The Lebanon County Pony Baseball League (LCPBL) has reached the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 season. We each intend to provide a robust "fall ball" product (which will really be "late summer/fall ball") as a replacement to the canceled season, with games likely starting before school starts (mid to late August) and ending in early October, format TBD.
Associations obviously reserve the right to schedule scrimmages or "real games" and LCBPL will share contact information for umpires or coordinators if needed. None of those games or events are sanctioned by LCPBL. We are each suspending league operations (except certain business and planning that can be conducted virtually, or in person as conditions change) through July 31, 2020. Any games or tournaments prior to that are not part of our intended "late summer/fall ball season" and are outside our jurisdiction and would be conducted at the accountability of the Association(s), not LCPBL. The earliest that we will consider "sanctioned" games is sometime in middle to late August and any such games will be considered part of the "late summer/fall ball season" referenced in the first paragraph of this email.
We planned for the worst, but hoped for the best. Thanks for your patience as we navigated this situation and for your continued patience and cooperation as we attempt to figure out the next step.
