It’s time to play ball in Santa Ana – spring Little League baseball teams are forming now! There are four Little Leagues in Santa Ana: Northeast, Northwest, Santiago, Southeast and Southwest. The last three leagues don’t have websites but you can click here to get contact info for each of them, from California Little League, District 30.
“A growing body of research is showing the social and economic benefits of participation in youth sports to be surprisingly large and overwhelmingly positive. Other things being equal, if a kid plays sports, he will earn more money, stay in school longer, and be more engaged in civic life,” according to The American.
