Babe Ruth baseball has been played in Manchester for many, many years but an announcement recently was made that league would cease to exist this spring.
The new Manchester Youth Baseball Association has expanded its age groups to include 13-16-year-old players.
League president Dale Cooper says that if interest is high enough, a league for 16-24-year-old players could be offered.
Cooper stressed that all age divisions are considered recreation league.
“Anyone who wants to play can play and compete in our league,” said Cooper.
Anyone wishing to sign up for older ages can do so by calling Cooper at 931-212-8657 or by picking up a form at CNC Building Supply at 44 Interstate Drive. (Thanks Derek Harryman-Manchester Times)

Motlow (14-13) is the defending tournament champion and has played in the past three tournament championship games. The Bucks can make it four straight title games if they can beat top-seed Columbia State (25-2) on Friday in the semifinals. Motlow is the fourth seed and will tip off against Columbia State, the nation’s third-ranked team, Friday at 1 p.m. central.
Motlow sealed its win by making clutch free throws in the final minutes, something the Bucks have struggled with in recent games. Motlow hit 21-30 free throws, with DeQuan Miller leading the way by making 13 of his 16 attempts. The freshman from Charleston, WV, who is being heavily recruited by multiple Division I universities, led the Bucks with 25 points and six assists.
However, it was sophomore Trey James who put the Bucks on his back in the second half after Cleveland closed the gap to one point. James, who led the conference in rebounding, finished with 22 points and 15 rebounds.
Miller was named to the TCCAA all-conference first team, while James and Kytrel Williams were named to the all-conference second team. Columbia State’s T.J. Dunans was named the TCCAA Player of the Year and Columbia coach Brian Collins was named the Coach of the Year.
Motlow Bucks baseball swept the Martin Methodist JV 8-1, 10-0 on Wednesday afternoon at Driver Complex. Bucks now 16-8 overall, 3-3 in TCCAA.
