MITCHELL, S.D.–Mitchell’s Post 18 baseball team will resume operations immediately following a Wednesday morning Mitchell Baseball Association Board meeting.

Jackley added that no one has been charged as of yet.

The Mitchell Post 18 baseball season was suspended last month following allegations of player misconduct. No other details have been made public.
