REMAINING 2020 SEASON CANCELLED

Hello TCALL Fans,

Our Board of Directors met last night and have come to the difficult decision to officially end our Spring Season.  This decision was made after considering many factors, but especially the safety of our players and their families.  It is very disappointing for us, as we know how positive youth sports can be in helping to recover from tough times.  As much as we had hoped to be able to resume, we have not been given any assurances that will be possible any time soon.  Our use of Live Oak Park is permitted through the City of Temple City.  The City is relying on health regulations and guidance related to COVID-19 from L.A. County.  We have been waiting for L.A. County to move us into a phase that safely allows youth sports again, but we haven’t seen any more progress leading to that phase.  Once we advance to that phase, we have been advised by Little League Headquarters to use 2 weeks for practices before beginning games again.  Taking all of that into consideration with the highest level of optimism, that would get us playing games again at the earliest in July.  In addition to that, we would need to restructure teams, give additional training to managers, coaches, players and parents, and implement many new guidelines.  Our Board was willing to put in all the additional work needed, but as potential dates to resume continue to get pushed later and later into the summer we had to decide and not continue to drag everyone along.   I would like to emphasize again how difficult this decision has been.  We feel extremely bummed for our 12 year-olds who are missing out on their “graduation” season.  It is our hope that things will have some semblance of normal for next spring.  We are still looking into other options for our players this summer.
