    Hurricane Irma update

    September 21 - ACTIVITIES WILL RESUME AT CANDYLAND PARK THIS WEEKEND!!
    WE ARE PLAYING BALL SATURDAY AT CANDYLAND!!!  Facilities are in acceptable condition, and while we will have some parking and access restrictions (to be explained later), CANDYLAND PARK will be open for games this weekend!!

    Look for more information on parking on access.  

    For now, relax, take a deep breath, and have a terrific time this weekend!  See you at the park!!!

    September 15 - NO ACTIVITIES at Candyland Park through next Friday, September 22.  We currently plan to play games starting

    September 23.  Games will be as scheduled, and we will re-schedule the missed games to be played toward the end of the season.

    For BASEBALL Rookie, Minor, Major and Babe Ruth divisions, we have set up games with the West Volusia Athletic Club (WVAC) in Debary.  A downloadable schedule of all games and some general information is available above.  The schedule is being input into your team page, but is not yet published.

    September 12 - NO ACTIVITES (games or practices) until Saturday at the earliest.  Plan to play games Saturday, as scheduled, unless we inform you differently.

    We hope you, your family, and friends have already recovered from the storm.  If you're still suffering through clean up, no power, or any other challenge we wish you a speedy resolution.

    SEPTEMBER 6 - Opening Day will NOT be held on Saturday, September 9.

     

    Thursday evening games are ON AS SCHEDULED. The Babe Ruth division game has been re-scheduled to 9/29 due to some school conflicts, but all other games will proceed as planned.

     

    All Longwood city events, including those at CANDYLAND PARK, have been cancelled through the weekend. This means there will be no activities or games Saturday, and planned Opening Day activities will not take place. Current plans allow resumption of activities early or middle of next week, but we definitely will NOT play Monday night games.

     

    While we will definitely have team pictures at some point, the other events and activities normally associated with Opening Day are difficult to re-schedule. Your volunteers put a lot of time and energy into this event...the date is set months in advance so we can coordinate vendors. promote activities, script presentations, etc. We will examine the options and notify you if we plan to set up a similar event this season.

     

    Thank you all for your patience and understanding. We are all preparing for the worst and hoping for the best. Take the time to prepare your family and we wish you all the best.

      Our History

      Longwood Babe Ruth, an ALL volunteer, not-for-profit organization, was founded in 1988.

      The league has a World Series win, multiple State, Regional & District tournament wins, and consistently strong All-Star teams contribute to the long list of accomplishments.

      The true measures of this League are the endless hours of volunteer time and our sponsors -- without you, we would have surely failed many years ago! Thanks to all past and present LBR members!
