Summer Leagues
Hello everyone, 
As we head into Summer, we are very excited to say we will be having softball and baseball this July and August!  I want to thank all of the board members in Fairport Little League.  They have been working tirelessly over these past few months.  Their dedication and love for the kids, the community, and the sport are second to none.  We are very, very fortunate to have such a solid group of volunteers.  You can click here to see the names of those who have been working behind the scenes to bring our kids back to the ball fields!  When you see them, please thank them.
I also want to thank many of our parents who have dedicated their time to our fields these last couple of weeks.  Dan Adams, Lou Bianco, Rich Bucenec, Dave Corsaro, Chuck DiPiazza, Keith Donohue, Steve Gossin, Tom Halter, Chris Lindquist, Mike McDonnell, Jason Rucker, Stacy Schell, and Brian Short dedicated hours of their weekends to get our fields and concession stand ready with some power cleaning!  Thank you!
So, with the opening of our fields on July 6th, we will be opening up registration tonight, June 24th, on our website and it will remain open until Sunday, June 28th, 11:59pm.  If you wish to get back on the field, please register as soon as possible as it will affect team creation and league and clinic design.  There are descriptions for each offering we have, but they may be subject to change depending on numbers.  We will be able to address that on June 29th.  So, thank you in advance for registering!
Our plans for running a safe program will be our Return to Play Plan which is currently on our site.  In the next couple of weeks, we will be readdressing some of the safety measures so they align with the opening of our complex according to our governing bodies and try to make our experience as normal as we possibly can.
Our concession stand and bathrooms will be open, but will have restrictions as well according to our plan.  Please follow all of these guidelines.
We still have some work to do to get the fields ready.  If you wish to help, please shoot me an email and I can get you to the right location!  
I am looking very forward to grabbing a burger and fries and seeing our fields in use again.  I hope you can share in this time of kids, community and America’s oldest and favorite pastime!
If you have any questions or concerns, please, don’t hesitate to send them to me! 
See you soon, 
Tom Caputo
Fairport Little League President
