With the loss of the spring sports season following Covid-19, Pelham’s youth baseball organization, Pelham Little League (PLL), has announced their plans for extending the season through the summer and possibly into the fall.

While games may be out of reach in terms of social distancing and proper safety precautions, PLL said on its website that clinics and practices may be a way to get kids active and justify the registration fees it has already received. The league wants to design practices with proper spacing adhered to, and said that practices could become more feasible with the possibility of distancing measures and other safety precautions lessening as time goes on.

Pelham Little League said it will not be able to give refunds in the event that government guidelines do not allow for a season. Parents of kids who planned to participate will receive a credit for future seasons in the event of cancellation. The organization said  it has already spent money on “uniforms, insurance, equipment, baseballs, softballs, bats, clubhouse rent, storage etc.” 

While Little League is starting to plan for a return, these plans continue to be tentative, parents should not expect to recoup all of their money; instead, they may have to take credits for future seasons.
