A Plan to Play Ball!

I hope this update finds you and your loved ones doing well!  In the near future I hope to be updating you regarding League Activities, scores, standings and events.  Before all of that can happen, we need to get to a place that is deemed safe for all participants, fans, facilities and interactions.  Knowing that at this time, this continues to be a moving and evolving situation with lack of clarity at most levels, we remain very positive for the outcome.

We are still planning out a season for the summer if Governor Inslee feels that it is appropriate to lift the social distancing measures that are currently in place to allow for team sports.  We have formed a committee for Reopening the League that will focus on all aspects of player safety and fan safety as it pertains to state and local authorities as well as CDC guidelines.  This would include but not be limited to cleanliness procedures, health procedures and social distancing procedures.  We will be communicating our plan for reopening the season to you by email and on our social media sites by June 15th, 2020.  We understand that this has been a trying time for everyone and sincerely appreciate the patience you have granted us!  Here is a link to Governor Inslee’s Phased Approach.

Taking into consideration the phased approach above as well as the information we have received from Renton School District and the City of Renton Parks Department our season would be as follows and is subject to change:

·        July 1st, 2020 – Season starts with practices

·        July 14th, 2020 – Games start

·        August 30th, 2020 – Season Ends

Thinking about seeing all of the players enjoying the game of baseball brings a big smile to my face!

In order for Renton Little League to operate we have expenses that we endure each year.  Here is a link to the expenses we’ve incurred this year.  We have been working diligently on providing options for all families to consider with their registration fees, keeping in mind our main source of income are these fees.  Please take a moment to consider the options below and respond in kind to the directions on or before May 31st, 2020.  This will serve as a great guide for us financially, for planning out the remainder of the season and preparations for 2021.


Option A

Continue to patiently await the outcome of social distancing measures and hope to play during the summer season!  If you would like Renton Little League to hold your 2020 League fees in the hope of playing this season please email [email protected] with the subject line HOPE! and include the name you registered under as well as your players name.


Option B

Option out of a 2020 summer season and application of 2020 Registration Fees towards 2021 Registration in Renton Little League.  Renton Little League would credit the full amount of your paid registration for the 2020 season towards play in the 2021 season.  This option would benefit the League by allowing us to navigate our expenses for 2020 and financially plan for 2021.  It would allow the player to be pre-registered for the 2021 season which will come with some proposed additional training opportunities during the winter months.  Note that if registration fees are increased by vote of the membership there will be a balance due to play in 2021.  Your application of fees may not constitute paid in full.  If you would like to apply your 2020 League fees towards participation in the 2021 Renton Little League season please email [email protected] with the subject line APPLY 2021! and include the name you registered under as well as your players name.


Option C

Donation of all or part of my 2020 Registration Fees to Renton Little League.  Renton Little League is a non-profit 501c3 organization recognized by the Federal Government.  Your donation of the registration fees would go towards offsetting our expenses which are outlined in the link above.  Renton Little League will provide you with a statement of donation for accounting purposes.  If you would like to donate your 2020 League fees to Renton Little League please email [email protected] with the subject line DONATE! and include the name you registered under as well as your players name and the amount you wish to donate, full donation or partial amount donation.


Option D

Full Refund of 2020 Registration Fees.  If you would like a full refund of your 2020 League fees please email [email protected] with the subject line REFUND FULL! and include the name you registered under as well as your players name.


Refunds will be issued either via check or placed back on the method of payment each individual used during the registration process.  This process will start June 1st, 2020.


The safety and welfare of our players and community are paramount.  We know that by offering the above options there is the possibility of great risk for the league, but reward of knowing that we are doing what is right for our players and families.  We thank you for all that you do for us and our community!  We sincerely appreciate all of the patience you have had with us as we have navigated through this continuing situation.
