UPDATE: The Skeeters have informed KPRC 2 this recognition will not be taking place on Monday as orginally planned. Instead, this will wait until a later date, to be determined.
The Needville Little League All-Star team will be honored before the Skeeters get going on their Monday doubleheader.
The Skeeters’ first game starts at 4:05 p.m. on Monday. It’s before that game when the Needville Little League team will be honored.
A few weeks ago, the Needville little leaguers had won the Texas East title and were competing in the Waco regionals for a chance at the Little League World Series in Williamsport. However, due to a positive COVID-19 test from a member of the coaching staff, the team was sent home.
That positive test has since been disputed.
A GoFundMe has also been started to pursue legal recourse on behalf of the Needville Little Leaguers.
As for Monday, the Needville Little Leaguers will not only receive pre-game recognition, but members of the team will be throwing out the ceremonial first pitch before the Skeeters play the Albuquerque Isotopes.
