Eganville – The 2022 softball season is just around the corner and the Eganville Minor Softball Association is making a last call for players in the U12 and U14 age categories.

Convenor Terry Fleurie said two registrations were held last week and the numbers in both the above categories are not yet sufficient to allow the association to field a team at those levels. Children under 12 as of January 1, 2022, are eligible for the U12 bracket and children under 14 as of January 1, 2022, are eligible for U14.

Mr. Fleurie said while the numbers in these two categories were low, numbers at the T-ball, U8 and U10 categories were encouraging.

“We need at least three or four more players at both the U12 and U14 level,” he said.

The Upper Ottawa Valley Minor Fastball League is holding its first meeting Wednesday to discuss the upcoming season.
