Dear Little League® Families and Volunteers,
It’s officially spring. We should be getting out our lawn chairs, celebrating opening days, and hitting the Little League fields. We’re not.
We know you want to get out and play baseball and softball, so do we. The time spent on fields around the world is so important – where memories are made, and life lessons are learned.
Over the past few days, as we have announced our recommendation to refrain from Little League-related activities until May 11, we’ve heard from many of you. As this situation evolves, Little League International is committed to sharing the best guidance possible for all its 6,500 leagues in more than 84 countries. We are here for you.
First, it is our sincere hope that we can find ways to bring everyone back to the Little League fields this season, whether that’s later this spring, throughout the summer, or into the fall. This year’s Little League season won’t be the traditional one that we’ve held for more than 80 years, but this is about more than just a Little League season.
We are closely consulting with appropriate medical advisers and our volunteer leaders around the world, and we are committed to doing the best thing for the safety and well-being of all our players, families, volunteers, and fans. As soon as our public health authorities say it’s safe to gather again, we are committed to working with our leagues to helping them get those playing opportunities underway when appropriate.
At this time, Little League International is also working through all possible scenarios for the 2020 Little League International Tournament, including our seven Little League World Series tournaments, and tournament eligibility for our leagues and players.
The Little League experience is a rite of passage for so many children, and we know that this is frustrating and sad, especially for those players in their 12-year-old season. We sincerely hope that everyone gets an opportunity to play this year, and we’ll work hard to make that happen as soon as we can.
On behalf of Dumont Little League, we are excited to provide parents, coaches, and players with this new tool to enhance the baseball experience. Please check this website frequently, as all communications, field availability, game cancellations, and schedules will be posted, as they become available. We ask for your feedback throughout the year, in order to make improvements to the site.
