LAVERGNE, TN (WSMV) -

Kids in La Vergne just want to play ball, but the upcoming season had been in jeopardy due to concern over park usage requirements.

At issue was a city ordinance that states parks provided by the city of La Vergne must be used by a nonprofit organization, and officials say the LBSA - the La Vergne Baseball Softball Association - had failed to present any documentation to prove it is a nonprofit.

"If they're saying because they are not here they can't play, that is totally untrue. Because they're the city's fields. Those kids can go on there. They don't have to be part of it for those children to play," said La Vergne Mayor Senna Mosley.

After a meeting between city officials and LBSA representatives and coaches Wednesday, they decided the ballgames will go on, but there's a catch.

A new nonprofit will take over the league, and the games will be allowed to take place. The beginning of the summer league season will be pushed back a little bit - at least one week.
