Spring/Summer Season Canceled

Hello from all of us here at L’Anse Creuse Little League,

We hope everyone is safely weathering the current pandemic and is doing what they can to help those in need and preventing the spread of this virus.  We all know someone who has been affected by this virus and many of us know somebody who has passed as a result of its effects.  In relation to this, the Executive Board Members of LCBB have anguished over the past couple of months as to what we could do about the upcoming season.  As event after event has been cancelled or postponed, we were reminded as to the primary function of Little League is to help make better people and a stronger community through youth sports in a healthy environment.   This has lead us to discuss options with local officials and medical professionals to arrive at the following decision.

We are officially cancelling the LCBB 2020 Spring/Summer Baseball Season.    This was influenced by the cancellation of the Little League World Series earlier this month along with the cancellation of all Little League sanctioned tournaments in the state of Michigan.  With the dynamic nature of this situation, we have decided this will be the best option at this time; not only for our LCBB players and families but our volunteers as well.

Therefore we will be refunding all 2020 registrants for the Spring/Summer season.  We will not be able to refund the $3.00 register fee from Blue Sombrero as they have charged that to each individual registrant as a processing fee.  If you are interested in donating your registration fee for the 2020 Spring/Summer Season to LCBB for future improvements with our league that would be greatly appreciated, you can do so by contacting Dave Kaynor at [email protected] and he will help in making those arrangements.    

 We have not given up on the hope of a 2020 Baseball Season as of yet.  We are currently putting together plans for a 2020 Fall Ball Season for LCBB in the chance that restrictions are lifted by the State of Michigan and the C.D.C., and we will be able to play baseball as we know it.  The details of the Fall Season are being assembled at the moment, but we envision a season taking place in mid/late summer and into the fall.  There will be differences in this shortened season which will be reflected in the cost.  Please watch for this information to come to you under the email you used to register with LCBB also on our Facebook Page and at lcbb.org

Please understand this is not a decision that was made lightly.  We want nothing more than to be back on the ball fields with all of you, our LCBB Families, and we will be once the current crisis has passed and we can do so safely.  As this situation continues to develop we will get more solid dates and supply them to you at once.  We ask that you please give us a bit of time to figure out some of the logistics.  We all thank you for being so supportive.

We will be in touch, be safe, be strong and hopefully soon we will all be able to say “PLAY BALL !!!!!!!!”

Kindest of regards from all of us,

Chris Yakey – President

Jed Jones – Vice President

Kyle Nirganakis – Secretary

Dave Kaynor - Treasurer
