The Matawan Aberdeen Babe Ruth League announced that it will be extending late registration until Saturday, Feb. 16 due to the recent weather conditions.
“We’ve had people who haven’t signed up yet and I think a big part of it is the weather. When it's 18 degrees outside or there’s a foot of snow, people aren’t thinking ‘Hey, it’s almost baseball season’,” said Councilman Tom Fitzsimmons, who is also a member of the MABRL Board of Trustees.
“But we’re only seven weeks away from opening day so we need to get uniforms ordered and pick teams pretty soon,” he continued.
Children who will be 4 years old or older by April 30 are eligible to register. Anyone still interested in registering their child, or has questions regarding registration, can visit the MABRL website where they can print out a registration form and follow the directions listed on the website.
