Meantime, County Manager Tim Sutton issued a statement, saying, 'though we try hard to accommodate all requests for field allocations, we simply do not have sufficient space for all of our clubs and organizations. Because of this, smaller events routinely get bumped for larger ones and all applicants are aware of this unfortunate reality.' Sutton goes on to say, 'We are working hard to try to accommodate the little league at other locations before their scheduled event.'
