Lansing Little League has received permission from Little League International to register kids from Calumet City. All children living in Calumet City between Torrence Ave. and State Line Rd. and south of Sibley are invited to play Little League baseball with the ballplayers in Lansing.

According to Lansing Little League President Ray Nommensen, because Calumet City kids weren’t able to play Little League last year due to a lack of a “charter,” Lansing and South Holland Little Leagues agreed to split the neighboring municipality’s children between them. Children living in Calumet City outside of the parameters described above can be part of South Holland’s Little League, according to Nommensen.

Lansing Little League’s first registration will be Saturday Feb. 22 at Nathan Hale School, 19055 Burnham Ave. in Lansing from 10 am until 2 pm. The second registration date is Saturday Feb. 29 at the Calumet Memorial Park District, 626 Wentworth Ave. in Calumet City from 10 am until 2 pm.

Boys and girls ages 4 to 12 are welcome to join. Registration is also available on those dates for girls softball, volleyball and Babe Ruth baseball.
