GB LITTLE LEAGUE Recap on the 2014 Season:
The 2014 BOARD wanted to share with you the accomplishments in the program over the past year. As the BOARD continues to work together, we are always in need of volunteers, including coaches, commissioners, committee members, and board members, so if you have some time to give, please raise your hand at the meeting and let us know how you would like to get involved.
