As Lee County commissioners look for ways to improve the county's finances, some parents worry their kids will be punished in the process. The County has said it may cut ties with the Park Street Recreation Complex.
That would save the county thousands of dollars but it could cost some little leaguers their favorite pastime-- baseball. At the Park Street Recreation Complex in Lee County, it's very clear. Baseball is a big thing for little leaguers.
Youth Baseball Director Steve Glover received the troubling news just a couple of days ago. Funding from Lee County leaders could be scrapped due to budget cuts.
Glover said: "The thing that is disheartening is they never came and spoke to us. They never approached us. That's a shame."
County leaders say the change would save about $60,000 but Glover says if the league doesn't get the county's support, little league baseball is in jeopardy for nearly 600 children.
He said: "If they pass this, it'll be impossible for us, because every parent would have to pay up to $300 per child and understand, that some people have two or three children in this league.
Parents say youth baseball is needed. They worry about what it's going to do to the youth of Lee County.
Lee County Administrator Alan Ours says nothing is final. It's just something commissioners are looking at. Well hear this loud and clear from the public-- balance the budget, but don't touch funding for little league baseball.
