The Palo Alto Babe Ruth baseball organization hopes to open its 15U season on schedule on May 16 and the District 52 Little League all-star tournament remains on the docket for late June.

Palo Alto’s Prep League, for 13-15 year-olds not playing on a high school team, is in limbo as its season is currently on hold until at least April 10. Prep League teams have held several clinics and were supposed to start their season on March 7.

The Palo Alto Babe Ruth board of directors met over the weekend and will continue to monitor the situation concerning the COVID-19 pandemic.

The PABR board of managers will continue to provide update and is in the process of adding a FAQ section on its website.

The various local Little Leagues (Alpine-West Menlo, Menlo-Atherton, Palo Alto, Ravenswood) have all suspended play in accordance with existing city, county and state guidelines.
