As you are aware, the Governor has implemented a process in which gatherings are limited but will be slightly expanded as we move into the later phases of that process. There is hope and then there is reality. This will greatly restrict what Middletown Little League can do going forward. Today we regretfully announce that the Spring 2020 season is cancelled.
At this time we are hoping we will be able to open registration for Fall Ball by late July or early August. If we are able to do so, it will be a quick registration period so that we can get the uniforms, schedule, and umpires lined up. There may also be an opportunity for MLL to do an informal “sand lot” series during the summer which, if we are permitted, we will announce when the time comes. We do not anticipate a fee for that series.
As to registration fees, we have two options available at this time. We can issue you a refund minus the $3.50 processing fee or you can have it rolled into the next season. Please email and let us know which option you prefer.
In the meantime, MLL is looking to work on much needed maintenance on our playing fields.
This decision was not made lightly and we held out as long as we reasonably could. Many emails were exchanged within District 2 in gauging how to move forward. Our recent D2 Zoom meeting is where we felt we no longer have a choice in holding even a late spring season. We also have a responsibility to our families and sponsors.
If you have any questions please feel free to reach out. Someone from the MLL Board will get back to you as soon as possible.
On behalf of the Middletown Little League Board of Directors, we continue to wish you all safety and good health.
