League Update

Los Gatos Little League Families,

 

I hope this message finds you all healthy. We have not provided an update in some time, and with the 2020 Little League World Series being canceled, we thought it would be good to share the latest news on a local level.

 

While this cancelation is disappointing, Little League International is still encouraging local leagues and districts to resume their current seasons once respective states issue guidelines that allow for youth baseball.

 

Local Outlook & Planning

 

Los Gatos Little League is working with representatives from District 12, Los Gatos Union School District, the Town of Los Gatos, and Santa Clara County on recommendations for resuming the 2020 season. Currently, all Los Gatos fields are closed. We will not resume any baseball play until the Town and School District give the green light to use the fields. 

 

Recent planning activities include:

  • May 4, 2020 District 12 League Presidents held a meeting and the consensus from local leagues is a desire to return to baseball if possible.  
  • May 6, 2020 - LGLL Board of Directors met to discuss ideas for a safe return to baseball when the restrictions are lifted, but the unknowns are many. We are doing our best to anticipate what could be required to resume play, so that we are well-prepared when the time comes. We all miss baseball, as I’m sure your families do too! 
  • Manager/Player Inquiry - The Board realizes everyone has their own unique situation and that some may not be able to participate if the season resumes. We have asked Managers to reach out to their respective teams and gauge interest in returning to play; this is simply a proactive step on our part to better understand interest for our optimistic planning efforts. We hope to resume, but simply don’t know.

League Finances

 

We must regretfully inform everyone that LGLL is not able to provide refunds for the 2020 season. Our expenses are front-end loaded annually, so registration fees are spent on a variety of expenses related to the season. We are working with vendors and carefully managing our existing funds to insure the league remains financially solvent so we can resume activities in the future. Refunding registration fees would simply bankrupt LGLL.

 

Next Steps

 

We’ll continue to provide updates as they become available and truly appreciate your patience during this uncertain time. In the meantime, head outside and have fun playing catch with your child as much as you can!
