Area children will have the chance to register for their local Little League and then get some practice on the same fields as their Major League heroes as the Charlotte Stone Crabs host the 1st Annual Little League Jamboree at Charlotte Sports Park on Saturday, January 16.
The registration event will take place on the field at Charlotte Sports Park where kids can register for their respective Little League and then play catch on the field from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Participating Little Leagues include Port Charlotte Little League, Murdock Little League and North Port Little League.
Team mascot Stoney will be on hand for pictures and autographs, and the Stone Crabs will also enter each Little League team into a drawing for a complimentary Luxury Suite Night ($485 value) and Field of Dreams Party ($185 value) during the upcoming season.
