The merger of two Little League teams could cause problems for another organization's athletes.
Scott Tate, of Williamsport, brought concerns about how merging Old Lycoming Little League with Brandon Little League could affect when the Cal Ripken teams practice and play.
The Cal Ripken teams "piggy-back the use of the fields," by playing on the weekends, he said.
The league has been in the area for five years and registration for the sixth year is set to begin next month, but could be held until February until a decision is made about when they could practice.
Tate wants to see if it would be possible to continue using the field as has been done previously, but also including the use of the concession stand.
For the past five years, money has been spent on concessions, but Tate said he would like to see the money go back into the organization. "I would like to be a break-even league," he said.
The baseball field is owned by the township.
"We do have a right to comment about it," said Supervisor Janet C. Hall. "No one said anything to us."
"We can't allow Little League to lock out Cal Ripken," Supervisor John W. Eck said.
The supervisors said they will look into meeting with those involved with the merger, which will be known as Williamsport Area Little League.
About 300 children aged 8 to 12 participated in the 25 teams the Cal Ripken league offered in its most recent year.
"We're not trying to take kids away from Little League," Tate said. "We wanted to give kids another opportunity to play."
