*(K.I.D.S. International Diamond Sports is a self supported, non-profit
organization that promotes baseball and softball programs geared toward the
rudiments of Teamwork, Good Sportsmanship and Fair Play.  The program not only
provides athletic and physical fitness but an opportunity to promote team
spirit and community pride.  The cost of running a program like this one can be
expensive.  It is our goal to keep registration costs as low as possible so
that financial difficulties are not a burden for our teams.)  

Last year in 1999, we hosted only the 12 Under division.  We started with only
20 teams and quickly filled to 35 teams in only one division.  This year we are
limited to field space availability.  We hope to have 80 teams in the baseball
divisions and 60 teams in the softball divisions this year.  As you can see the
amount of teams and people we expect this year is overwhelming.  Approximately
140 teams, 30 fields, and 3600 people will come together for the same reasons
and cause.  YOU HAVE TO LOVE THAT!!
