Little League seasons officially cancelled

NORWAY — A decision that was hanging in the balance due to the coronavirus pandemic was made and announced Saturday afternoon. The three area Little League organizations have announced the cancellation of their regular seasons.

Here is the statement that was posted on the Norway Area Little League’s official Facebook page:

“It is with great disappointment that we announce the Norway Area Little League 2020 baseball and softball season is canceled. It is due to the unprecedented circumstances of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

While this was not an easy decision to make, there are still too many unknowns about the virus, and the safety of our kids, parents, and fans was the overwhelming factor. Our league’s safety is of utmost importance to us.

We would like to thank all of the parents and players for their patience as they waited on our decision. The Norway Area Little League board worked very closely with both Kingsford Area Little League and Iron Mountain Area Little League boards to make a determination on canceling the season.

Over the next few weeks, the league will be working to refund those who have paid their league fees. We ask for your patience as we navigate through this process and we look forward to coming back next season.”

There will be more reported on this development in the coming days.
