Hey did anyone happen to go out to legion park last week and watch the Senior League State tournament. What an event hosted by the Watseka Little League. I happen to attend almost every game. They did a great job represented the city of Watseka. But it is very disapointing that there was a lack of support by the local city officials. I didn't see the mayor or any alderman stopping by to check things out.
Did anyone listen to WGFA coverage of the event. Great Job!!!!
Sounds like the other teams who might i add were from mostly chicago land area loved it here. Just sad once again of the support. Why support something that might bring people to town or maybe a little revenue.

what point would have been proven if the mayor had shown up?
i mean what was he going to do? walk up to strangers and say hi, im bob the mayor! if i was a visiting parent, i would have said, well, thats nice, now can you move, im trying to watch my son play!
believe me, im in no way a city council supporter but you have to look at it from all angles.
and yes, watseka little league and the people that were there representing it did a great job. it was unfortunate the winning team's coach was ejected for challenging a bad call and the losing team's parents were very sore losers.
from what ive been told, this is a rare event and probably wont come back to watseka for another 20 years.. it was nice having the parents who did decide to stay in watseka spend money here though.
