Lafayette Youth Baseball

Covid-19 Update

3/17/2020

LYB Parents,

 

Lafayette Youth Baseball continues to monitor the ever-changing environment created by the Covid-19 virus and would like to inform you of the current status of our 2020 events and season. First, as a reminder Meet the Coach night previously scheduled for April 2ndhas been cancelled.  Teams will be communicated electronically in mid to late April, and fundraiser collection points are still being discussed at this time.

As we look forward, on Sunday 3/15/2020, the CDC recommended that organizers of events involving greater than 50 people cancel those events if they were not essential. In addition to that, the United States government has since recommended that such gatherings be limited to 10 people in the immediate future. While our goal remains to begin playing baseball as soon as possible, it is also imperative that we all take these restrictions seriously. 

With that being said, there will be other effects to our league schedule and timeline:

·       Field Day previously scheduled for Saturday April 4thhas been postponed. Tentatively we will plan for this to take place on Sunday May 10. (8 weeks from CDC issuance of recommendation) We will need everyone’s help when we are able to get out there as a group and work on the diamonds as we will be over a month behind. I know everyone will be ready to get out of the house, so please circle this date on the calendar to come out to your respective park (Armstrong or McCaw) and help get the fields ready for play. 

·       Picture day scheduled for Saturday April 25 will also be postponed to a date to be named later. 

·       Season Timeline as of 3/18/2020: Practice time for the 2020 season will be extremely limited. For 12U/14U age groups we anticipate the Tippecanoe County Baseball schedule to move forward as planned with a 5/11 start date. This may mean your team does not get time to practice ahead of your first game. This is not ideal, but it is the situation we are in today. For the remainder of LYB we will plan for a 1-week practice period, with games beginning approximately 5/18 and ending before the 4thof July as originally planned. 

We will continue to monitor the situation and advice given by the CDC, the government and our local school corporations to adjust the above as appropriate. Distribution of this communication will be via email such as this announcement. Lafayette Youth Baseball does have contingency plans that include shortening the summer season further if needed, or in an extreme case pushing back the start dates to a late summer/fall format. (August-September season) These options will only be exercised if deemed necessary.

Thank you all for your patience as we work through a difficult time. We all need sports and baseball back in our lives as quickly as possible, but the health and safety of our community must come first. Please stay tuned for future updates as available.

Registration is now closed - Please check back regarding Fall Baseball sometime this summer!
