March 17th Update

The health and safety of our players & their families is our number one concern at Mark West Little League.   With the rapidly changing COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic we are exercising an abundance of caution and will be postponing all league activities until May 11th based on the recent recommendations from Little League International.   The Board of Directors will be working on a plan for our return with a modified game schedule.  We will be working to enhance the safety levels while at the fields by providing antibacterial soap at the wash station & hand sanitzer stations throughout the fields.  

 

As we continue to work through these guidelines in response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic we will all want to make this year is the best year ever for our kids when they return to the baseball fields.   Right now, let's take advantage of the opportunity we have with our families and loved ones at home.  There's no better time than right now to spend time with our kids and play catch with them.  

 

Thank you

Dear Little League Volunteer,

This is much bigger than Little League®.

The COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic is rapidly changing the way that we, as global citizens, think, act, gather, learn, and live our daily lives. And, yes, that also means how we play Little League.

With the most recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Little League International Board of Directors and staff is now strongly advising all its local Little League programs to suspend/delay their Little League seasons through no earlier than Monday, May 11. We implore you to follow this recommendation and suspend all Little League activities through no earlier than May 11.

We recognize that this is the heart of the traditional Little League season, and we share in the great disappointment that many are feeling surrounding this additional pause in the 2020 season. However, it is our hope that by doing this, we will all play a small, but important part in flattening the curve in the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

We will continue to consult with appropriate medical advisors, government health officials and our volunteer leaders around the world, and we are committed to doing the best we can for the safety and wellbeing of our players, families, volunteers, and fans.

As this situation evolves, Little League International is committed to sharing the best guidance possible for all of our 6,500 leagues in more than 84 countries. It is our sincere hope that we can find ways to bring everyone back to the Little League fields this season, whether that’s later this spring or throughout the summer.

Currently, Little League International is working through all possible scenarios for the 2020 Little League International Tournament and tournament eligibility for our leagues and players in our various divisions of play.

Little League will continue to provide additional guidance on the impact of delaying the season and has developed a series of FAQs available at LittleLeague.org/Coronavirus. We are committed to sharing information as it becomes available on issues like player eligibility and tournament participation, charter and insurance status for the year, and A Safety Awareness Program plan deadlines.

We also will be sharing guidance on how to resume operations when appropriate, best practices for handling the financial implications, and how you can communicate with parents and families in your communities about this delay in Little League activity. This information will continue to be developed and shared on LittleLeague.org/Coronavirus and through all of our communications methods.

There are countless resources available, and we urge you to follow the information available through World Health OrganizationCenters for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), your state’s public health department (click here for a listing of state public health departments ), and other county and/or local authorities including precedents set by area school districts and government agencies.

We encourage you to stay in touch with Little League and share any additional feedback or questions from your local communities by emailing SeasonUpdate@LittleLeague.org.

Thank you all for your support, understanding, and community leadership. We will be thinking of our global Little League community during this difficult time.

Sincerely,

Stephen D. Keener

New Batting Regulations Starting 2018

Beginning on January 1, 2018 Little League will begin using a new standard established by USA baseball, and the current 1.15 Bat Performance Factor will no longer be the standard for Little League-approved bats. Baseball bats with the new USA Baseball Standard won't be commercially available until late 2017, for use in 2018, so, while your Little Leaguer's current  Little League- approved baseball bat will be good through next season, he or she will not be allowed to use it in 2018. For more imformation on the new bat standard, and to know if your bat will be allowed, visit www.littleleague.org/batinfo
