FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
California Collegiate League Status and Statement on COVID-19
[Update: April 9, 2020]
Los Angeles, CA -- As indicated by our previous statement on March 15, 2020, the franchise members of the California Collegiate League have continued to monitor the effects of COVID-19 on our respective local communities in an effort to discern a 2020 season, or part thereof. Following our April 19th league-wide conference call, the CCL, for the time-being, will refrain from any decisions to alter course on the 2020 season. We will continue analyzing the latest news and observe the latest recommendations from the various government and health authorities. We will proceed with cautious optimism and explore multiple ways to conduct a season while understanding that the health and well-being of our players, coaches, staff, and fans is paramount.
As we all anticipate what this pandemic will mean for the future, not just in terms of sports, but life in general, the CCL will continue to pivot, and at some point, hopefully sooner than later, our 10 teams will be out on the diamond. To everyone who is facing a future without a person you love, we are deeply sorry for your loss; and to anyone who is battling this virus, you are in our hearts and minds.
Founded in 1993, the California Collegiate League is one of America's premiere college summer baseball destinations. Ten teams canvas the great state of California. During June and July, top college baseball players compete for the MLB Academy Barons, Arroyo Seco Saints, Conejo Oaks, Healdsburg Prune Packers, Lincoln Potters, Orange County Riptide, San Luis Obispo Blues, Santa Barbara Foresters, Solano Mudcats, and Walnut Creek Crawdads.
