Yesterday the criteria of fielding a team for the winter league suddenly changed.

From SE Zone Headquarters:

"Since the league is in the middle of the school year, we will be setting all age groups based on grade rather than age. The groupings will be as follows:12th Grade and Under Boys/Girls; 10th Grade and Under Boys/Girls; 8th Grade and Under Co-ed; 6th Grade and Under Co-ed."

- Adam Gaffey 

Why the change when the winter & summer league has always been by age? Teams have already registered for the season ergo their rosters are set for the winter schedule based on the Zones previous criteria


Pinto Bean Gumbo

1 2/3 cups dry pinto beans
7 cups water
1 large onion, chopped
1/2 cup diced salt pork
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 bay leaf
2 cups okra, sliced (can use frozen okra)
1 (16 oz. can) diced tomatoes
1 (16 oz. can) whole kernel corn, drained or 1 box frozen corn
2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon bottled hot pepper sauce 
Rinse beans.  In a 5-quart dutch oven or kettle combine beans and the water.  Bring to boiling.  Reduce heat; cover and simmer 2 minutes.  Remove from heat.  Cover and let stand 1 hour. (Or, soak beans in the water overnight in a covered pan) Do not drain.
Add onion, salt pork, the 1/2 teaspoon salt, and the bay leaf to the beans and liquid.  Bring to boiling.  Reduce heat; cover and simmer 2 to 2 1/2 hours or till beans are tender.  Add sliced okra, undrained tomatoes, drained corn, worcestershire sauce, the 1 teaspoon salt, sugar, thyme, and bottled hot pepper sauce.  Simmer the mixture 30 minutes or till okra is tender.  Remove bay leaf before serving.  Makes 10 servings.
You can also make this in the crockpot using about three cans Lucks Pinto Beans, leave out the salt pork, and add the other ingredients and cook 4 hrs. on high. Enjoy!
