DECATUR, IL. (WAND-TV) -- After the Decatur Commodores played minor league baseball for 64 years, baseball is trying to make a strong return to the Decatur area.

Not in the form of minor league baseball, but in the form of an adult baseball league. 

With some strong goals in mind, the league is on the rise. However, they are still in search of new members to join the league. Currently with three teams in the league, President Tim Cripe hopes to not only add a fourth and fifth team, but also hopes to have enough players interested to form a single team that will compete in travel baseball on Saturdays. 

If you or someone you know is interested in joining the league, you can sign up at either of the two links below. Games as of now are played on Sundays and practices happen during the week and vary by team.
