As of this update, the League is still on hold. While the Governor allowed baseball to resume activities this past Tuesday, area school facilities are still closed until June 30. The League has spoken with all fields that the League uses on a regular basis and those coaches are awaiting for their respective school administrations to make a decision on guidelines that would allow use of school facilities by outside groups.
Once the facilities are available, the new player workout/draft will be scheduled and the League will move to schedule Opening Day and the rest of the game schedule.
This reminds of my time in the USMC: Stand by to Stand by!
With Baseball able to return on May 26, 2020 with guidelines, the league is working on a scheduled to return to the field. Team Managers held a virtual meeting this past Sunday with a tentative plan on the workout/draft along with Opening Day.
The biggest issue right now is field availability. There is confusion if fields will be open on May 26, 2020. The latest information has school facilities/fields closed until June 30, 2020. Once this issue is clear, the league will be able to move forward with a schedule for games.
Tentative Plan is to host a workout/draft on about June 13/14. Opening day would either be June 28 or July depending on field availability.
The Governor was presented with a plan by an advisory group from across the state in an effort to allow for recreational activities. This plan was presented last weekend or Monday, but no timeline or guidelines have been released.
The league will continue to monitor the situation. Once a timeline and guidelines are released for baseball activities to resume, the league will schedule a workout/draft for new players and proceed to release the 2020 schedule.
