Post-season play has just recently concluded for our District All Star teams, and if you haven’t heard, the 9/10 and 11/12 All Star teams brought home the District 6 Championship titles!!! The Juniors team was the runner-up in a hard fought Championship game against Torrington. Congratulations to all of the East Granby and Granby girls who played on these teams!!
It’s hard to believe it’s time to get ready for Fall softball already, but we want to keep the momentum going.
East Granby Little League would like to invite all of our softball players to register for Fall softball.
Sign-ups are now open for Fall Softball and will remain open until August 31st.
Tentative practice and game schedule is below:
· 1-2 practices a week
· 1-2 games on the weekends.
The focus of Fall softball is to keep the girls actively playing softball and allow them the opportunity to fine tunes skills and learn new ones in preparation for the upcoming Spring Season. We are already in communications with our inter town league to discuss scheduling.
Please consider registering early so that we can determine what levels we can field teams at and if we will need to potentially combine with other towns at any or all levels.
If you have an interest in coaching Fall softball please submit your interest to Heather Popella at .
If you have any questions, please reach out to EGLL VP Softball Heather Popella at or President Chris DeJesus at .
Simsbury is offering Fall Baseball. The Sign-ups are now open and the deadline is August 19th. If your child is interested please register them on their website. All information can be found at Simsbury Little League.

Please consider attending this training.
