COVID-19 Delays Lebanon Youth Baseball Until May 11

It is with a deep regret that Lebanon Youth Baseball will be extending the suspension for ALL practices and games for teams of Lebanon Youth Baseball due to the COVID-19 pandemic until Monday, May 11, 2020. This includes ALL select Lynx and Warriors teams who participate in the Midwest Ohio Baseball League or the Southwest Ohio Baseball League, as well as ALL teams in Lebanon Little League.
 
LYB is following the recommendation of the Center for Disease Control, who today suggested that there should not be a gathering of ten or more people in the same area. Governor Mike DeWine, who closed schools until Monday, April 6, 2020, has closed bars and restaurants for carry out only. The NCAA has cancelled their spring sports season. Major League Baseball is suspending the start of the regular season now until mid-May. Little League Baseball today recommended that we delay the season until May 11. This situation is very fluid and is changing by the minute. Should the situation improve and there is approval for an earlier start date, we will certainly let you know.

LYB feels it is important that we follow suit to protect the health and well-being of our community. We wanted to contact you all directly to inform you that we are taking this situation very seriously and monitoring it closely.

The intent at this time is for teams of Lebanon Youth Baseball to play a full season in 2020. We need to remain flexible as events warrant, with the hope of returning to normal baseball operations as soon as possible. If the situation dictates that the season need to be cancelled, LYB at that time will present to you refund options.

It is our hope by being proactive, we won’t have to be reactive. Right now, we need to make sure our players, volunteers and families remain healthy and safe. 

If there is a change in the situation, we will update by www.lebanonbaseball.org, email, Facebook (LYBOhio) and Twitter (@LYB-45036).

Thank you for your patience and support of Lebanon Youth Baseball.
