ELY, Nev. - (04/10/06) – Credit a save for GreaterNevada CU. The Carson City-based credit union came up with a $2,500donation to help the local White Pine American Little League payadditional costs mandated by new safety rules. The little leaguewas forced to replace all of its bats and bases to comply with newsafety rules mandated by Little League International. Therulemaking authority for the nation’s little leagues requiredthat softer bats be used because the old aluminum bats hit ballstoo hard; and breakaway bases that give ground when a player slidestoo hard or the wrong way into them. The league is also faced withadditional other additional costs for first aid kits, charter feesand concessions stands.
