Far more time than anyone in the Hackett Little League can remember, the scoreboard at the ballfield never worked. That’s why it was so exciting, and very appreciated when Farmers Bank donated a new one.
The sign arrived June 18, and is ready for baseball/softball season. Nick Holbert, the Baseball Commissioner, said building the teams is a work in progress.
There are two leagues, the Suburban League and the River Valley League. The Suburban League includes t-ball players from Lavaca, Hackett, Mansfield and Hartford. The River Valley League’s players are ages 8-15 and are from Charleston, Booneville, Hackett, County Line, Paris, Magazine, Mansfield and Lavaca.
