OK, so has everyone suspended their activities until April 6 or are there leagues out there still going on as usual?
Everyone in our District is shut down.

I see postings on Facebook that some leagues are continuing, but we shut everything down until the end of the month, and then when the Little League statement came out, until April 6th.

All the schools in our area are closed for at least two weeks starting tomorrow. (Some closed before.)

We (NorCal area) shut down last Friday and won't consider reopening until April 13th.

I can't speak for the east coast, but most leagues on the west coast will lose the main 2 months of their regular season, at a minimum.

 

If events get back to normal, which is a stretch right now, I sincerely hope LL cancels all stars for 2020 so leagues can focus on completing a season. Otherwise, the majority of little league players will lose out on a lot of baseball so the small minority can chase "glory".

If at all possible I don't think LL will cancel All Stars, way too much TV money involved but you never know. Depends on how long this thing goes on.

If play starts in mid or late May, I can see a lot of leagues not entering All Stars. Some leagues might "take a break" for All Stars and then finish a Regular Season after their team is eliminated from The Tournament.

At this point it's only a guess!

Yea, a lot of money involved.  

Though Little League talked about it, extending the spring season into the summer would mean they could not participate in the tournament. Out season end bumps right up against the tournament start as is. (Though there is empty times once the tournament gets going.)

"If play starts in mid or late May, I can see a lot of leagues not entering All Stars. Some leagues might "take a break" for All Stars and then finish a Regular Season after their team is eliminated from The Tournament."

Extending though the summer I think would really mean a two part season with different teams. So many kids would not be able to do the summer due to vacations, summer programs, etc. I don't know we could keep the same rosters.

Little League International President and CEO Steve Keener said Friday it’s too early to determine if there will be a Little League World Series or not come August.
