Little League Baseball is the largest organized youth sports program in the world. However, in Laguna Hills, the inability to use exisiting fields within the city limits has meant that many of our children do not have a field to play on. There are two fields at our beautiful Community Center. Unfortunatly, one of those fields is completely unavailable because it is used by an adult softball league and there are NO requirements that ANY of those adults be residents of Laguna Hills. Yet, it is the property of, and run by, the city of Laguna Hills for the residents. As a result, we currently have no fields to accommodate one of our communities most important assets - youth ages 13 - 17. The second field is the only City property capable of accommodating this advanced player group and is completely unavailable and insufficient in its\' present form. We ask that the City Council: 1. Approve and implement the Little Leauge field proposal and improvements, enabling multiuse of the second field to include baseball for Laguna Hills resident players ages 13-17 2. Pioritize field use to give preference to groups that are solely comprised of Laguna Hills residents over non-residents for city facilities Little League provides our children with an opportunity to develop character, courage, loyalty, sportsmanship, fair play and teamwork which they can use later in life to become good citizens. Let\'s allow our children the opportunity to play here in our city.

Bill Maglinao, United States6 years ago Comments: Item 1: Definitely for a hometown league. Our LH softball girls play in other cities. Hopefully LHHS will remain available to them for years to come. Item 2: Prioritization to residents should be foremost with team managers originating from LH and team composition 60-75 percent LH residents. On another note: If the city of Lake Forest can take over association controlled facilities, Laguna Hills should do the same with Sheep Hills.
Craig Talbot, United States7 years ago Comments: It is absolutely necessary that we make more fields available. Laguna Hills is a rare gem for parent support, sportsmanship, community involvement and we need to continue that past age 12! Del Cerro is in the process of kicking us off their field for A-Ball and the older kids have no field. This community has the resources -- and the values. Let's make it happen!
