New Albany Little League can play baseball wherever it sees fit, but some questions have been raised to the accessibility to the planned site, especially to inner-city children who would benefit the most from Little League Baseball. I personally would prefer that New Albany Little League be played within the confines of the city of New Albany.
When the plan was first announced to split the parks, I wasn’t sure if I agreed with it or not, but now I think it will ultimately benefit the residents of our city. New Albany and Floyd County are two distinct places with citizens with different needs. The things that are needed in a city park, are not necessarily the same things that are needed in a county park.
For years the leaders have been at odds at who should pay for what. Now it looks like the leaders of Floyd County are willing to spend a little money on its parks department if only to show New Albany up.
If that’s what it takes, I guess it will have to live with it.
