Salem Little League Softball and Baseball


The objective of Salem Little League is to allow the children of Salem, MA a safe place to play baseball or softball without regard to race, gender, or ability to pay participation fees.  Our goal is to have the players learn sportsmanship, respect for authority and develop friendships that last a lifetime.  

T-Mobile is stepping up for the 5th year in a row to help families who qualify for financial assistance.  Dick's  Sporting Goods also has a program.

Program Overview

Beginning on Thursday, January 11, 2024, families will be able to apply for funds to assist with paying league registration fees during this upcoming season.

We recognize that many families are facing personal and financial challenges, which has made it difficult for their children to make their way on to a Little League field. Little League and T-Mobile share the belief that every child should have the chance to experience Little League, regardless of their situation.

Prior to applications becoming available, families should identify the local league in their community by visiting then reach out to their league for more information about registration dates and fees.

Families that are approved for funds will be issued an electronic debit card which will be usable for league registration fees only.

It is our hope that the T-Mobile Little League Call Up Grant will provide much-needed support to families in your community.
