(Staff photo by Ann Rounsavail) By LORi CALLAWAY At a Monday night meeting of the Malakoff Youth Sports Association members decided to attend a meeting of the Malakoff City Council Oct. 26 seeking equipment for a baseball field. The decision to attend the meeting came after MYSA members discussed the availability of a playing field for local sports activities. Members of the MYSA had attended a previous meeting of the Malakoff City Council to ask councilmen to reconsider a vote to give the Henderson County YMCA lights and equipment from Steen Baseball Field. That field, according to local youth baseball leaders, has been the only field available to the Little League program. Ed Lee, president of the MYSA, told those present at the Monday meeting that the "Malakoff City Council ex- plained that they had committed them- selves to the YMCA. They had given them all lights and poles, both in storage and in use, to be used at the pr- oposed new YMCA baseball field to be located in Malakoff. "There was one condition," Lee said, "That it (the YMCA field) would be free of charge for the youth of Malakoff. They told us their hands were tied and suggested we attend a meeting of the Henderson County YMCA board the following Friday, Oct. 16, We did." ...~ Gloria Overton gave a report on what MYSA members were told at the YMCA, meeting. She said YMCA board members said they had no intention of moving the existing lights at Steen Field, only to use the ones in storage. In addition, she said, members were told that it would cost the Malakoff programs $8-$10 per hour for light service on both fields plus $I00 per week clean-up fee for use of the YMCA field. Also, she said, playing time for any local teams would have to be arranged around the men's softball league of the YMCA. "We were also told," she said, "that the main purpose of the Y was to sar- vice kids of this area. Jim Fort, a member of the MYSA, said that "according to the charges they gave us it would cost us $1620 for them to service our kids this baseball season." Fort said he arrived at that figure on an estimated four nights a week, two hours a night for nine weeks of baseball. 'They'll be hitting us for $1620 this baseball season to play in our own town," he said. "YMCA has never been a Henderson County YMCA, Just an Athens YMCA," said Dee Hoyt, another MYSA member. "We only use it as a warm-tlp for our Little Dribbler program," he said. i"l-I ully the school will have their field ready by baseball season," Fort said. Lee urged everyone to Join the Malakoff Youth Sports Association to "get behind our local program." "Without memberships and money to sustain us," he said, "we can't get the association started." He cloud the meeting by inviting everyone present and other interested Malakoff people to be at the Malakoff City Council Monday evening at 7 p.m. "Let's stand up, all of us together, for our kids," he said.
