Registration for the Plainville Athletic League’s spring recreational softball and baseball season is open until Feb. 16, but participants should sign up by Feb. 2 to avoid late fees. The league’s policy is to never turn away a child due to a family’s inability to pay; requests for financial assistance can be directed to Darrin Sprague, the league’s secretary, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
