The Reds Rookie Success League will be returning to Clermont County next year, according to Batavia Township administrator Rex Parsons.
Parsons said he met with Reds Community Fund officials and began plans to bring the Reds Rookie Success League back to the ball fields at the community center next June.
Parsons made the announcement about the league’s return during trustees’ Sept. 4 board meeting.
“It was a fun time,” Parsons said about the league this year. “We are looking forward to it for 2013.”
Parsons said they had a great group of children participate in the character-building baseball camp this year, which ran from June 11-July 3.
Children were transported from various locations in Clermont County to the community center on Mondays and Tuesdays and learned baseball skills while also learning about respect, integrity, determination and much more.
A slew of volunteers from the Clermont County area, including Batavia Township Trustees, University of Cincinnati Clermont College baseball players as well as Reds Community Fund staff ran the camp this year.
Sponsors from Clermont County businesses and organizations also were involved donating time, food and money to help make the event a success.
Batavia Township Community Center was the first Clermont County site of the Reds Rookie Success League. The league was moved from Warren County to Clermont County in 2012.
Parsons said they are looking to begin the 2013 league June 10, but want to make sure area schools will be out before then.
