(WPXI-TV) MERCER COUNTY, Pa. — Members of one church were told they weren’t allowed to participate in a Mercer County softball league because of their beliefs.

Players from Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints church in Slippery Rock said they were told they couldn’t participate in the Grove City Area Church softball league because they’re Mormon.

The Grove City Area Church league is made up of 11 teams. Players said when they received word that Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints may participate, three of the teams refused to play if they were accepted.
