Evanston Baseball & Softball Association (EBSA) has opened registration for its upcoming 2012 baseball and softball season for players between the ages of 5 and 14. Families can register online at www.evanstonbaseball.com or www.evanstonsoftball.com or by mailing in registration forms given out at schools and in this paper.

Registration runs through Feb. 29. The fees for Evanston residents are $160 for one player and $90 each for siblings. After Feb. 29 the fee increases to the non-resident fee of $200 per player. Scholarships are available; EBSA maintains a policy that every kid plays regardless of ability to pay.

All players get a full uniform – jersey, pants, socks and cap. Players are divided into leagues by age. Games are from mid-April to July at parks throughout Evanston.
