Little League Plans Changes For ‘06 Season

While most kids are thinking about sledding and snowball fights, the Scotland County Little League Association isn’t taking the winter off.

Two new board members were elected at the organization’s fall meeting. Kelly Cooley and Mike Campbell join the current board of Richie Rader, president; Curtis Ebeling, vice president; Marie Ebeling, secretary; and Ellen Clark, treasurer; Lori Rader, Melissa Mathews, and Mike Stone members.

“We are pleased to welcome these two new members,” stated Marie Ebeling.

The board spent the remainder of the meeting discussing plans and ideas for next summer. The group is considering proposals for creating a management position to oversee the ballpark concession stands. The board also talked about the possibility of hiring a groundskeeper for the fields next summer. Board members also considered the creation of a central umpire schedule for both parks.

“We talked about the need for umpires and the plan is to schedule an umpires’ meeting, and all of those interested in umpiring will be required to attend,” Ebeling stated. “During that meeting a master schedule would be made for the fields in Scotland County.”

The board indicated this move would simplify the game process for coaches, who previously had been responsible for scheduling umpires.

The members also voted on a policy change for the board bylaws concerning members’ attendance.

A motion was made that stated “To be a Scotland County Little League board member, a member must attend 50% of all pre-scheduled meetings within a calendar year and if you do not meet those requirements then you are automatically removed from your service on the board.”

The motion was seconded and the vote carried by a 7-0 tally.

The next meeting of the Scotland County Little League Board will be January 14, 2006 at 1:00 p.m. at the Memphis Fire Station. All interested little league supporters with ideas or concerns are welcome to attend.
