SEDONA, Ariz. -- Bring Little League Baseball back to Sedona! The Sedona Parks and Recreation Department and Verde Valley Little League want to know the public's interest, support and commitment for having a league in Sedona in spring 2020.

The Little League program is about helping children develop the qualities of citizenship, discipline, teamwork and physical well-being. By espousing the virtues of character, courage and loyalty, the Little League Baseball and Softball program is designed to develop superior citizens rather than superior athletes. In the words of Chicago Cubs Manager Joe Maddon, "As a Little League coach you don’t need to win that day. You’ve got to make sure that you’re making every player better.”

To have Little League in Sedona, parent and community volunteers are needed; there are various levels of volunteer commitments available. The city is looking for people who believe in this program and are willing to put in the time to make a Sedona league a reality. All volunteers will receive free training.

If you are interested in having your child participate in Little League Baseball, call Sedona Recreation Coordinator Ali Baxter at (928) 203-5141 no later than Oct. 3. If there's enough interest, the city will schedule further information and discussion sessions.

If you have detailed questions about how Little League operates, send an email to Little League District Administrator Coco Minner at cocominner@gmail.com.
