The Laurinburg Optimist Club is a non-profit corporation, which emphasizes youth baseball. The club is not connected with any government agency. There are no fees to participate in the Laurinburg Optimist Baseball/Softball Program.
More than 375 youth participated in the program last year.
“This year we hope to see even more kids out at the park,” said C Scott Cole. “The Optimist program takes immense pride in providing quality baseball/softball experience for its kids, with good coaching and sportsmanship at its foundation. Multiple Major League and Minor League baseball players have come through the Laurinburg Optimist program. The program has won multiple state and regional championships. So, if you have a child 5-12 years old, we hope you call Optimist Park home this spring.”
