Well it’s May and we are still not on the ball fields. Little League International has cancelled the 2020 Little League World Series and Regional Tournaments, the first time ever since the LLWS began in 1947. Closer to home, the City of Bridgeport has canceled all sports permits at least through May 31st, which will leave us too little time to provide a meaningful softball and baseball experience. With few options, we have decided to postpone the start of our season until August 1st. We are working hard to have a full schedule of games that will run until mid-late October.
If you signed up for the spring season, then you are already registered for the summer season. If you do NOT wish to be registered for the summer, please contact us ASAP to remove your name from our summer list. If you have not previously registered or received a refund for the 2020 season and would like to re-register for summer ball, there will be a window in the next few weeks where you can sign up online. All players who participate in the summer season will receive $30 off the 2021 spring registration.
We miss the sounds of spring in Black Rock, which have included the crack of the bat and the cheers from teammates, families and fans since our league’s inception in 1954. While we do not know when the pandemic will end or what the new normal will look like, we are committed to keeping our kids and our families safe.
Thank you for your understanding.

$25 Community Cares Campaign
One of the things people love most about Black Rock is the Community. So in the spirit of giving back to this community we are creating a community cares. Let’s see how many people in our community can donate 25 dollars to Black Rock Little League.
Sponsor a Team This Season! – $300
Help give Bridgeport children a positive thing to do this spring. By sponsoring a team, your donation covers the cost of uniforms, allows for needed scholarships and helps defray equipment costs.

We always try to keep costs down to make sure that all children who wish to play can do so. We need community support and donations to provide our kids with quality equipment and facilities.
