The standard registration period for the 2015 Eagle Creek Little League baseball/softball/T-ball season is over, but there still might be a chance to sign up. The catch? Late fees.

>>> You can register online for T-ball through April 1, until all roster spots are filled. Cost: $110 (plus credit card fees). Register by clicking here.
>>> Roster spots in some baseball and softball divisions are still open. Cost: $135 (plus credit card fees). Send us an e-mail, and we'll notify you if any spots are still available in your age division.

Those of you who are already signed up should be hearing from a manager sometime during March. Opening day is April 13 for the major baseball division and April 18 for most other divisions.

Attention: Parents

>>> Dr. James Andrews is the world's foremost authority on pitching-related injuries. He has performed surgery to prolong the careers of many of today's top major-league pitchers.
   Tommy John surgery is a procedure in which the damaged ulnar collateral ligament in the elbow is replaced with another tendon on the body, such as from the forearm or hamstring. It is the most common surgery Andrews performs on young pitchers.
   In a 2012 story, he noted that while he once performed three or four Tommy John surgeries a year on high school athletes, that number had grown to three or four per week.
   Read his message for all Little League parents about overuse injuries.
