"We want to open up this league with as many different people as possible..." commented league commissioner Ben Fiore ahead of the decision to postpone the season's start. "...this is our first major event as a league, so we are trying to get the word out as quickly and as effectively as possible while bringing in enough players to sustain a healthy and competitve league. So far this has not been the case, and we are working every single day to ensure that we meet our goal and bring competitive wiffleball to the state of Connecticut."
The league will provide more information in the coming days. If you are interested in registering or want to learn more about the Fall Developmental League, click here.
