The Antigua Little League Baseball is a youth baseball program affiliated to Antigua Little League Baseball Inc. which has been operating in Antigua since 1994.
A few years ago, an area or land located far-east of the Potter’s Community playing field was designated to be used by the Little League Baseball program for the development of the sport, but it was not until a recent meeting with the relevant government authorities that the confirmation was made to develop a baseball park in the allocated area, which will also be used by the Softball fraternity.
Antigua Little League Baseball is glad to recognize the achievement of Ovis Portes one of our former members, who recently signed with the Boston Red Sox. This we believe that will bring awareness to the fact, that in Antigua we need a proper baseball facility.
To move forward with the development of the facility we are kindly asking Cooperate Antigua and the public to join us in the cause.
We have already launched a few raising funds projects together with the players and their parents, to assist us whether financially or with the relevant materials needed for these types of structures.
In addition, the league will be also looking for assistance from Antigua Cooperate for the donation of building materials towards the project.
Furthermore, we are asking our overseas close friends, entities and organizations for their contribution to this worthy cause.
For further information feel free to contact: Jose George Sr. District Administrator @ 460- 5716.

Baseball? We play cricket in this country.
Wake up! We very diverse as a people now. We have a national baseball team for some time now.
🎵 Cricket, lovely Cricket 🎵 … 🏏
@Mr. Byam…just a little sport trivia for you, Baseball is the child of cricket.
As with most things which America adopted from England, the Americans turned it into a profitable business. Yes, the argument(s) can be made, that it’s(baseball) system of governance is still biased etc, but it’s light years ahead of cricket, in terms of paying the players for their skills, abilities, talents etc.
This is what R. A. Stanford was attempting to do in terms of transforming the game of cricket into a business which served the interests of the players and not just the owners.
Yes, #Baseball is in Antigua to stay. The Little League Team has already made its mark in the World of Baseball, and will continue to do so.
Baseball players have a much better opportunity, at garnering College Scholarships in America to further their education versus cricketers who go to England, Australia, India etc.
Baseball and Crivket can share the same stadiums. Imagine the boost Sport Tourism would get, to have at least one or two major league teams having their Spring Training and a game or two in Antigua.
This is positive growth for the Nation.
As long as this initiative isn’t to the detriment of our youth, and allow them to continue and advance in cricket, which is still Antigua’s #1 national sport.
