Valley Families,

First, I hope that all of you are in good health.  We have seen a lot happen in our world over the last few weeks and I know that it has impacted all of us, and some more than others. Being that today would have been Opening Day for Major League Baseball, it was a huge reminder to me that so much has changed in our lives and that we have put so much on hold until we can somehow find “normal” again. 

I have spoken to many of you and understand the concerns you have for your families and your baseball players. I look forward to the day we can all congregate at a baseball field again to watch our children play. I know many of the parents that have 12-year-olds are concerned about watching their son or daughter’s last season in Little League slip away after only a few games were played. Having said all of that, we know that health will always trump a baseball game and the board is committed to making sure it is safe for your kids to return to the field when the time is right. 

As a board, we continue to monitor what is going on in the world and what our local governing bodies are doing in regard to public health safety as guidance on when we can resume our season. As of the latest, outdoor youth sporting activities will be suspended at least until May. All city parks are closed including our baseball fields. In addition, we are monitoring Little League International recommendations.

Those that were with our league last year know we saw a month of games rescheduled due to weather. If we learned anything from last year, we know how to make a season that started bad with so many rainouts turn out great, thanks to some scheduling adjustments and some really competitive baseball from our older divisions.

While we are still in a holding pattern for this season, please know that our board is dedicated to playing baseball as soon as it is safe to do so. 

Go Valley!

PVLL President

Valley Families,

The Petaluma Valley Little League Board of Directors has continued to monitor the local situation with regards to the Coronavirus. At this time, both Petaluma City Schools and Old Adobe Union School District have cancelled in-person classes through March 27th.

Following this, the PVLL Board of Directors has suspended our 2020 Little League season until no earlier than March 28th. No games, practices or other Little League activities will be held. Decisions regarding rescheduling or schedule-cropping will be made at a later date.

As the situation continues to change, we will continue to monitor. We will keep you apprised during the hiatus with any information on the resumption of the season activities or any extension of the suspension. We appreciate your understanding and patience.
