Updated League Schedule for COVID-19 Impacts

March 13th, 2020

Hello Pacific Little League Families, Coaches, Umpires, and Volunteers,

The PLL board officer team met again last night to consider the latest information and make updates to our season plan based on that information. The latest information:

  • All schools in our county are closed through at least 4/24. We expect that all community use of Edmonds School District fields will be suspended until that date (currently we know they're suspended through 4/13) and this greatly affects our practice field availability.
  • Little League is asking that we suspend all activity until at least 4/6 and has said they will not hold us to game minimums for all stars tournament qualification.
  • The governor has issued a ban on all events of 250 people or more which we regularly exceed when all three fields are going at Lynndale. Additionally the health district has mandated that gatherings of fewer than 250 implement advanced steps to mitigate risk.
  • The City of Lynnwood & City of Edmonds have closed Meadowdale Athletic Complex for all use. Additionally, ESD has asked us to keep our use of Scriber to only our own teams. This impacts the older baseball divisions (Intermediates, Seniors) as they play Interleague games with other District 1 leagues at the Scriber location.
  • Slowing the spread of this virus in our community is our #1 priority.

In light of this, we've decided to revise the season calendar as follows:

  • 4/6 we will evaluate the current situation and possibly begin upper division practices (Intermediates, Seniors Baseball) at Scriber.
  • 4/25 ESD community use of fields reopens and practices begin for all divisions. No practices or team events, voluntary or otherwise, are to be held before this date unless you have received further communication from the board stating otherwise.
  • 5/2 Opening day. Games begin for all divisions.
    • Majors baseball will play 3 games per week until we must wrap up for all stars tournament play.
    • We will extend the season through the end of the school year for Minors, 89ers, Farm/Rookies and Tball.
  • 5/9 Little League Day

Things are a bit up in the air for those divisions that play Interleague (Majors & Juniors Softball, Intermediates & Seniors Baseball.) We don't have a solid starting date from District 1 yet as they're monitoring all leagues and will keep us informed as decisions are made. I'll keep those divisions updated as information comes in regarding game start dates.

Communication of these dates will be going out in waves today. This email to coaches & volunteers will be followed by an email to all families. Please feel free to point anyone with questions to me or anyone on the board of directors.

This has been a hectic week. I want to thank everyone for being flexible and keeping the best interest of our players & community as our highest priority.

Stay safe,

Rhi
