McHenry County's premier in-house and travel baseball and softball program for boys and girls ages 5-18 years old

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update - May 5th

May 5, 2020

Since the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, the LITHYAA Board has spent considerable time drafting a plan to provide baseball and softball to our membership this spring/summer, a huge challenge given the daily changes in the information being released by media outlets, government agencies, and health organizations. Given what we know, and with every bit of optimism we have for the summer, we are planning for a mid-June start date.  

There is a lot of planning required for any season, and this season is even more complex given the fluidity of timelines and information as well as the compressed time we will have to get it all done.  These things include:

  • Coordination with the Village of Lake in the Hills and the Health Department on proper safety protocols for players and spectators.
  • Coordination with our vendors and volunteers to have fields, uniforms and facilities ready to go on relatively short order.
  • Forming teams and scheduling practices as soon as we are cleared to move ahead.
  • Scheduling games, many of which with neighboring leagues who, like us, are holding on for a green light.

As always, we appreciate your patience and your continued participation.  The season may get off to a rough start, but if we all pull together and lend a hand, we will definitely hit our goal of SUMMER FUN AND BASEBALL FOR ALL!
