Milwood Little League Cancels 2020 Season

Dear Milwood Little League Families,

We appreciate your patience as we have been eagerly awaiting information and weighing the options for this Little League season. However, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and all of the associated uncertainties, the Board of Directors, with guidance from Little League International, has made the very hard decision to cancel our 2020 regular season. We feel this is the right choice for the safety and health or our Milwood families and volunteers. 

To say we are disappointed is an understatement.  In Milwood’s 65 year history, we have not gone a year without providing the best experience possible for Kalamazoo’s children to play ball. We will continue to investigate any and all realistic ways to make that happen once and if conditions permit.

With the regular season officially cancelled, we are giving families two options in regard to registration and fundraising payments. The first option is a full refund. The second option gives families an opportunity to donate some or all of their payment to Milwood Little League. Even though we might not play at all this season, there are expenses that the league has already incurred in preparation for the 2020 season and even more to get ready for 2021 (facility/field maintenance, equipment upgrade, utilities, insurance, etc). As a non-profit organization this kind of loss is devastating and we do appreciate any donation you would be willing to make.

Please fill out this form to let us know how you would like us to handle your registration payment. Please have this information submitted by Sunday, May 31, 2020. This form must be submitted to receive a refund. 

On behalf of the league, we sincerely appreciate your continuous support and look forward to seeing you real soon! 

Sincerely,

Milwood Little League Board of Directors
