Middletown Little League was notified by the President of Freehold Township Little League of an attempted abduction of three young children in their main facility in Freehold this past Saturday.
The attempt occurred at approximately 12:30pm this past Saturday at Freehold LL’s Michael J. Tighe Park by their Snack Bar in a crowded park filled with parents and young children. While this attempt was several towns away, Middletown Little League reminds parents to remain vigilant of their children’s whereabouts at all times when at the baseball/softball fields.
This abduction attempt is a sobering reminder why Middletown Little League performs backgrounds checks on all its Board members, managers and coaches, and is also why we require managers and coaches to wear their ID badges at all times when at the fields.
The safety of our players and families is of the utmost importance to Middletown Little League. Thank you for all your efforts in this regard.
