2021 8u, 11u, 13u ROSTERS
After careful consideration and collaboration with the City of East Peoria coupled with the evaluation of recent decisions made by the IESA, IHSA, collegiate, professional, and other area youth baseball programs, the East Peoria Community Baseball (EPCB) board has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 In-house baseball season.
This decision was not made lightly. In accordance with the EPCB bylaws our main objective is “to manage the program with safety being our # 1 priority”. Given all the uncertainties surrounding COVID-19 and the potential health impact to our players, coaches, umpires, concession workers, and players families, we simply didn’t believe we could meet this objective in good faith. No one loves the game of baseball more than the EPCB Board and its member families, but we can’t put baseball above anyone’s health and well-being no matter how disappointing it may be.
We will be offering full refunds to everyone who has already registered. If you registered on-line the refund will be applied to the card used for the original payment. If you registered in-person we will be mailing checks to the address provided. We have a lot to work through and it may take 2-3 weeks to complete the refund process. We appreciate everyone’s patience.
We are also very hopeful that conditions will improve and we will be able to provide opportunities later this summer/fall to play baseball in some form or fashion. We have initiated discussions about the possibilities of having “open field nights”, clinics, or “sand lot games” run by EPCB free of charge to get kids back playing the game they love. We’re still working through those details and we’ll keep everyone posted as things become clearer.
Our travel teams are in the process of working through plans for the remainder of their seasons. These teams have more flexibility given players have already been selected, uniforms are in hand, and games already scheduled which allows them to begin play immediately should current conditions change. Each travel coach will be working with their team’s parents to lay out specific next steps. Aligned with this, as of today we have not yet canceled our travel Father’s Day Tournament. We are intending to make a final decision on the tournament the first week of June.
