Great Bay-The annual St.maarten Little League Association tournament, officially pitched off at the Little League Ball Park on Saturday afternoon. The tourney, which got off to a start with a parade, has a participation of some 24 teams. This tournament has been divided into several categories, including a PEE WEE league. What was notable this year was the involvement of several young female players.
During the opening ceremony, commissioner Maria B. Molanus stated that she is elated that so many teams are taking part in this year's competition. The commissioner further stated that she is very proud, especially being the commissioner in charge of sports at this time, to be apart of so many sporting activities on the island.
There is so much participation and interest in sports on the island at the moment, the commissioner noted. "It is not about what government is doing, but rather what the community is doing" the sports commissioner emphasized. She continued by saying it is not all about money, but the encouragement of participating, time and time again.
The French St. Martin Baseball and Softball Association met yesterday evening and elected to the existing board was Mr. Freddy Talien as Vice President.
