The Inner-City Youth League started their season Sunday at the C.K. Newsome Center in Evansville.

The League is sponsored by local non-profits 'BOSS INC.' and 'Mothers Holdin' It Down."

The League is free for kids between kindergarten and eighth grade.

Nearly 227 kids are in the program which is divided into 13 different teams.

"It's just we're trying to reach these kids and keep them out the streets," says John Holland, League Referee. "Give them something to do instead of doing that street activity that's been going on out here."

The League had to take a year off because of the pandemic.

The season opener featured food trucks donating 30 percent of sales to keep the group going.

Just another day in paradise; afternoon highs again topped out in the mid to low 70s across the Tri-State under a mix of sun and clouds. If you have plans out and about this evening, make sure to grab a jacket before you head out - after seeing temperatures near 64° around dinnertime, the mercury will dip to 57° by 10 o'clock before falling all the way back down into the mid to upper 40s early Wednesday morning. Sure, tomorrow morning's lows of 47° will represent our mildest start to a day since this past Friday, but it's still going to make for a cool start to our midweek nonetheless. The combination of sunshine and southerly winds however, will help drive temperatures back into the low 70s by lunchtime - if you're planning on lunching outside Wednesday, make sure not to do so in the shade. Wind gusts near 15 mph at times during our lunch hour will make for a chilly brown bag lunch outdoors.
