Northeast Seattle Little League Kicks Off On Saturday At The Park

John Joynt, with  Northeast Seattle Little League (NESL), would like to invite the community to the District All Star tournament for Baseball's Major Division (ages 11-12 years)  kicking-off at Laurelhurst Park on Saturday  at 1pm with the Northeast Seattle team playing against Ballard.

"This is the start of the journey to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA.  This post-season tournament will include teams from Ballard, Magnolia, Queen Anne, Bothell, and Woodinville to our neighborhood," John told us.

The double-elimination tournament runs through Monday, July 16th, when the Championship Game will be held at 6pm.
The winning team will represent District 8 in the State Tournament, which will be played inWalla Walla later in July. 

The full tournament schedule is here and you can also follow all of the Northeast Seattle All Star teams on Facebook and Twitter.

NESLL is also looking for volunteers to help at the tournament on Saturday with setup, concessions, scorekeeping, and cleanup. If interested, contact the NESLL Registrar at

The Championship Game of the District Tournament being held at Laurelhurst Park will take place 6:00pm Monday (TODAY). The Championship will feature Woodinville vs. Northeast Seattle.

It would great to fill the bleachers and outfield with Northeast fans. So please wake the neighbors and phone the kids to rally as much support as possible.
