Albany -- The Albany Parks and Recreation Department is investigating a dispute that affects 65 little league player's baseball season.

On April 10th a parent made an inappropriate comment during a game between Flint River and Albany National.

That parent was permanently suspended from attending any Albany National games, but was still able to attend Flint River games.

Flint River's says its because of this decision, Albany National refused to play Flint River for the rest of the season compromising their standing in the league.

"If I wanted to damage someone's league, I would refuse to play the team so they wouldn't get their 12 games. I'm not saying that is the case, but there are a lot of different under tones including racial that has caused this decision to be made," said President of PRIDE Youth Sports, Patrick Wise.

The Albany Parks of Recreation will hold another hearing on Albany National's decision Monday at 3 P.M. We will be speaking to the coach for Albany National Sunday.
