

“It’s going good,” he said. “We have a good turnout of kids this year. We’re right around 30, probably 50 in total from (ages) 7 to 10 and we have a T-Ball league.”

Right now, the Monday and Wednesday League teams are playing games against each other.

“We want to get a few more kids out there so we could get more teams,“ Moore said. “But it is in improvement from last year when we had two teams total. This year we have two T-Ball and two co-pitch teams. So we doubled the number.”

There are about 11 players on each team. The league includes boys and girls.
