Opening Day Ceremonies Update

Dear MNLL players and families,

Due to the new information we have received from the City of Milpitas, MUSD and District 59 Little League regarding coronavirus (COVID-19), the MNLL Board has decided to POSTPONE tomorrow’s Opening Ceremony. The safety of our players and community members is our highest priority. The District 59 District Administrator has informed us that other local leagues have also cancelled/postponed their opening ceremonies and/or opening day tomorrow. District 59 is in direct contact with both Little League Western Regional and Little League International as information is changing frequently.

Milpitas Vice Mayor Bob Nunez released the following statement earlier this evening: “We understand these recommendations will have an impact on our local events, community services, and most importantly, the lives of Milpitas residents, businesses and their employees. We are following the recommendations of [Santa Clara County] SCC Public Health in consultation with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.”

The MNLL Board will be planning a modified opening ceremony with a Milpitas National Little League Community Celebration once this heightened risk diminishes.

Games will still be played as scheduled tomorrow (pending weather). We will keep a close eye on the rain and send out a message ASAP if the fields become too wet.Team Pictures and Player Pictures are still scheduled for Sunday, 3/8. Please contact your Team Parents and Coaches to verify your Team meeting times for pictures.
