LEONARDTOWN, Md. – St. Mary’s Little League (SMLL) is preparing for their spring 2021 season by actively recruiting volunteers for their board of directors.

“Every fall we start putting together nominees for our board of directors,” said Tray Neal, current president of SMLL. “Our volunteers are the lifeblood of this organization, and are a valuable asset to our league.”

Although the COVID-19 pandemic forced the local Little League to cancel their spring 2020 season, SMLL was able to work with all volunteer board members and the St. Mary’s County Health Department to put together a fall season.

“We rely heavily on our volunteer board members each and every season,” said RJ Bean, current vice president of SMLL. “Without our dedicated volunteers working closely with St. Mary’s Rec and Park and the Health Department, I’m not sure we could’ve pulled off this fall season!”

SMLL board members assist the league with creating, organizing and managing each and every season. From balancing the books, to managing divisions from T-Ball to softball to baseball, there’s a board member covering every possible aspect of the league that allows it to provide quality baseball and softball programs to the youth of St. Mary’s County.

“Seeing the kids have fun is what keeps me coming back,” said Alex Fleck, who’s been a volunteer with SMLL for over 8 years. “There is nothing better than when they are laughing, playing hard and having fun.”

Established in 1969, SMLL is a 100% volunteer, non-profit organization focused on providing quality baseball and softball programs to every kid in St. Mary’s County, Md.
