Due to the Governor’s Phase II restrictions, the Recreation Committee and the City of Lumberton recommend not to open outdoor sports at this time. LYBA is still hopeful that we can have a baseball season once restrictions are lifted. We anticipate that we will be able to play baseball from August through October. The LYBA board would like to gauge the interest of parents and coaches regarding playing baseball during the late summer through fall time frame. Please take a moment to complete the poll below.
