Two youth baseball leagues will not head to the diamond this summer due to COVID-19 concerns.
According to Sturgeon Bay Little League Baseball Secretary Heidi Kratcha, both its league and the Sevastopol Mighty Pioneers baseball league have canceled their youth baseball seasons. The cancellation affects the kids that play across five different levels in the two leagues. All registrations already submitted will be refunded for both Sevastopol and Sturgeon Bay.

Dear Mighty Pioneers,
It is with great disappointment that the Mighty Pioneers Board of Directors would like to announce the cancellation of all our spring/summer baseball and softball associated leagues.
The decision comes only after careful consideration from the public health department, neighboring leagues, and the trend of similar local, state, and national events already being cancelled for summer. We also worked closely with the Sturgeon Bay Boys Little League and support their decision to cancel the baseball season. No sport is worth putting anyone’s child, family, or community more at risk.
The following leagues are cancelled for 20’-21’:
- Lil’ Rootie Toots T-Ball & Coach Pitch League
- 8u & 10 Mighty Pioneer Baseball Tournament Teams
- 10u, 12u, and 14u Mighty Pioneer Softball Tournament Teams
- Girls Lakeshore League (previously Sturgeon Bay Girls Little League)
All registrations will be reimbursed. This process could take up to three to four weeks according to or registration software, Team Snap and board availability. If your child participates on a boys tournament team, you will be contacted separately regarding your reimbursement process. We ask for your patience in advance.
Just like you, we had lots of excitement and hopes for many of the new baseball and softball opportunities for our Pioneers this summer. The good news is, we will be ready to roll next spring better than ever before! If you have questions, please e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org .
