2020 LGYBS Update

Dear Lou Gehrig Families:

We have proceeded with cautious optimism, holding onto a thread of hope that the Spring LGYBS House Season would realistically be able to resume, knowing that the health and safety of our sports communities would dictate our course of action. It was our hope to be able to play ball and create lifelong memories because we understood what it meant to the boys and girls who play the game that we all love. 

Around the nation, many organizations have made the difficult decision to cancel their Spring season. We hoped that the data would provide reassurances that we could go in a different direction. Unfortunately, that will not be the case. The LGYBS Spring 2020 season is cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic which is affecting communities across the world.  All registration fees will be refunded in full within 30 days.     

Since March, we have continuously sought advice from state leaders, medical professionals, and the department of health to assess the probability of conducting our baseball and softball seasons in a manner that would uphold safety mandates and recommendations.

The decision to cancel the 2020 LGYBS season was a difficult one.  The LGYBS Board came to a consensus that, "It would be impractical and irresponsible to play house baseball and softball with the restrictions in place due to the inability to ensure operations under the protective guidelines and public safety through all events.”

This decision has been extremely difficult.  Although this is not what anyone on the Board wanted, it is what is best for our Lou Gehrig athletes and families. 

Our fingers are now crossed and our hopes are that we will be able to conduct a Fall 2020 House Season for both baseball and softball with some level of normalcy.  More information regarding the Fall 2020 Baseball and Softball Season will be sent out in the coming weeks as the summer picture comes into greater focus. 

Thank you for your understanding. Please be safe and be well.

Chairman, Lou Gehrig Youth Baseball and Softball

Volunteering

The 14U Lasers team volunteered their time to help at St Luke’s in February. The team and parents helped prepare and serve food along with other tasks St Luke’s needed done. It was a very rewarding feeling helping those less fortunate.
