I attended the Dixie Youth Baseball all stars tournament in Hattiesburg this past weekend.
I also attended the coach pitch league all stars tournament in Philadelphia, MS this weekend.
I have also been to baseball parks in Clinton. The facilities at all of these venues were top notch – clean and well maintained. The ball fields and grounds were well kempt if not beautiful.
I felt ashamed of Yazoo’s parks and recreation “failed-cilities.” Why can’t we have something fairly comparable (or at least neat and clean) for our youth?
Lack of money is an excuse, not a reason. These other communities find the money.
I challenge our powers that be to do a walkthrough at these out of town facilities and see what we are missing.
