A "Direct Air" Curveball for Roy-Hart Baseball Team

   The cancellation of all charter flights earlier this week by the now bankrupt Direct Air really threw a curveball into the Florida plans by the Royalton Hartland High School varsity baseball team and many parents and family members of team members.

   The team under Coach John Grzymala started raising $10,000 in funds last summer with can and bottle drives and other events to pay their own way for a spring training trip to Orlando. The Roy-Hart team was going to play in six games against teams from across the country in a tournament at the Disney World complex. Actually a group of 90 people, including the team, coaches, and parents and other family members were slated to fly on a Direct Air charter.  Many rented condos and made other arrangements with Disney World for a week - long trip from April 5th through the 12th.
