A Letter to our Little League Families

Reedsburg LL Families (12U and under):

We are currently monitoring the situation and working together with our local district 4 administrator, city representatives, and our local little league board to make sure we are ready for a return to the fields.  We are getting closer to returning to the diamond.

Before we begin the season, I would first like to stress that the Safety and Health of our participants, families, and community is the most important factor.  We will be working on guidelines and procedures that will be in place to protect all of us.

The one area in our program that we have the most control is our in-house season, this would be for players age 7 – age 12.  In order for us to begin the season, we would need to draft the teams and begin a schedule to allow for practices and then followed by games.

Before we do the drafts at Majors/Minors/AAA, we have a few things to consider.

  • The plan is for the season to go approximately through the month of July.
    • A few weeks of practice (Beginning shortly after the draft in the next few weeks)
    • 5-6 weeks of games (Games would be played during the week, typically Monday through Friday Evenings – Based on field availability)
  • The District and travel part of the season, is still up in the air.Several things will need to be worked through over the next few weeks.Some tournaments have been cancelled and others are in limbo.
  • If you choose to play and we have uniforms on order, we will not give a full refund.
  • If you choose not to play we will provide you a full refund.
  • This summer we will have many challenges, please be aware that we will do our best to communicate changes/adjustments as we go forward.The one thing I will guarantee is that whatever we decide it will be in the best interest of Safety for our families.

Finally, before I can organize the drafts, I would like to give Reedsburg Families the choice on playing baseball this summer.  Please consider the options and choose the best option for your situation.

  1. Yes, we still want to play:
    1. If signed up do nothing and wait for a coach to contact you about practice times.
    2. If not signed up, sign up by 5/16
  2. No, I do not want to play this year.
    1. Please send an e-mail to both Mark and Jodie stating you do not wish to participate this season by Noon on Sunday 5/17.

Thanks and Stay Safe
