A Message from the Board

Little League International has revised their recommendation on the temporary suspension of league activities. The new date for additional assessment is May 11. Their decision is based upon information available from the CDC and other health entities.
     Your questions – like ours – are probably … what’s next? Will we have Little League this year? Will this new date be changed again? What will happen to my registration and/ or sponsor fee?
     As we come to grips with these changes and the situation the coronavirus is creating in our community, your Board is holding onto the idea of starting our season – just a little later than usual! We are waiting for more information from the District and Little League International and believe there WILL be Little League games at Redbud this year. We may have to significantly compress the schedule but we want to play our games! We want to serve you all tri-tip sandwiches and super nachos and popcorn and peanuts! We want to play in those annual tournaments!
     We’ve discussed a shorter season or even something along the lines of a “Fall Ball” season. We are however, right now, in a holding pattern – waiting for guidance from LLI.
     We are asking for your patience while we sort out the details. All of your uniforms are on hand ready to be distributed. We are ready to issue schedules with new dates – as soon as we get the go-ahead. We hope refunds of fees will not be necessary – rather games will be played as usual! Or at the very least, credited for next season.
     We will keep you posted as we get more information. Updates will be made on our website and the Facebook Fan page. General information and updates about the suspension are also available at littleleague.org/coronavirus.
     Thanks for your patience and understanding.  We’ll be in touch!
