The PLL Board of Directors would like to update you on the impact of COVID-19 on our Spring Baseball Season. The safety and well-being of your family and our Pocket community is our top priority. During these uncertain and unprecedented times, we ask for your patience and understanding as PLL addresses the evolving COVID-19 pandemic.
Little League International has updated their position and is strongly advising that all Little League programs suspend the season until Monday, May 11, 2020. Pocket Little League and District 7 will be complying with this recommendation. We recognize that this “pause” affects the heart of our traditional Little League season. PLL will continue to prepare for a fun and exciting Spring Season to ensure that we are 100% ready to resume the season when the suspension is lifted.
Some examples of things you can do to help flatten the curve and keep our community thriving:
- Eat and drink local to support our small business community.
- Social distancing. You can still play catch in an open space like your backyard or park, as long as you maintain at least six feet of distance between you and other people.
- Donate to help those economically affected within the City of Sacramento. Donate4Sacramento.org
Thank you all for your support! Together, we can make a difference. As additional information becomes available, we will be sure to pass it along.
Due to the recent developments associated with the spread of COVID-19, the PLL Board of Directors has postponed Opening Day ceremonies previously scheduled for Saturday, March 21, 2020.
Each year, this event draws as many as 800 people to Conlin Field, many of whom are grandparents and extended family members from all over California. We know that this is a beloved tradition for our PLL family, and so we are not canceling – but rather postponing – these activities for a later date. We are following the moratorium issued by Governor Gavin Newsom and the California Department of Public Health, regarding events involving more than 250 individuals, to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Many other Little Leagues in our District have also cancelled/postponed their Opening Day ceremonies.
We will continue to keep league families apprised of any further developments. Thank you, in advance, for your understanding and support.
Pocket Little League’s annual Little League Day is Sunday, April 26th at Oracle Park, home of the San Francisco Giants. The San Francisco Giants will face off against the reigning World Series Champions Washington Nationals at 1:05 p.m. This is one event you won’t want to miss, as all of our little sluggers will be welcomed onto the field for a pregame parade!
