Your Redmond Little League Board has come to the decision to cancel the 2020 Little League season. This decision to cancel is disappointing, as I’m sure we all had plans to watch our youth participate in Little League baseball & softball this spring. Though continuing to delay the start of the season would only push our regular season later and later into the summer months with no guarantee on a start date. Your RLL Board also realizes that regardless of the start date, many families would not participate due to the continued threat of COVID-19 or other family summer commitments.
RLL Board has made the decision to offer full refunds to those families that request a refund. Though your RLL Board would like to ask families to leave your registration money in the program as a donation which is tax deductible (RLL Tax ID# 93-0814486).
Prior to the start of the season your RLL Board invested almost $50,000 making improvements to Umatilla Sports Complex infields with plans to continue the investment at Bowlby Sport Complex prior to the 2021 season. Without the RLL fundraiser and concessions income from this lost season, and the potential of a large volume of participant refunds the continued investment into 2021 may not be possible.
Refunds need to be requested by emailing [email protected]. Please include all your participants names in the email (first and last). Refunds will be refunded back to the credit card the account holder used to pay their 2020 fees. Please understand refunds have the potential of taking 2-3 weeks to complete once we receive your refund request. Do not send multiple requests if you feel your refund is taking too long. Once you have emailed, your name will be on our list.
REFUND REQUESTS NEED TO BE SUBMITTED BEFORE JUNE 30, 2020
RLL Summer Plans:
When social distancing is lifted by the Governor of Oregon, RLL plans to hold weekly sandlot baseball and softball nights, just for fun. These nights will vary based on the volunteers available. Activities could vary between fundamental drills and or scrimmages based on the number of kids that show up to participate each night. Please keep an eye out for emails when we are able to get that started.
Redmond Little League Board would like to thank you all as we have worked through these uncharted times. If you are unable to participate in our sandlot summer games, we hope to see you for Spring of 2021.
