There is an URGENT need for a parent or interested person to help out the local Tyrone Legion team which plays in the George B. Kelley Federation baseball league.
The young athletes who play in this league are sixteen, seventeen and eighteen years old. The Tyrone Legion team is composed of kids who live in the Tyrone Area School District. The local entry has had a team in the Kelley Federation for many years, winning the league championship in 1992 and 1993 and finishing in second place in 1994 and 1995.
This year they need a manager and coaches who are willing to take the responsibility for the team.
When the manager and coaches from 2004 either moved or decided not to return, the positions were advertised in the Daily Herald and other newspapers and media. One person did step forward to volunteer, but it seems that once again, there is a need for a manager. There was no representative at the monthly Federation meeting on Thursday night and a phone call to the person indicated he was not going to manage the team.
Without someone stepping forward very quickly, there will be NO team for the 2005 season! Any ballplayer who lives in the Tyrone Area School District would probably not be able to play for any other Federation team. Time is short! Without someone stepping forward, the summer will be lost for most, if not all of the young men 16-18 who are planning on playing baseball.
The George B. Kelley Federation begins their season on May 22, 2005, and including makeup games caused by rainouts, the league playoffs are set to begin on July 8.
If anyone is interested, please contact George B. Kelley president Tom Stout as soon as possible at 944-8567 or e-mail For more information about the Tyrone Legion or the Kelley Federation schedule go to
