Additional Information Regarding Suspension of Little League Operations

How should our league/district handle the recommendation from Little League International to delay/suspend our Little League season?

We recommend that our leagues exercise an abundance of caution and implement a temporary suspension of all league activities until no earlier than May 11, this includes interleague play and combined teams.

How was the May 11 date chosen for resuming Little League activities?

Following the latest recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to refrain from gatherings for at least eight weeks, the leadership at Little League International chose the May 11 to coincide with that guidance. Our previous recommendation was April 6, however, we are now advising all leagues suspend/delay their activities until May 11.

What if my school or municipality is suspending activities past May 11?

Little League International strongly advises that local programs follow the guidance of their local authorities, evaluating school district closures, and local health department recommendations before resuming season play. Little League will be considerate of the missed game play opportunities as we establish an interim policy for tournament eligibility for the 2020 tournament season. It is our hope to alleviate any concerns of the impact of the situation on the tournament season and that your league and its families can focus on the health and well-being of your community at this time.
