The Central Connecticut Fall Baseball League is disbanding, organizers announced Wednesday.
In the announcement, the CCFBL president and the Board said they were disbanding the league citing liability concerns and a lack of time and resources to address those.
“Our legal counsel has advised us of areas that would need to be addressed to reduce the amount of potential liability to CCFBL, its administrators, coaches, participating organizations/leagues, and others, but addressing these areas would require more time, effort, and expense than would be manageable,” the letter reads.
Steve Bickford the league facilitator, said the decision is effective immediately, as this season has already wrapped up.
The league was designed for players under 17 to improve their skills and worked with town little leagues across central Connecticut to offer a fall season for young players. Bickford said each year there were approximately 80 to 100 teams, with 12 to 16 kids on each team. The teams came from 10 different towns.
The season typically started in late August and runs for about six weekends.
