The Washington C.H. Little League is looking forward to the upcoming 63rd season of the league in 2017.

Former president, John Meriweather, stepped down from that post after the 2016 season.

Tyler StClair will be the new WCH Little League president.

“Mr. Meriweather has been involved with Washington Little League for the past 41 years and has dedicated a huge amount of his time and efforts into the program,” StClair said. “Without his efforts and coordination, many of us wouldn’t have had the oppourtunity to participate in Little League baseball.

“He has helped thousands of kids progress through the system,” StClair said. “He has gone above and beyond in his attempts to make sure that Little League baseball continued in Fayette County year after year. If available, Mr. Meriweather will be throwing out the first pitch to kick off this season, and his retirement.”

Opening Day ceremonies are slated to begin at noon on Saturday, April 29 at the Little League Park on Lewis Street.

The Board of Directors for Washington Little League, which includes President Tyler StClair, Vice President Ryan Lynch, Player Agent Jason Waters, Safety Officer Wes Dawes, Secretary Steve Luebbe and Treasurer Mark Richards, would like to say thank you to John Meriweather for all of his hard work and his advice. Without his guidance and direction, none of this would be possible.

They would also like to invite and encourage everyone to come out and enjoy the Opening Day ceremonies.
