Children living in the Bridge City, Orangefield, West Orange-Cove and parts of Little Cypress-Mauriceville school districts are eligible to play in the league. Girls living in Vidor ISD are also eligible to play softball.

The BC Little League program is for boys and girls ages 4-16. Their complex has five fields and two concession stands for the public’s enjoyment. A sixth field is under development.

A birth certificate and three proofs of residency will be required to register. Fees are $65 for the first child, $20 for each of the next two children in the same household and no charge for the fourth child in the same family. Hardships due to Hurricane Ike can be discussed with Brigg Patterson, league president. Plans for payment are available. BCLL doesn’t want any child kept from playing because of financial concerns. 

All League information, volunteer forms and coaching applications are available online at Please fill out the paperwork and turn in at registration. Further information can be obtained by calling Brigg Patterson at 409- 697-1440.

BCLL suffered intense damage from Hurricane Ike. Fences are down, concession stands ruined, all field equipment lost, etc. In spite of that, the board feels the children deserve to play ball, so, they guarantee the league will be ready to start by the end of March.
This may be the ‘season to remember.’ Ask at registration what you can do to help. Step up and help the league be the best in Southeast Texas.
