Local summer leagues remain in holding pattern

Posted

As the days continue to tick by without sports, officials in charge of local summer leagues continue to try to wait things out before making any decisions on whether or not they will be able to play at any point this summer.

While other communities in the surrounding area appear to be making attempts to re-open and get back on the field, Lawrence County remains in a holding pattern. Not much movement has been made by any local league, outside of the Chauncey Ball League, who announced the cancellation of their season a few weeks ago.

Everyone else is still waiting to see if either the county can reach the guidelines set forth by the state or that the guidelines will change and allow them to take the field. Those leagues who continue to wait and see include Lawrenceville Little League Baseball, Lawrence County Cal Ripken Baseball based in Bridgeport and Lawrenceville and Bridgeport softball associations.

In related news, Lawrence County Soccer has cancelled a clinic that was scheduled for June 13. However, the league will still hold registration for the fall season and the 14-under travel team that day from 9-11 a.m., as well as from 4-6 p.m. June 10 at the Lawrence County Farm Bureau building in Lawrenceville.

Most of the organizations are providing periodic updates through social media, so anyone interested in more information can check those sites and/or contact board members for their respective league.

The Daily Record will continue to update the situation as information becomes available.
