The sound of baseball has been filling the air at the Jackson Parish Recreation Department Sports Complex for the past several weeks as youth from the ages of 3-13 have been competing in Dixie Youth and Little League competition.
There has also been another group that has been playing, not to see who wins or loses, but simply for the enjoyment that being together in fellowship brings. Introducing the Legacy League, designed to give youth with physical, developmental or cognitive disabilities the opportunity to play baseball in a fun filled environment under volunteer assistance.
Each Monday in May, the thirteen league members that are divided into two teams sponsored by Magee Farms and Jonesboro State Bank, have had the opportunity to play. One final game is scheduled for May 29th at 6:00pm on Field 3 of the Sports Complex, located at 5254 Hwy 4 East. All are invited to come and show your support.
Assistance in helping the youth play and bringing tremendous joy to the participants are groups from Full Gospel Temple, Hodge United Pentecostal Youth, and the Weston High School Baseball team. The JPRD, as well as, friends and family of the youth greatly appreciate you for your time and effort.

Hi, My name is Chenille Gil. I’m Alice Gil’s mother. Her name was incorrect in the article. Thank you for writing about Legacy League. We enjoy watching them each year and Alice loves to play. We are very grateful for this opportunity for all of these children to get together and play ball.
Also the last game was Monday May 22. They have cancelled the one that was scheduled for memorial day.
