DLL Parents, Players, Sponsors, Volunteers: with the recent updates from SRVUSD, Contra Costa County, and Little League International, it’s clear that we will not be back on the fields any time soon. Hopefully you are all using this time to stay healthy, keep up with work and our new distance learning arrangements, and getting outside for some exercise. For those missing baseball like me, Little League has been publishing digital pep talks and backyard tips. Both are worth a look.
Our board met yesterday to assess where we are. Unfortunately we don’t have any more information or answers yet on timing or what considerations would have to be made to keep our players, umpires, and spectators safe. However, we intend to do whatever we can to continue our 2020 regular season as soon as possible. We have options to extend play through July using our existing field reservations. We are also talking about structuring a Fall season, perhaps with our neighboring little leagues in Danville or San Ramon. Little League has yet to make a decision about how to proceed with the all star tournament, so that could factor into our approach as well.
Regardless of how we proceed, I'll make sure that we communicate and invite input on the options being considered. Similarly, we will be transparent with our finances. Our league Treasurer is preparing a statement of costs already incurred as we started up the season, (e.g., LLB fees, insurance, field rentals, player training, equipment, and uniforms). That will help down the line as we weigh our options for how to proceed.
Thanks again for your support. Hopefully we get back on the fields soon. Questions to
