COVID-19 Response – Follow Up 04/07/20

I hope this message finds you well and enjoying the beautiful and positive turn in our weather.  I don’t know about you, but this weather makes me excited for the multitude of outside activities and with bias, spring season baseball.  With that said, I wanted to again follow up with everyone on what we are currently thinking about in regards to the upcoming season(s).

  • We continue to follow the city’s lead and associated recommendations (shelter in place)
  • We our continuing with our suspension of in-person activities – At this time, this mainly affects our travel ball program (Mayhem) which normally would be practicing and preparing for the upcoming tournament trail
  • Our first scheduling challenge will likely be our Minor Division / Swing Player Evaluations that are scheduled to take place the week of April 27 – We are currently taking a wait and see approach, but suspect that we will need to push this event back at least 1-2 weeks (maybe longer)
  • Likely we will need to modify our overall schedule (practices and games), but will do everything in our power to provide an adequate and enjoyable season
  • Based on the possibility of an abbreviated season, we will look at any and all options that could include playing more days a week than our normally allotted 2-days a week
  • At this time, we are not expecting to hold weekend activities (excluding our Jamboree)
  • We are looking at possible changes to our league by-laws, rules and/or general baseball etiquette that would help with the transition to our possible new norm
  • Registration is open and requires no money down at this time (all new registrations added to a wait-list)
  • Discounted Early Bird pricing ends this Sunday, April 12th.

I do hope that this information sharing is of benefit to you and if there is anything we can do as a league or if you have any questions, comments or concerns please feel free to reach out to any of the officers of myself directly using the email address below.

To conclude, I can’t stress enough that it all starts with registrations and that you must register to guarantee a spot in our program while remembering at this time that your registration requires no money down.  Once we have enough registrations and when the all clear has been given we will release registrations to an active status where you will then go back into our portal and pay.  SO PLEASE REGISTER NOW.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation and be safe.
