After several summers of fielding an entry in the Vermont American Legion baseball league, the S. D. Ireland team will bow out this season.
“Unfortunately there was a lack of interest and commitment (by potential players),” said long time coach Jim Neidlinger in an e-mail to the Observer.
In the past, the S.D. Ireland-sponsored team fielded players from Champlain Valley Union High, Rice Memorial High and Mount Mansfield Union, depending on their residence towns.
Players might catch on with either South Burlington or Essex legion teams.
