As winter sports begin to wind down in west central Saskatchewan, that means the fields will soon be turning green and ball players will be getting ready for the 2019 season.

Kindersley Minor Ball will soon be getting their staff and volunteers back onto the diamonds over the next few weeks with their ball progarms starting up in May. Over 300 players are registered for ball in Kindersley this spring and summer, and there is room for those who plan to do late registration for their child available until April 12th.

Chad Miller, who is the president of KMB, says the organization is really happy with the initial numbers they have for registration this year. He speaks more on what they're expecting for with rosters and building teams from their figures.

Something the organization has taken pride in over the years is delivering top quality conditions to ball diamonds throughout the municipality. In order to follow those expectations year after year, it requires updated equipment, plenty of hours from people in the community to work on the fields, and of course funds.

With the help from the Town of Kindersley and companies in the area, KMB has continued to check off those boxes over the last several summers, and it looks like this season will be nothing different from the organization. As Miller puts it, their maintenance program has been "extremely efficient" in the last couple years due to these opportunities and the effort they put in to their facilities

It's still a little early for the maintenance crew to get started on getting the ball parks ready. They usually get to work at the end of April, but Miller admits they may have to begin a little earlier this spring. He sheds light on some of the upgrades the organization will be working on over the next little while.

Sports equipment shops have already been busy as parents focus on preparing their children for the season ahead. And surely some kids have already shaken the dust off from their gloves and have tossed a ball around in the backyard or on the street since the snow has melted away.

It's only a matter of weeks until they can sport their uniforms once again and return to playing the sport they love.
