Burke says more baseball teams are needed

Dear Editor:

While visiting relatives in Mountain City, I was told by my nephew that the middle school would not sponsor but one baseball team. After questioning my sister, she confirmed that only a varsity team was allowed to participate in baseball. I can’t believe that the school system or parents would not volunteer and fund another team especially when there are kids lined up to play. Other schools do, what’s up Johnson County? Encourage your children to be active and volunteer to form/fund a team.
