60th anniversary logo for Encinitas Little League
Encinitas Little League started on a single baseball diamond near Moonlight Beach in 1957 with 60 players, and is now excited to be preparing to celebrate its 60th anniversary season in 2016.
ELL has been a constant in the community since 1957, practicing at local elementary schools and playing games after moving to Saxony Road in 1959, on land owned by the Ecke family.
ELL, which had 542 players in the 2015 season, is one of the oldest Little Leagues in the country. In the first of many events set to mark this milestone, ELL has unveiled a special 60th season anniversary logo which will be used throughout the 2016 season.
The logo incorporates red as ELL’s primary color, the league emblem, a home plate and as part of a continuing tradition, the poinsettia, a symbol of Encinitas and an ongoing “thank you” to the Ecke family, who made the flower famous. Registration for boys and girls aged 4-14 to participate in this special season is now open at www.ellbaseball.org.
