Meridian, MS – May 9, 2011 – The Downtown Optimist Club announces that registration for the 2011 Season of Crestwood T-Ball will begin soon! Crestwood T-Ball games will be held at Crestwood fields during the month of July starting July 7, 2011. The number of teams playing will be determined by the number of participants who register. Trophies will be given to all players at the end of the season.
Registration will take place at Crestwood Baseball Field. Children ages 4 to 6 are encouraged to participate. Cost is $60 per child ($50 for each additional child in the same family) and includes a jersey and baseball cap for each child. Parents are also encouraged to attend and participate in the coaching and will be given an opportunity to volunteer during the registration process. A registration form is available from the DTOC website at www.dtoc.org.
Crestwood T-Ball Registration will be held at four separate times:

If your child is between the ages of 4 and 6, take this opportunity to sign up for Crestwood T-Ball. We are also in need of coaches and assistant coaches so if you’d like to help please mark it on your childs registration form. Learning the game of baseball is just as much fun as playing it! And coaching is a rewarding experience with your child.
