what does it mean to have a appositive in a sentance?


Why does “the Rock City Little League” require commas on either side?

See example:

Every year the Rock City Little League hosts an awards banquet, to recognize the outstanding youth in our little league program.

Grammarly often misreads appositives, especially if the subject is three or more words long -- "Rock Island Little League" -- and the sentence has (correctly or not) what appears to be a lengthy introductory phrase.


My rule of thumb, if I can't figure out why the program said something, look for other issues that might confuse the AI. (And, of course, use this forum.)
