News Article - January 31, 2017




Northeast Recreation Baseball Board was just informed the Tri County League Board will not be able to approve Northeast to play Pee Wee, 9-10, or Little League, 11-12, in their League. NE Recreation Baseball Commissioner and Kid Pitch Director were led to believe this was a formality process by our initial contact. (Later to find out that the Tri County Board had an issue with this initial contact.) At the time of this post we don't know the exact reason from the Tri County Board denial. We appreciate the Tri County Board for their time and consideration. Maybe, we can work through these issues in the future to bring kid pitch back to our NE community like our families requested. 


If, you have submitted a form for Pee Wee, 9-10, or Little League, 11-12, refund checks will be issued by this Friday for those we have cashed. If, we haven't cashed then it will be mailed back to you. MYBA in Meridian, MS, has registration on Friday, February 10th 5-7pm and Saturday, February 11th 10am-12pm at Phil Hardin.  We apologize for any inconvenience this caused. We put tons of work into trying to offer this kid pitch starting in November 2016 and we are very surprised and disappointed with this news.
