Covid-19 (Coronavirus) Update

The Covid-19 (coronavirus) pandemic is rapidly changing and impacting communities all across the country and globe. The health and safety of our players, coaches, volunteers, families, and fans is Folsom American Little League's #1 priority. Folsom American Little League is a member of California District 54 Little League and the greater Little League International organization. As our community and our baseball community works through this unprecedented situation, the FALL Board of Directors is committed to keeping players, parents, managers, and coaches updated on the impacts to our season.

November 1: Folsom American Little League is currently accepting registration for the 2021 Spring season. No fees will be collected at this time. If we are able to have a season, fees will be collected prior to team formation. We hope to know more about what the season might look like by early January.

We thank you for your patience. Believe us... we want nothing more than to safely return our players to the fields and fill the bleachers with fans! Just think of this as a really long global rainout and remember that the sun always comes back out. Stay safe and keep those reps up!

For Players

What can I do at home to keep my baseball skills sharp?

This is easy! Keeping your baseball skills sharp is as simple as just going out to your backyard and playing catch for 30 mins a day.  If you are feeling like you want to do more, see Big Al’s Coaching.  Big Al is offering a FREE online program that will help you not only keep the skills you have, but build new ones as well.

What can I do to stay in shape?

It is very important that every player gets some physical activity in some form EVERYDAY.  This could be a 30 min jog, 45 min bike ride, even a walk for 45 mins.  Stretching, even jumping jacks, will contribute to not only build a health body, but a healthy mind. 

Are there any private lessons that I can take?

Hard 90 Baseball and Walbeck Baseball Academy are offering training options while kids are at home... check them out. 

I really miss watching baseball. What can I do?

We get it... it’s very upsetting the MLB and NCAA seasons are on hold until further notice.  But you can still get your fill of baseball this spring, here are a few ideas:

1.     Youtube is full of great highlights, special moments, and bloopers galore.
2.     MLB Network always has something baseball related on... catch replays of historic games such as previous World Series and record setting performances.
3.     Baseball video games are always a fun way to get in the baseball mode and they can provide a fun way to improve your Baseball IQ. (Yes... we just told you to go play video games... don't tell your parents.)

For Parents

Will we have a season and when will it take place?

We hope so... it just might look a little different. FALL is working internally as well as with other leagues in District 54 to have a Spring 2021 season. We learned that Little Leagues across the country, especially those in cold climates, generally don't even start their season until May. If we need to start activities such as tryouts and team selection a little later than our typical January start, it isn't out of the norm for Little League as a whole. We hope to have direction from Little League International and District 54 by early January and will be able to plan our season at that time. 

If in-person school is cancelled for the rest of the year, will that impact if players can return to baseball?

No. FALL will work with District 54 and state and local health officials to determine when it is safe to return to the fields. We do not need to follow the school district's decision.  

For Managers/Coaches/ Team Parents

Please understand everything that has been put in place is for the safety of our players. As managers,coaches, and team parents, you are a key part of our program.  We expect you to help keep our players safe by suspending ALL team activities until further notice.  We will not tolerate any Manager or Coach that puts the safety of our players at risk.

Should I put together an “off the record” practice or scrimmage prior to the official start of the season?

No. All the guidance FALL has been given has been to suspend all activities.  Having any practice or scrimmage goes against that guidance.  Also realize, when you hold a non-approved game/practice/scrimmage, FALL's insurance will not cover you or the players.  Any liability issues would fall on you personally or on your parents.  We believe it simply isn't a risk worth taking.  Please respect the guidance that has been given.
