Less than a year ago, Westport Little League made huge news with the All-Stars’ run to the national championship game.
Today, the baseball news is less good. Jeff White, chairman of Westport Baseball & Softball, issued this statement tonight:
Westport Baseball & Softball has a long and successful history of serving our community. We are proud of what our children have accomplished over the years, and the Board of Directors takes all aspects of our work seriously.
Since learning of the situation, and in order to protect Westport Baseball & Softball for the long term, we have made several improvements, including new financial procedures and improved ways to review and approve reimbursements and expenditures.
Westport Baseball & Softball will continue to deliver all of the popular, broad-based programs that we always have. With the weather starting to break and a new season on the horizon, we look forward to another fun, productive, successful year for our more than 1200 children.
