The following is a statement issued by our Executive Board in response to the Adam Bauman Case.
We at Mt. Vernon Youth Baseball, feel this plea agreement was the best outcome for our
organization. This allows some compensation and, more importantly, allows us to put this
incident behind us and look to the future, which had already started this past season. This
experience has made us take a good look at our policies and procedures. We have applied
several safeguards and we believe these crimes will be very difficult to occur again at Mt.
Vernon Youth Baseball.
We sincerely hope that all of the work that we have done on this will prevent these kinds of
things from happening in the future to not only our group, but also other nonprofit groups in
our community and surrounding areas.
