Registration for Northeast Los Angeles Little League (NELA) is opening soon, and the 2014 spring season is sure to be a hit!
Below you’ll learn more about NELA Little league, how to register your kids, and/or how to become a sponsor for the organization.
About NELA Little League
NELA is a non-profit organization, managed entirely by volunteers, which sets out to engrain L.A.’s youth with the positive values one can learn by playing competitive baseball, such as: teamwork, perseverance, loyalty, and positive sportsmanship. NELA’s mission is praised and echoed by local superstar athletes. In fact, Yasiel Puig of the Los Angeles Dodgers often practices with NELA players; he even brought over 100 participants to tour and play at the Dodger Stadium!
The NELA Experience
Nestled in Bishop Canyon (with a beautiful view of the Dodger Stadium), NELA has maintained and provided quality baseball diamonds for the youth in Echo Park and neighboring communities for decades. And participants aren’t the only beneficiaries to NELA’s facilities. Adjacent to NELA’s baseball diamonds are picnic areas, with built in barbeque grills, where friends and family can congregate to cheer on their future baseball stars. Of course, for the more enthusiastic fans, bleachers are available and well within yelling range to the opposing teams’ dugout, as well as the umpire’s box (for that inevitable bad call).
So sign up your kids with NELA, and come out to indulge in America’s favorite pastime. Peanuts and face-paints are optional.
*Note: online applicants still need to appear in-person during the registration days to finish the process.

Over 500 people per week frequent NELA’s facilities for practices or baseball games. Local businesses can support NELA’s mission by purchasing an advertising banner for $250. The banner will state as follows: “[Insert business], proud sponsor of Northeast Los Angeles Little League.” Advertising banners will be hung at NELA’s facilities.
Being a non-profit, the little league also provides a tax ID number for anyone interested.
