Dear Palo Alto Babe Ruth Families,

We wanted to provide this update to all future and returning PABR families.

We are seeing positive trends and are hopeful for youth sports to resume in the near future. The good news is that we are flexible and committed to providing baseball for this community. We are an inclusive league that has zero travel or financial barriers. Our coaches, fields, equipment and umpires are all ready to go as soon as it’s safe to get back out!

We’d like to share our current thinking for a 2020 Babe Ruth season. We are targeting a 2-week workout for players to knock off the rust, hold a draft, then play a 5-week season followed by a 1-week City Tournament. We believe that starting this in early June and concluding at the end of July is possible. In addition to our 15U League, we are exploring a potential 18U Sr. League for players who were unable to have a high school season and for 15’s who want to play in both leagues.

When we resume, we will remain committed to safety and will follow social distancing best-practices. While we do not have all the answers at this moment, we are hopeful to have better clarity around a firm timeline and format within the next 2 weeks. If the season does get cancelled, the League policy is to provide you with a 100% refund.

As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to your 15U team manager or the board via email at ron.fried@sri.com if you have any questions.

Sincerely,
PABR Board of Directors
