The LFLC Executive Board has been following all of the developing health news that’s bringing our daily lives to a halt. Recognizing that our season begins in just a few short weeks, we have decided to take a very cautious approach with the way we handle the upcoming practice and game schedule. As parents ourselves we want what’s best for our players. In doing so, the General Managers of each division have been instructed to contact each coach and pass along all of the up to date information so they can update their respective players and families. As of now, all baseball activities for the week of 3/13/20 have been postponed. We will revisit the practice schedule in the coming days and evaluate where things stand and if it’s safe to proceed. Opening up for the season takes a lot of effort. Uniforms, inspections, and food orders are all in play here so there are many moving parts. Our focus is to get the season going, but we won’t sacrifice safety to do so. Please continue to check back for more updates as we decide how to proceed forward with what has been an unusual experience for all, to say the least.
Thank you for your patience,
Little Fellows League of Colonia Executive Board
Just A Little Boy
He stands at the plate with heart pounding fast
The bases are loaded, the die has been cast.
Mom and Dad cannot help him; he stands alone
A hit at this moment would send the team home.
The ball meets the plate, he swings and he misses.
There's a groan from the crowd, with some boos and some hisses.
A thoughtless voice cries: "Strike out the bum!"
Tears fill his eyes; the game is no longer fun.
So open your heart and give him a break,
For it's moments like this, a man you can make.
Keep this in mind when you hear someone forget,
He's just a little boy, and not a man yet.
