season cancellation

Dear WBI Families,

 

On Thursday, May 14, 2020, the WBI Board met to discuss the feasibility of our regular Spring/Summer baseball season. Our board considered the feedback from the community through the survey we distributed to registered families as well as the guidance being provided by local, regional and state officials and organizations.

 

At this time, with a heavy heart, the Westchester Baseball Board has decided to cancel the 2020 regular season.

 

None of us wanted this result, but it became clear based on the feedback from the community and the fact that we are not able to know for certain when the season could begin, we believe that this is the most prudent step at this time.

 

These are difficult times for everyone, including our board members. Based on the feedback from our baseball family, WBI will be issuing refunds (less non-recoverable transaction fees) to all registered families in the next few weeks. There is nothing you need to do; you will see the refund as a credit to the credit card used for registration.  For those families that made additional donations to WBI, we thank you for your support.  We have decided to refund those donations as well, as we know that many families could use the extra money at this time.  For those families that used a gift certificate, the certificate will be carried over and valid for the 2021 season, and you will be refunded any fees (less non-recoverable transaction fees) for costs not covered by the certificate.

 

With that being said, WBI is moving our focus to the possibility for a more robust fall baseball program if/when we can safely begin playing baseball. We received positive feedback that baseball later in the summer could be an option if/when we’re allowed to get back together on the diamond. Should fall baseball become a reality, we will communicate via email and social media with new registration dates for interested players.

 

Similarly, for players not involved in Little League (Pony, Colt, and Palomino), we will continue to monitor the potential for late summer and fall seasons.  Should that become a possibility, a separate registration process would also be held for interested players.

 

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time.   Please continue to use your Westchester Baseball discount card and support our local businesses.  Your support of WBI and our community is greatly appreciated.

 

Should you have any questions, please email us at [email protected].

Stay safe and well.  Baseball will be back!

 

Sincerely,
Westchester Baseball Board
