Little League boundaries are merged and expanded

Gone are the days of Gary baseball and softball players being confined to their outdated boundaries. As of now, Gary has eliminated its boundaries and is now the Calumet Region Little League.

“Coming together as one league in the city of Gary has been my goal since taking over as President of Gary Metro five years ago. I’m excited to see our talents come together to show what an impact we can be in the Little League International world,” stated Kevin Bradley.

Details of the merger have Miller Little League and Gary Metro Little League playing under the same league, Calumet Region Little League (CRLL). Baseball and Softball players will now have the option of playing on teams with players from around the city.

CRLL’s boundaries have expanded, going east to include northern Lake Station, and south to include Merrillville to US-30.

The northern Lake Station boundaries were included in Miller Little League’s boundaries in 2020, and a portion of the Merrillville Little League’s boundaries were added to Gary Metro Little League’s boundaries in December of 2020.

“We have a huge opportunity to work together to grow our league, with everyone pulling in the same direction. By absorbing boundaries from other neighboring leagues who have, unfortunately ceased operations, we are looking to combine the diversity and strengths of our players to create a stronger, more competitive League in District 1,” stated Tracy Brough.

Barring any COVID-19 related restrictions, league play is slated to begin in April 2021.

Registration fees are $125 for the 1st player in each family, with an early registration discount that brings the fee down to a very affordable $60. Subsequent Family Discounts will apply.

For now, players and volunteers can register at www.millerlittleleague.com.
