Spring is here at New Melle Sports and Rec and with that, an influx of softball and baseball teams will be headed to New Melle. March starts tournament season on the weekends, where NMSR will be full of softball teams. Practices also begin for our rec teams, with games starting in April. NMSR is still looking for concession staff and managers, grounds crew, and umpires. If you or someone you know is interested, please go to and click on the Now Hiring link.
