STATEMENT FROM THE EXECUTIVE BOARD OF GOFFSTOWN JUNIOR BASEBALL

Goffstown Junior Baseball commends the manager, the entire coaching staff, and the 13 players on the 2019 Goffstown Little League All Star Team. Throughout all levels of the 2019 Little League International Tournament, including the NH District One Tournament and the NH State Championship, this team exhibited the ideals of Goffstown Junior Baseball and the virtues of the Little League Baseball and Softball program; Character. Courage. Loyalty. Sportsmanship. The 2019 Goffstown Little League Little League All Star Team played every team they faced and every game the right way.

Following the team’s defeat in the New England Championship game last Saturday, there have been statements and reports on what occurred during the game. Goffstown Junior Baseball fully supports the manager and his approach to work with the on-field umpires to address a concern he had with application of the Little League rules. Following the defeat in the New England Championship game last Saturday, Goffstown Junior Baseball and NH District One Little League raised concerns with both Little League Baseball Eastern Region Headquarters in Bristol, CT and Little League International in Williamsport, PA about the application of the Little League rules during this New England Championship game. While not in agreement with the response from the Eastern Region Headquarters or the statement from Little League International on this matter, we defer to their ruling and respect their authority; as is consistent with our mission statement.

Goffstown Junior Baseball will have no further comment on this matter.

The Mission of Goffstown Junior Baseball is to implant firmly in the children of the community the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage and respect for authority, so that they may be well adjusted, stronger, happier children, and will grow to be good, decent, healthy, and trustworthy citizens.
