With the release of each of PHMDC’s new orders, WMLL determines if the special COVID rules & requirements that will be enforced at the WMLL ballpark & WMLL events need to be modified.  No such modifications are needed based on Order #16.

The Board will continue to closely monitor PHMDC requirements as well as information from Little League, the CDC, etc.  If PHMDC orders change, WMLL will adjust plans accordingly & provide updates to WMLL players, families and volunteers in a timely fashion
