Little League Season is Here!

Clinch River Little League Opening Ceremony 04-14-18

Saturday, April 15 was opening day of the Clinch River Little League season.  Baseball and softball players ages 7 through 12 participated in the opening ceremony and scrimmage games in their respective age groups.


The Clinch River Little League fields one softball team in age groups 7 to 8, 9 to 10, and 11 to 12.  This year, there were enough players to field two baseball teams in the 7 to 8-year-old group and two teams in the 9 to 10-year-old group.  There is a single team in the 11 to 12-year-old group.
