' A baseball program for boys
is' the most dynamic youth,
movement of" our : times. The
boys who participate, the adults
who contribute their services
and the parents who share the
contagious enthusiasm aU get
something out of the program.
The objective of Little League
and Pony League baseball is to
provide baseball for boys under
good leadership and the whole
some atmosphere of community
participation. The real benefits
lie both in concrete results and
in intangibles which become in-,
creasingly evident as the pro
gram develops in the community-
.
Little League participation
teaches a boy much more than
just how to play the game. It
acquaints him with many at-
fair play, courtesy, and 'respect
for rules. He also comes to the
realization that adequate pre
paration is necessary to excel in
any worthwhile activity and
that success usually comes to
those who work the hardest.
There ; is no official Little
League or Pony League program
iin Hertford or Perquimans
County. However, there are
some dedicated individuals few
in number who are endeavor
ing to keep a summer baseball
program going for the thirty or
more eager boys who feel along
with these ' adults that "a dia
mond ; is a boy's, best friend."
The odds . are pretty . big most
of the time becai'.se cf lack of
parent participation, lack of
public interest," lack o.f volunteer .
help and last, but not least, lack
of funds. ' .-1 - V '. . ;
Strange as it may seem, even
a small baseball program such
as exists here requires money to
operate. Balls costl$21-a dozen,
bats cost .$27 a dozen (this
equipment needs frequent re
placing) and such other items as
catcher's gear, . bases, batting
helmets, etc., 11 add up to dol-
lars ' and cents. ' This year uni
forms which add so much to
the boys'morale ani the team's
aippfcara.nce1: were imrchased.
