With Norwood not fielding a team in the Crow River Valley League this year, the following action was taken at a special league meeting Wed., May 4:
• Norwood was granted a leave of absence, remaining an inactive league member, with the issue to be revisited at the fall meeting. (The Norwood park is available to use for make-up games, etc.)
• Each team is granted one forfeit win vs. Norwood, which is applied to the league standings immediately. This leaves the North and West division teams with an 18-game schedule, while the other Central teams have 17 games. Because of that, the tiebreaker process for ties across divisions was modified to use a runs-per-game calculation rather than total runs to allow for a difference in number of games played.
In other business, the league approved buying an ad in the program for a district Legion baseball tournament hosted by Cologne and Norwood.
