ROBINSON, TX (KXXV) -

Several local little league organizations are warning parents about a suspicious man who has been seen near the fields in recent weeks.

Robinson Little League posted on their Facebook page urging parents to know where their children are at all times. The post said a strange man was behind Jones Field asking the 9-10 year old boys who were playing what their ages were and who they were playing for.

Robinson Police said the man was described as a bald male in a tan shirt. He was last seen driving east on Moonlight Drive in Robinson in a mid-1990s green 2-door Honda.

Robinson Police said at this point no crime has occurred but they are recommending that parents pay attention to their children and know where they are when they visit locations such as a baseball park. Several officers were at the baseball park Wednesday night making sure children and their parents were safe.

Lakeview Little League had a similar situation happen a few weeks ago. Lacy-Lakeview Police told News Channel 25 that a man asked a girl how old she was and who she was playing for. Lacy-Lakeview Police have since increased their patrols in the area and have not had any other incidents reported.

Several parents reacted to the post on Facebook, expressing their concerns about the safety of their children.

Authorities said they are not sure if it is the same person, but one Robinson Little League Board Member said the board is going to do everything they can to make sure children are safe.

"We're out here all the time and that's the reason we have board members. So that board members are out here to watch for stuff like this," said Leonard Biles, a member of Robinson Little League. "We're going to pick up more security. We're going to have more board members out here. We're going to be making sure and controlling the area."

Board members are asking parents to make sure they are paying close attended to their children and if anyone sees anything out of the ordinary, let a board member know.
