However, Roger Jeffers, parks director, said if his department takes control of the park, there would not be time to have a summer league. He also said for the parks department to take over operation of the park, it would have to be given full control of the entire facility which includes a shelter house, playground, basketball courts and tennis courts which have fallen in disrepair.
Haller said he had around 30 teams during the spring, summer and fall leagues play at Georgetown, along with numerous weekend tournaments he hosted. He said he has received phone calls from players upset that the park has closed. He also said the town is no longer reserving the field for practice, and has not touched the dirt infield.
“They are just letting the park go to pot down there. It looks terrible,” Haller said.
