March 16, 2020 – Little League International has now implored all active Little Leagues suspend play until May 11th and has recommended that the remaining leagues delay the start of their seasons until May 11th.
On March 12th, LLI had recommended a delay until April 6th.
The Maine Principals Association has delayed the beginning of the high school sports season by five weeks from March 23rd to April 27th, and the Town of Falmouth has banned public meetings for several weeks to come.
In a normal year, our indoor practices for AAA and Majors teams would have begun on Saturday, March 28th. This season, we will not schedule any indoor practices in the Falmouth high school and middle school gyms.
Do not expect to have any outdoor practices before April 27th.
We are now planning to begin the 2020 season on or around May 11th instead of May 2nd. The Opening Day Ceremony would likely be on Saturday, May 16th. We will schedule as many games as possible in a truncated season and we will consider the possibility of playing on Sundays if necessary.
All of this, of course, is subject to change as the coronavirus pandemic unfolds. The Falmouth Little League Board will hold its next meeting on Thursday, March 26th, and we will fully address this issue at that time. More updates to come.
