Little League

Rogers City is a great place in so many ways! Our Little League is one example; it is as American as it gets. Above is a picture from our opening day parade. My thanks to Peter Jackey from the Presque Isle Advance for taking the picture and allowing me to show it here.
Our Little League will rekindle your faith in America. It is a joy to see all the kids and their parents lined up for the opening day ceremony, and to hear the game sounds drifting on a warm summer breeze....
We have over 200 youngsters participating this year from ages 5 - 16. Team divisions include both boys baseball and girls softball in the:

1. Rookie League, ages 5-7
2. Minor League, ages 8-10
3. Major League, ages 11-12
4. Junior League, ages 13-14
5. Senior League, ages 15-16

The League is chartered for Rogers City and Posen areas, and it is governed by a Board of Directors. The current president is Eric Brege, who is doing an outstanding job. My thanks, on behalf of all our citizens, to Mr. Brege and the entire Board of Directors, and all the volunteers, and parents who make this wonderful experience possible.

The league plays against other leagues during the season to include, Alpena, Hillman, Onaway, Cheboygan, Petoskey, Indian River, Rudyard and Pellston.
