COVID-19 Update - May 1

Parents, Players, and Coaches,

In light of the Governor's press conference on Monday, April 27, we are sad to announce that the Central Iowa Recreation League and North Story Baseball have decided to cancel all baseball and softball for 1st - 6th graders during the 2020 season.  Making this decision was extremely difficult, however, canceling the season now, will allow for each community to move forward, if they so choose, in discussing or planning what could be offered in their specific community, once we are allowed to participate in group activities again.

In regards to refunds, please understand that each community will be handling refunds within their own respective community.  More information on refunds will be available in the coming days from your community.  Please be patient with refunds as they will likely take time to process.

These are trying times and knowing how much work went into getting the season ready and not being able to actually see it come to fruition, hurts.  We know that many are going to be disappointed, upset, and discouraged because of this news, however, I know that we are resilient and will come back, better, stronger, and with even more passion.  

When the first pitch is thrown, when you hear the crack of the bat and the crowd cheers, remember, it is...For Love of the Game.
