Covid 19 (Coronavirus) update

UpdatedTuesday April 7, 2020 byJake Hughes .

Hello EMLL Families!

Hopefully, everyone is staying healthy during these trying times. The board at EMLL has been trying our very best to remain positive that we can some sort of baseball this season. I wanted to share our most current plan with everyone because We've started to get some questions about the status of the season.

We are following direction and guidance from Little League of America, while also taking into account situations that are unique to our area and communities. Right now, all baseball and Softball activities have been put on hold until May 11th. Barring any other delays, our season will look like this:

 

Monday, May 11, 2020… Travel Team Tryouts at EMLL fields

Tuesday, May 12, 2020… Travel Team Tryouts continue at EMLL fields

 

Friday, May 15, 2020… Regular Season registration closes

Friday, May 15, 2020… Regular Season Coaches Meeting

Saturday, May 16, 2020…Regular Season tryouts at EMLL fields

Sunday, May 17, 2020…Draft for Regular Season at Fire Station #13

 

Saturday, June 13, 2020… Opening Day Spring Baseball

 

Friday, August 14, 2020… Regular Season ends (9 weeks; 16 games)

Saturday, August 15, 2020…No baseball games (Skills Competition Day)

Week of August 17-22, 2020… Regular Season Preliminary Tournament Games

Tuesday, August 25, 2020… EMLL Picnic

Wednesday, Thursday, August 26, 27, 2020… Regular Season Semi-Final Tournament Games

Saturday, August 29, 2020… Regular Season Championship Games

 

At this point, the delays due to the virus have caused us to cancel the fall baseball for the 2020 season.

 

Obviously, the situation is fluid and may still need to be modified if more delays are sent our way either on the local or national level. We will do our best to keep everyone informed as things change. 

 

Just a reminder, the fields are not open for use while we are under the stay at home from our governor so please fight the urge to play there (even though we completely understand and share your desire)   

 

Everyone, please stay safe and healthy and We'll see you at the field later this year!

 

Jake Hughes- President EMLL
