After decades of having an American Legion baseball team, Minden is close to facing a summer season without one.
Coach Kirby Moore expressed concern that after all these years, the lack of a sponsor will cost the city its team.
"Without a sponsor, this team will go under," Moore said. "There's no money from the American Legion and I'd hate to see the team go under after being around for 60 years. If we don't secure a sponsor by next Wednesday or Thursday, we won't have a team."
Moore thought he had secured a sponsor, but the deal fell through.
"The sponsor we had, kind of fell to the side," he said. "In this economy it's hard to find someone who can afford to help. There's a lot of expenses. We have to travel, play in tournaments and even the cost of baseball is up. Everything adds up."
If anyone is interested in helping sponsor the American legion team, please contact Kirby Moore at (318) 464-7714.
