No Baseball After Dark

The director of Parks and Recreation says when the park was built there was an agreement to have no lights in the baseball field, but since then the Little League program has grown and there's not enough daylight for all the games or teams to practice.

The Little League coaches say they need lights in order to meet the growing demand.

Jack Rivers, Little League coach, said, "The park is growing leaps and bounds. We're having to cap our enrollment for our kids, and that's turning them away. Some of them are going to the city some of them are not playing ball at all."

The parents and coaches say lights would allow the baseball program to grow including a fall program, tournaments, and more kids could play.

The Little League will take the first step to getting their fields lit by meeting with the board of commissioners Tuesday.
