A Message from our League President...

Hello Everyone, 

For those that don’t know me, I'm Mike Karagiannes, current President of Augusta Little League. I thought it was important to reach out to everyone with an update on our plans for Augusta Little League. Because of the coronavirus (COVID-19), Little League International is suggesting that all leagues postpone the start of baseball until May 11th, 2020. 

"Little League International operates more than 6,500 programs in more than 84 countries, and therefore, we recommend that our leagues exercise an abundance of caution and implement a temporary suspension/delay of all league activities until no earlier than May 11."

Because our number one priority is the health and safety of those involved in Little League baseball, Augusta will be abiding by these recommendations and suspending activities until May 11th, unless new guidance is received from Little League International or the Maine CDC. I pledge, with the full approval of the board, that we will do everything in our power to make sure that there is a season this year. If we have to start the season later than normal, we will still play a full season.

With that in mind, please continue to take advantage of our online registration – we have extended the date of registrations to April 30, 2020 for your convenience. Also know, if for some unforeseen reason we have to cancel the season in its entirety, we are prepared to issue refunds, or offer to carryforward your registration fee to the next season.  

So our current plan is as follows: as mentioned above, we are extending the deadline for registration to April 30th. It is now more important than ever to register in a timely manner because we will be ordering uniforms and equipment with very little lead time. We are currently targeting May 30th for the start of the season. With that in mind, we hope to have evaluations for minors and majors on May 16th. One positive is that we should be able to have the evaluations at the fields, but of course all this is subject to change.

Please continue to check your email, our website, and our Facebook page for updates. If you have any questions, please reach out to us. Please stay healthy and safe during this trying time.

Sincerely,

Mike Karagiannes, President
