2020 is a new season for Renton Little League, and will bring changes to the nonprofit.

Renton Little League, under Little League International serving youth 5 to 16 years old, will celebrate another season of the best youth baseball and softball the northwest has to offer, according to a Renton Little League press release.

This fall, the Renton youth baseball and softball community restructured the league’s Board of Directors and wrote a new league constitution with a focus on building upon the strong foundation of youth sports in the area and emphasizing fun, accessibility and competition. There’s also new leadership for the league.

“I am excited for the beginning of the 2020 season. We are looking forward to providing activities that develop the young men and women who participate in Renton Little League, establishing a base for them to become strong members of our community,” Renton Little League President John Hentges stated in the press release.

In 2020 Renton Little League will be working hard to expand relationships within the business district and city hall and will be announcing community events that will be family fun for all and build public awareness for the league, according to the release.

The league will also offer scholarships to families that need assistance, the press release states. Renton Little League’s mission is to teach the rules and strategies of the game and to create an environment for the youth of our community in which they learn the ideals of sportsmanship, loyalty, courage and respect and have a great time doing it.

Registration for Renton Little League’s 2020 Season is open through Feb. 1, 2020 at Those interested in volunteering as a coach, umpire or board member in 2020 are asked to email
