For the past three decades, Andy Young knew exactly where he’d be from mid-April to mid-July.

Spending nearly every evening at the Glenwood ball fields coordinating leagues, selling concessions, settling disputes, and even umpiring games, Young was the consummate youth baseball and softball “commissioner” in Glenwood.

Young announced earlier this year he would not be returning to run the youth league he’s been a part of since the mid-1980s.
