COVID-19 Update

In a perfect world, our sons and daughters would be several weeks into their Little League seasons by now.  COVID-19 has thrown us all a curve ball.  Little League International officially cancelled the 2020 Little League World Series in Williamsport, however, they are encouraging local programs to continue their seasons if it fits within state guidelines and requirements.

It remains our goal as a league to try to get the season underway and return some semblance of normalcy to our players' lives.  As with all other youth sports right now in Minnesota, we are in a holding pattern waiting to hear from the Governor's office and the Minnesota Department of Health regarding when youth sports can begin and under what requirements.  

A task force representing all youth sports has been working on return to play protocols and guidelines specific to each sport.  The most recent updates indicate that early this week those plans will be presented to the Governor's office and the Minnesota Department of Health for review.  The hope is a response will be received fairly quickly, and any necessary modifications would be made to get our sons and daughters on the field if it's determined it can be done so safely.  Little League will be following the same guidelines and procedures as other youth baseball and softball programs in Minnesota. The CRALL Board is waiting to see what transpires with this process before making any official decisions on this summer's leagues.  As soon as a decision is made by the Governor's office, our board will meet and determine how return to play guidelines will impact our program.  The board has been preliminary brainstorming some ideas, but until a possible start date is determined by the Governor's office discussing specifics is premature.

In a best case scenario based upon the task force's return to play proposal, there is the potential that practices could begin in early June with league games potentially beginning in mid June.  This is pending official review and approval from the Governor's office.  As you all know, this is a very fluid situation, and it's possible these dates could be optimistic.   

If/when we are able to start our season, there will be changes from past years to comply with return to play protocols, which will likely include items such as face masks, limiting spectators, social distancing in dugouts and at the park, swapping out baseballs for each team, separate entrances and exits to the park, longer times between games, limited concessions (if any), extending the season later into summer, etc.  At a minimum, CRALL will strictly follow any return to play guidelines put out by the Governor's office, and may impose more restrictive ones in the interest of keeping our kids and families as safe as possible.  

We will do our best to keep you updated and hopefully we can provide a positive baseball experience for our players this summer.

Stay safe!  Hopefully very soon we can hear "Play Ball!" again.

 


Help Build a Brick Walkway at CRALL!!

Help Build a Brick Walkway at CRALL!!

CRALL has an exciting opportunity for you enshrine your family or company’s name at the park for years to come, while also helping out with a much needed improvement for our baseball complex.   

Here’s How: To provide safe and easy access to the park, especially for our less mobile visitors, a brick walkway will be installed at the main entrance to our fields. You can purchase your own personalized commemorative brick that will help fund the project, and make this a wonderful memorial walkway into a place that holds countless fond memories for so many. It is also a great way for businesses to advertise and support the CRALL program.  

  Our goal is to sell enough bricks in the next four months to start construction of the walkway this spring. The total cost for the entire project will be around $30,000.

 There are three different brick options to choose from: 4" x 8" bricks (text only) are $50, 8" x 8" bricks (text only) are $100, and 8" x 8" bricks (text and logo) are $150.  The engraving will be done by a local company in Andover.

Please follow the link below and order your personalized entrance monument brick today.
