Wabash Little League expands to Denver area
By Joseph Slacian
 
The Wabash Little League is expanding this year. Youngsters that live in the North Miami School District will now be eligible to play in the Wabash Little League.
 
The youngsters have been able to play in the local league in past years, Little League President Bryan Dillon noted. However, the league was required to obtain a waiver to play. In addition, the youngsters were unable to play in post-season All-Star tourneys.
 
Under Little League International guidelines, players are eligible to play in a local league “as long as they live within our boundaries or they attend a school within our boundaries,” Dillon continued.
