Ryan Tokar, Thurmont Little League
While there is no true offseason at Thurmont Little League (TLL), December and January are perhaps the quietest months for our families, as the winter sports season is in full gear. Despite this, our board of directors remains hard at work planning for the upcoming spring. Our Facilities Manager, Alex Kline and his team of volunteers have also been hard at work prepping the fields so they will be in the best possible condition for our players for the upcoming year.
The registration period for our baseball and softball programs kicked off early this year, as we opened them up on Monday, December 5. An early bird discount was offered to anyone registering before Christmas. Registrations will remain open until February 11, 2023, at www.thurmontlittleleague.com. If you need information on the appropriate level of play for your child, you may view detailed descriptions on our website. You can also reach out to the league by email or on Facebook with any questions. Evaluations for our Minors and Majors levels are tentatively scheduled for Sunday, February 12; the location is still to be determined. Plans are also being made for our opening day celebration on Saturday, April 1. There will be lots of fun activities, delicious food to eat, and great prizes to be won.
We are once again selling our extremely popular discount cards. For $20.00, you can purchase a card for unlimited usage at many local businesses—everything from a free drink to 10 percent off your order. All your favorite local restaurants are back again this year, along with a new addition of Tuscany’s Pizzeria in Emmitsburg. Please contact the league on Facebook or by email at [email protected] for more information. You may also pick one up at several of the participating restaurants.
