MEN'S COMPETITIVE BASEBALL LEAGUE

For men 18 years and older, there's a competitive baseball league in town. Men's Senior Baseball League aspires to rebuild the Taos baseball tradition of the past and generate as much positive baseball participation as possible.

The cost for the season is $60, which includes insurance, baseballs and MSBL national registration. Games are held at the Taos High School baseball field and the first game is in late May against a team from Trinidad, Colorado. Registration will be held at the Taos Youth and Family Center on May 19 from 11 a.m. to noon. Contact Eric Welch at ewelch919@gmail.com if have questions or are interested in volunteering as an umpire.

FREE, NONCOMPETITIVE BASEBALL FOR 55+ SENIORS

A new recreational baseball "league" is forming in Taos. It's free ... and you don't have to run, slide or hurt yourself, and no one's keeping score. It's fun, pickup-style baseball on the high school field for both men and women. Show up when you can on Sunday afternoons – from June to September, and play within your comfort range. Reserve a spot by sending an email to Mark Pritchard at mp@taosnet.com. Dust off your glove and bring a friend. Or borrow a glove and make some new friends.

ANGEL FIRE ROADRUNNERS

Running/walking peeps, it's time to wake from your winter slumber. We are going to start Angel Fire Roadrunners on Monday (April 22) at Mountain Sports, 3375 Mountain View Boulevard, Angel Fire. We will start at 7:30 a.m. and we are open to everyone free of charge. (Don't say no when that alarm goes off.)

AREA YOUTH INVITED TO MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL CONTEST

The town of Taos Community Events, Taos Youth and Family Center, Taos Little League and Taos Men’s Adult Baseball League (MABL) will host a free Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit and Run Competition for area youth on Saturday, April 27, starting at 11 a.m. at Taos Little League Field at Kit Carson Park. The competition is free and open to boys and girls ages 7-14. Parents, bring a copy of our child’s birth certificate or religious document to show proof of age. 

Pitch, Hit and Run is the official skills competition of major league baseball. This grassroots program is designed to provide youngsters with an opportunity to compete, free of charge, in a competition that recognizes individual excellence in core baseball/softball skills. Competitors are divided into four age divisions, 7/8, 9/10, 11/12, 13/14, and have the chance to advance through four levels of competition, including team championships at major league ballparks and the National Finals during the 2019 MLB All-Star Week. Age is determined as of July 17, 2019. 

The individual pitching, hitting and running champions, along with the all-around champion in each division, will be awarded and advanced to the sectional level of competition. Registration forms will be available at the competition or in advance, at Taos Youth and Family Center. For questions concerning the competition, contact Judy Esquibel at (575) 751-2037 or jesquibel@taosgov.com.

TRAIL CLOSURE

The Bureau of Land Management Taos Field Office is continuing the closure of the La Junta Trail at the Wild Rivers Recreation Area. The closure is required to address maintenance needs. The closure will remain in effect until further notice.

La Junta Point Overlook and Campground will remain open during this time. Visitors can access the River Trail and the lower parts of the canyon from the Little Arsenic Springs Trail or Big Arsenic Springs Trail. The BLM asks the public to respect the closure of the trails.

As always, the BLM Taos field office reminds all visitors to take precautions when visiting public lands. Visitors are reminded to dress appropriately, consider local weather conditions and altitude, and remember your outdoor essentials: water, snacks, appropriate footwear, hat, sunglasses and sunscreen. For more information, contact the BLM Taos field office at (575) 758-8851.
