Play ball

Nine and ten year olds from Gough’s Auto and American Heritage Realty play ball at dusk at Alquina Blue Arrow Park on Thursday. The Alquina Blue Arrow Youth Sports League will be incorporated into Little League pending authorization, and the completion of their charter.

After a 30-year hiatus, Little League baseball will be returning to the Whitewater Valley with the incorporation of the Alquina Blue Arrow Youth Baseball League.

Growing from an empty field in the footprint of the Alquina High School baseball diamond, the Blue Arrow youth league began just 2 years ago in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
