Welcome to the 2014 Season at WMLL! This marks West Madison Little League’s 56th season of baseball, and 14th season of Girls’ softball. It also is the 50th anniversary of baseball at Bill Lister Fields on Forward Drive.

Opening Weekend for all baseball leagues ,except the Senior League, was Saturday, April 26 and Sunday, April 27. Opening Weekend festivities included player introductions before each game, music between innings and much, much more. Due to the wet weather on Sunday, 4/27, opening festivities for those games were postponed and re-set for May 3-4 for the Atlantic and Central Leagues.

And thanks to General Beverage Company and their line of Berghoff Root Beer for supplying the root beer at no charge for the weekend.
