Little League 2020 Season News Update

Nottingham LL Families,


As we get closer to April, normally team practices would be in full swing (maybe even getting outside at least once) and preparations would be ongoing and excitement building throughout the Nottingham Little League (NLL) community for the start of season. Unfortunately this is not a normal year.  With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic increasingly affecting all facets of life, both globally and locally here in Hamilton, the impact extends to Little League baseball. 

 

Little League International has advised the suspension of the 2020 season until Monday May 11th at the earliest based on guidance from the CDC. NLL puts the health and safety of our players as well as our coaches, parents, officials and fans above all else and therefore we will align with the Little League recommendation and extend the suspension off ALL our league activities through at least this date. As a reminder this means that no NLL team activities should be held anywhere and by anyone before then and the NLL facilities are shut down and off limits to everyone until May 11th.  Any league activities scheduled through this date will not take place (whether cancelled or postponed is to be determined).  Please also note the following specific event updates:

 

-NLL Night at the Trenton Thunder (scheduled for April 25th):  This event will not take place on this date but we are still hoping to reschedule to later this season. Further information will be provided soon including to those who have already purchased tickets.

 

-NLL Golf Outing (scheduled for April 27th): This event has already been rescheduled to October 19th.  Further information will be provided at a later date.

 

NLL still expects to resume the season at some point later this spring so we urge everyone to be patient as we work through this evolving situation.  We continue to monitor guidance from the government and are actively working together with Little League and our district to pursue all possible scenarios for the 2020 season. We will share information as soon as it becomes available.

 

Little League has provided a series of FAQs to address many questions available at LittleLeague.org/Coronavirus.  If you have additional questions or concerns please feel free to reply to this email or reach out to NLL President John Cimino (his number is 6097310811). 

 

We are thinking of everyone in the NLL family during this very difficult time. The strength and resiliency of our entire community continues to amaze us and we remain optimistic as a result.  Hopefully we will be back on a baseball field soon!

 

Thanks!
