Warrior League a chance for kids of all abilities to take to the field

LAS CRUCES – Kids of all skill levels will have the chance to participate in T-ball this fall through the Warrior League.

The league has 80 special-needs players in grades one through six, and every Sunday, starting September 11, these little warriors will take over Presley Askew Field on the New Mexico State campus for a afternoon of fun and games.

“Every parent deserves to cheer on their child when they turn to first base or hit a ground ball,” a press release said. “Adapted equipment and modified rules will allow for a fun experience for all.”

The 10 Warrior League teams will play hour-long T-ball games from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays, Sept. 11 through Nov. 6, at the college baseball field. Players from the NMSU baseball team will be on the field to guide the teams. The community is welcome to go out and watch the games at no cost. League players are given a hat and jersey to keep and are not charged for their participation.

“We want to thank our sponsors and NMSU for helping us bring this league to life,” said local restaurateur Marci Dickerson, who helped organize the Warrior League.

The league began with a draft and media day on Sunday, August 14.
