Members of the Atchison Senior A’s converse at the mound during a game in the 2016 season. There was no legion baseball in Atchison in 2017, but sign-ups are underway for a 2018 team.

Atchison Legion baseball is accepting sign-ups at the Atchison Recreation Office for the 2018 summer baseball season.

The Senior A’s roster will be filled first and, if there are enough players in the right age groups, a Junior A’s roster will be constructed as well. Fees include a $150 non-refundable fee and a $25 deposit for pants. Players will keep their hat and socks. Fee for two players from the same family will be $225. Make checks payble to Atchison A’s Legion Baseball.

To be eligible for Senior A’s, players not turn older than 20 this calendar year. Junior A’s eligibility includes not turning older than 18 this calendar year.

The Atchison Recreation Office is located at 819 Commercial St. in Atchison. Office hours are 9 a.m. to noon and 1-5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

For more information, contact the Recreation at 913-367-3352 or Brian Kane at 913-426-1286. Please register by Friday, April 20 so that the board can determine how many teams will be needed this summer.
