Mid-Plains League expands to Liberty, Missouri
The Mid-Plains League is excited to announce an expansion team for the 2015 season. The MPL is adding the Liberty Monarchs, who will play out of Liberty, Missouri beginning this summer.
The Monarchs are run by Prodigy Baseball Academy who operates youth and high school programs in Parkville, Missouri. Founded in 2010, Prodigy is committed to maximize and develop athletes talents to reach their top potentials in the game.
The Monarchs will play 15-games at William Jewell College's Talley Baseball Stadium and 3-games at Liberty High School's baseball field. The Monarchs will be coached by Ryan Cooper, an Assistant Baseball Coach at Maple Woods Community College.
"We are very happy to expand our league footprint for the 2015 season," said Commissioner David Streeter. "Liberty, Missouri is a great fit for our league and Prodigy is a quality organization that shares our league's core values."
Liberty will join the Midwest Athletics (Belton, Mo.), Baldwin City Blues (Baldwin City, Kan.), Topeka Golden Giants (Topeka, Kan.), Topeka Senators (Topeka, Kan.), Rossville Rattlers (Rossville, Kan.), and Junction City Brigade (Junction City, Kan.)
"We are very excited to be the newest member of the Mid-Plains League," said Monarchs Owner Jesse McSpadden. "We have a great group of guys that are ready to get after it this summer."
