NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Hundreds of Little League players will take the field again in Orange County after a suspension was lifted, even as the reasons behind the dispute remain unclear.

The Orange County Register reports (https://bit.ly/1eKwqDr ) the suspension of the Newport Beach Little League ended at 12:01 a.m. Monday.

Tamara Alexander, the district administrator who oversees leagues in the area, says the league directors have taken the “necessary steps” to remain compliant with program rules. She did not elaborate.

The president of the Newport Beach organization, Gary Borquez, said he believes the suspension may have come because 14 of the 24 members of the board were coaches and managers. No more than half can be managers or coaches under league rules.

The league includes about 70 teams for children ages 5 to 13.
