Seems as though we haven’t even had winter yet, and planning is under way for the sport of summer: baseball.
Maryland District 1 Little League will hold a rules and umpire clinic beginning Tuesday, Feb. 7, and running each Tuesday in February.
Coaches, umpires, team parents and others are encouraged to attend and hear about the rule changes going into effect this season. There are bat changes of which parents should be aware.
The classes will run from 6 to 8:30 p.m. and will be held at the Church of Christ on Leitersburg Pike.
For more information, call Denny Hockensmith at 301-416-2841or Dave Grams at 301-791-1687.

It will be a league with divisions in Jefferson County, Charles Town and Ranson in West Virginia.
