The temperatures have, for the most part, been above normal this winter--even spring-like. And spring fever tends to hit even during the briefest of unseasonably warm periods.

And when that happens, thoughts tend to turn toward baseball.

With that in mind, you'll want to check out something brand new being offered by the Owensboro Parks & Recreation Department.

Their new spring/summer middle school baseball league, at the Owensboro Softball Complex, will begin in May and run through July, with two games per week Monday through Thursday.
