2020 Season Announced


Are you ready to play some ball? 

After extensive deliberation, Cicero Little League is excited to announce our plan for the upcoming 2020 baseball and softball seasons!

Team practices are currently expected to begin July 15th and games are scheduled to start August 1st. We intend to provide 12-15 games with an extended season into September (while taking potential fall school burdens into account when scheduling).

While most games will be played in Central Park, some may be played nearby at Skyway Park in North Syracuse, Meltzer Park or Clay Central Park (depends on division and field availability). 

Big News! Registration is OPEN again for ONE WEEK ONLY for ALL Divisions. If you have friends or family looking for a summer sport, then this is their last chance to signup to play America's Pastime. Please direct them to the CLL website (CiceroLittleLeague.com) so they can register before 6/21.

Got older players? Registration is open for 13u Intermediate, 14u Juniors and 16u Seniors divisions. These are travel divisions that play teams from area leagues at home and away.

This season, CLL will be following certain guidelines required by state and local governments, as well as Little League International, to insure the safety of our players and families. We will all be expected to comply in order to continue playing. This may include things like social distancing, face coverings for coaches and spectators, and group size limits.

Players will not be allowed to share gear this season, including helmets and bats. Players who do not have their own helmet or bat can request one from the league via email. We have a limited amount, so please only request if needed. Gear will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis and must be returned at the end of the season. 

With all of this in mind, our need for league volunteers is greater than ever. Without enough helping hands, we may not be able to move forward in July for every division. This is especially true for younger divisions, such as T-Ball and Division-A. Please login today and register yourself as a helping hand, coach, assistant coach, concession stand helper or to help with field/facility maintenance. If we cannot provide a season for a specific division due to a lack of volunteers or participants, then those player fees will be refunded. 

So that everyone understands what to expect, we ask that every parent and/or guardian reads through the guidelines provided by Little League International and discusses relevant parts with children signed up to play (link below):

If you do not wish to participate in this season, then please request a registration cancellation and refund by Sunday 6/21/2020 via email to [email protected] 

If you do not wish to participate in this season, but would like to donate your registration fee to the league, please tell us and know that your contribution is greatly appreciated and will be remembered. 

Be advised that after 6/21, no refunds will be given as we will be moving forward with the season based on already confirmed registrations like yours. Mandated shutdowns imposed upon the league may not be a valid reason for a refund once the season begins.

We're looking forward to a fun and enriching season for everyone!

Please let us know if you have any questions or feedback.

Thank you,

Cicero Little League
