Everything is in place for another season of Moberly Midget League baseball. Now, organizers (like everyone) are hoping the COVD-19 scare subsides. MML Vice President Jim Smothers says participation is greater thanks to the return of a division…..

Board member Zach Richardson says this league can benefit area high school teams in the future….

Moberly Midget League roots go back to the Church League, which started in 1950. Smothers is seeking help in promoting the history through a Hall of Fame….

Smothers says original Hall of Fame members are Frank Richardson, Jack Brown, Peanuts Vestal, and John Bill Stone. The late Rick Andrews is also remembered.

In a statement on their website, the Moberly Midget League plans to play a full 12 game season. A start date is unclear, but the target date is as close to May 15 as possible.
