IMPORTANT LEAGUE UPDATE (5/18):
Guys – First off, hope that all of you and your families are safe and healthy. Not much has changed with the league since the last update of a couple of weeks ago. We are STILL in limbo with things, as no new info has come our way, although the governor has said that pro sports will probably be allowed in June, which may be a good sign. We will start to make some long range plans (which can always be changed) later this week or next. We will keep abreast of the coronavirus situation, listen to the experts, and follow all orders given in regards to getting back on the field. However, we can only do what each city, school or field administrator will allow, which take their cues from the state of California and/or the cities that they are located in. More and more it looks like July for a return (hopefully), but even at that, we may have less field availability for our league. We will shorten (fewer games) and extend (past August, and maybe into October) the season and will not have a winter season, but we will have a baseball season IF ALLOWABLE. As stated, we are solely dependent on the field administrators, which follow the federal and state guidelines, so we cannot get back to playing until they allow us to do so. This is the biggest variable, and will determine our course of action. The league has plans for different scenarios upon a return of games, but since there are so many variables, those plans are simply outlines that will need to change once we have concrete information.
Safety …. once we resume, you will be playing at your own risk (as always). We will have some safety guidelines based on the suggestions by the experts … sanitation protocols, possible mask wearing in dugouts, social distancing in dugouts, etc. But those will be expressed once we resume. And before we come back, the Los Angeles Baseball League will need every player to sign the new Player Liability Waiver & Indemnification Form, and that form must be on file with the league before that player participates in any event (game, tournament, practice, tryout, etc.). We realize this is major pain in the butt, but we need to take every precaution possible to make sure this league can continue in the future. After reading this waiver form, every player must print their name, sign their name, date it, and then scan the form and email to the league (firstname.lastname@example.org OR email@example.com). PLEASE DO THIS AS SOON POSSIBLE … NO MATTER WHEN WE START BACK, ONLY PLAYERS THAT HAVE SENT THIS FORM BACK TO THE LEAGUE WILL BE ALLOWED TO PLAY (NO/ZERO EXCEPTIONS).
Now more than ever if you have any contacts (coach, friend, business partner, etc.) at any field that may be available, please let us know. We will need to find fields that may be available to replace ones that do not open up. And realize that there may be a few fields in the short term that may not be up to our normal standards. But, unless we’ve read the room incorrectly, you guys would rather play on those types of fields than not.
Stay safe, sane and healthy, and remember, we are all in this together (so tired of this, but true). Should you have any questions, comments, suggestions or concerns, please email me.

A few rules that all (including umpires) need to know ..
No sunflower seeds at any fields, even in the dugouts!
No dogs by players or their fans at any fields. No smoking of any substances at any fields. No alcohol or drugs ... ever! Clean the dugout before and after your game. Park at your own risk at fields and be aware of foul balls.
