With the World Series over, it’s never too early to think baseball.

At least according to the baseball enthusiasts in the Roaring Fork Valley, who are continuing a 25-year tradition of adult baseball.

The Valley Baseball League recently wrapped another season of adult-league wood-bat baseball.

And teams already are recruiting players for the 2016 summer season.

The teams in the 25-year-old baseball league include the Valley Gringos, Team Eagle, Team Carbondale, and two teams from Rifle. Games are played at Crawford Field in El Jebel.

Nate Grinzinger, the recreation coordinator for Crown Mountain Park, helps run the league and plays on the Valley Gringos squad.

Anyone interested in adult summer baseball is urged to contact Grinzinger at 970-963-6030 or
