Smokey Bear helped kick off Opening Ceremonies last Saturday, greeting the players and coaches along with the BLM firefighters who handed out bags and water bottles to all the players.

This year White Pine Little League has 320 players that will play in four different divisions, T-Ball, Farm, Minor and Major, and three different divisions of softball (Farm, Major and Junior).

This year we are going to expand our playing venues where t-ball games will be played in Lund, McGill and Ely. 

We will be hosting a raffle on June 1 where the first place winner (first ticket pulled) will get the choice of either a full processed pig or a 6.5 creedmore hunting rifle. Second ticket drawn will then receive what the first place winner passed on. Third place winner or third ticket drawn will receive a camp chef grill and for the fourth place

Thanks to the community for coming out and supporting our local youth. Without your support a highly successful WPLL program wouldn’t be possible.
