to incorrect information provided to the Empire, some details surrounding the origin of Melvin Park mentioned in Sunday's Gastineau Channel Little League opening day article were erroneous. It was Marion Hobbs, Melvin Hobbs' brother, who was too young to play Little League at the time of Melvin's death. After Melvin died, the Elks Club allowed Marion to play on its team.
