“The $50 fee will pay for their entire uniform which includes hat or visor pants, jersey socks and a belt,” Holley said. 

Holley explained the reason for starting a month ahead of schedule.

We are starting early this year to get more practices in to give us a better chance at  teaching this kids the fundamentals of the game,” Holley said. “Plus we just love kids. It’s like having an extended family you only get to see a few months out of the year so we try to spend as much time together as possible.”
