Update from the President - 5/29/2020
Hello everyone,
I hope all are doing very well and everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend!  I am writing to let you know we, as a Fairport Little League organization, have submitted a plan to Robert Duffy, the Finger Lakes region coordinator, our “Return to Play Plan.”  He has received it, thought it looked great, and passed it on up the chain to those who make decisions.  I have included it as a PDF.  Please read it as they are guidelines we all will follow as we re-open.
I want to thank Dan Adams, Tim Ackerman, Chuck DiPiazza, Steve Gossin, Mike McDonnell, Mike Romano, Jason Rucker, Brian Short, and Tom Halter for dedicating their Saturday on May 23rd in Phase 2 of our High Acres Extraction.  We moved the bleachers to the Lyndon Road complex.  Phase 3, our last phase, will occur when we clear out the warehouse of our gear.  We will let everyone know when that will occur.
On that same line, tomorrow, May 30th, at 8:00am (or later if that suits you, as we will be there for a few hours) at the Lyndon Road complex, we are looking to make the finishing touches on our fields so they are ready to go the minute we get the thumbs up.  We will be power washing the concession stand, the dugouts, repairing fence, and cleaning out the dugouts.  If you wish to help, please come out.  If you have a gas powered leaf blower, that would be especially helpful.  Make sure to have a mask for the dust.
Other than that, we are still sticking to our June 20th date.  On or before June 20th, we plan on playing a full season of baseball.  After June 20th, we will be playing an abbreviated season of some sort.  Hopefully, with our plan submitted, we can still meet our timeline.
Thanks again for doing all you do in keeping your families safe and, hopefully, we will have more news for you in the upcoming weeks.
Please take care of yourselves and I hope the good weather continues so all can get outside and have the kids get some ball in some way, shape, or form.
Please contact me with questions.  I will do my best to answer.
Stay safe,
Tom Caputo
