Newts, May agree to two-year deal
NEW CARLISLE- After a period of intense negotiations, Kevin May is staying put. May agreed
to a two-year deal with the Newts on Wednesday that contains a player option for a third year. May was primarily used as a leadoff hitter in 2010, hitting .476 with 13 home runs, 33 RBIs, and 41 runs in 20 games with the Newts. This will be the first offseason in which May will not be on the move. He broke into the league with Cornhole in 2007. After the franchise folded, May then spent a season with the Newts in 2008. In 2009, he joined Emery's Army for their inaugural season. A falling out with ownership led him back to the Newts prior to the 2010 season. This stop in New Carlisle will be the last for the journeyman outfielder. May intends on finishing his career with the Newts, a franchise he co-founded in 2001 as a Snow Football League team. Over the last few years, the Newts front office has placed a high priority on bringing back and keeping the founders of the team within the organization. May and the Newts have already begun preliminary talks on his role with the team after his playing career ends. May is expected to take a front office or broadcasting position with the organization upon his retirement.
