First and foremost, we hope all of you are safe and healthy during this unprecedented pandemic. Our thoughts and prayers are with those families who have suffered the loss of a loved one and our sincere gratitude remains with the heroic efforts of the first responders, essential employees and healthcare workers on the frontline.
In terms of Little League Baseball, we have been guided by Little League International headquartered in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. A brief synopsis of important announcements from Little League International is as follows:
March 12, 2020 – Little League International implements a temporary suspension of all league activities until no earlier than April 6, 2020;
March 16, 2020 – Little League International, with guidance from the CDC, strongly advised all local leagues to suspend/delay little league activities until no earlier than Monday, May 11th; and
April 30, 2020 - Little League International announced that it was cancelling its World Series and Regional tournaments for the first time in the organization’s history.
During this historic announcement, Little League International indicated that local leagues could potentially resume little league activities after May 11, 2020 if deemed safe by their individual state and local authorities.
Based upon the foregoing, at this point, and subject to the guidelines set forth in Governor Cuomo’s 4-phase reopening plan, the Harrison Little League Board has decided to leave open the possibility of having a modified and/or “late start” spring/summer season for little leaguers aged 9-12 (Majors, Eastern & International).
However, and unfortunately, the season for all little leaguers aged 8 and under (Continental and below) is officially cancelled. All families in this age group will receive a full refund. You do not need to call or email anyone to receive your refund, all paid/registered players will receive their refund automatically. Your patience in this regard is greatly appreciated.
While we are sure that this is disappointing to many of you, the Board has decided that attempting to implement safe “return to play” guidelines for the 8 and under age group would be an act of futility. The younger age groups will have difficulty maintaining “social distancing” with their teammates. Furthermore, these groups require more “hands on” coaching and instruction which, at this point, is not recommended or safe.
With respect to little leaguers aged 9-12, we will continue to follow the guidance of state and local authorities before making our final decision and will provide another update on or before June 1, 2020.
In the interim, should you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to your respective coaches and/or any member of the Harrison Little League Board.
