THE DRAFT IS A WRAP
PLAYERS AGENT DAVID YAKAITIS CHECKS THE AA DRAFT BOARD
Thank you all for your patience as our Player's Agent, VP's and Managers made their way through drafts and registration logs to assign players to teams and notify families. The fields are in final prep and soon we will be ready to get the season started at all locations!
Practices are commencing:
Advanced Baseball starts Tuesday, 2/23
Farm through Majors start Sunday, 2/28
Instructional will start Monday, 3/1
Managers will be in touch about each team's practice time and day. Parents, please be present at the beginning of your team's first practice to get your Medical Release signed and confirm we have your Informed Consent document processed through DocuSign. Both of these are a condition precedent to players being allowed to participate.
Games are now permitted in the Purple Tier per the State Guidelines issued 2/19, with some restrictions. This is an exciting time, and also a time where we need to be extra vigilant including maintaining social distance and abiding by the requirements. Please check the Lafayette Little League Covid Protocols for more details at the link on the left. Help us all make the experience a safe one for our players and families. Below is a link to the CDPH guidelines for reference as well.
Instructional through Majors divisions will have their first games the week of March 8th & Jamboree is planned for March 20-21 which is where all teams play at Buckeye Fields. Opening Day will be a little different this year, so hang in there as we sort through the details.
There is an exciting spring ahead of us - players will be on the fields, the weather is warming up and days are getting longer. Things are definitely looking up.
Have fun, and stay safe out there!
Lafayette Little League sadly lost a strong supporter of its Challenger program with the recent passing of Challenger parent Diane Hong. The mother of a current Challenger player, Diane's family has been involved with the program for several years. Diane always helped at practice with calm patience, a positive spirit and a warm smile. She will be greatly missed by the Challenger program and the entire Lafayette Little League Community.
Friends have established a GoFundMe account for the family's children, please support them here:

On Saturday, February 9, 2019 the Lafayette Little League community gathered to celebrate the courageous and inspirational life of Lafayette Little League player Alex McLin.
A member of the 2016 Majors Champion Nationals, Alex's heroic battle against bone cancer epitomized the courage and determination that made Alex a champion on the baseball field. His courage made him an inspiration to the entire Lafayette Little League community. In 2018 Lafayette Little League's summer tournament was renamed the Alex McLin Courage Classic in his honor.
