Allentown's East Side Senior Little League Needs Pitcher's Mound
They were scheduled to play on Saturday, but there's no pitcher's mound at the regulation baseball field along Martin Luther King Highway.
Very nice dugouts, but no pitcher's mound.
In addition to being unable to keep the firefighters properly equipped, Fed Ed decided that there's no money for a pitcher's mound.
The kids from East Side have to schlepon over to Alton Park for agame and hope noone else was there first.
Organized sports are a good way to keep kids from straying. But Fed Ed makes it harder for Allentown's youth to do the right thing.
