Poarch Creek Indians officials decided last week decided to cancel the 2020 summer baseball, softball, wee-ball and t-ball seasons due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 situation.
Despite all Poarch Creek baseball diamond activities being closed, players who have already signed up for the 2020 summer season may still have a small glimmer of hope, as Atmore Cal Ripken Baseball League is still hanging onto hopes of playing a modified season.
According to a spokesman for Poarch Creek Indians Recreation Department, all PCI players who had previously signed up for summer baseball will have the opportunity to play with teams in Atmore, should the season resume at a later date.
According to ACRBL Director Murray Johnson, the decision to resume play has not yet been made.
With several other teams and cities having cancelled their seasons and the future of the coronavirus pandemic still unknown, the Atmore leagues have yet to make a decision on whether or not the season will push forward.
“Players, families and fan safety is our priority,” Johnson said last week. “We have not made a decision yet. Hopes are high for resuming baseball, but we are still undecided at this time.”
