Middleboro Little League 2020 Season
In Re: Middleboro Little League 2020 Season
Dear Parents and Guardians:
We are writing as a follow-up to our past correspondence in regard to the COVID-19 Pandemic. As I am sure you are well aware, we have been meeting regularly as a Board to discuss the heath crisis and how we could possibly have a baseball season. The Governor, just yesterday, released guidelines as to how and when youth sports activities could resume. Those guidelines are still being worked on and the implementation date is subject to further delay. The earliest that a game could be played would be July 6, 2020. We as a board gave much consideration as to what a season would look like, what safety considerations would need to be implemented and how social distancing would take place. Our first and primary concern was the safety of the children. With that as our primary focus, we determined that we could not safely and effectively have a 2020 Little League season. We realize this will sadden a lot of the players and parents alike. It was not an easy decision, but one we felt was necessary in these unimaginably trying times. We will endeavor to have baseball clinics during the summer if it can be accomplished in a safe fashion. We will also still have a Celebration for the departing 12-year old’s who were deprived of their final Little League season. Details will be announced later in the summer.
As to those of you who paid, the monies will be applied to next season’s registration. Those 12-year old’s who are aging out of Little League will be able to play in our new Senior Division(ages 13-15) next year and apply the registration to our new league. If anyone wants a refund as opposed to a credit, please contact us and we will issue a refund by check.
Just wanted to email everyone to let you all know that we do still plan on having 2020 Little League and Senior League Seasons - we're just not sure of start or end dates at this point. Once we get cleared to play we'll put together a schedule for all divisions.
I hope everyone is doing well, and just because we can't get together as teams yet, shouldn't prevent you from getting some practice in! Grab a ball and throw in the backyard or down the fields. Reach out to any of the Majors division coaches if you need any ideas for ways to practice around your house! You can find their names/emails under the Teams menu.
This is a good opportunity to remind everyone that we do have an automatic defibrillator (AED) in the concession stand, should such an event happen at our fields that warrants its use.
AEDs are designed to be very easy to use as they walk you through their use step by step. Part of our coach safety meeting each year includes an overview on the use of the AED. If you’re interested in learning more about using an AED, you can find various instructional videos online. AEDs are becoming common in many public buildings, so having some familiarity with them is a good idea.
While the AED is a great resource to have on hand, the first thing to do in an emergency is call 911 to get trained professionals on site as quickly as possible.
You are reminded that tobacco use of any kind is not allowed within 25' of any ball field, dugout, or fan seating/viewing area; anywhere between Community and Memorial Field, including the batting cages; or within 50' of the concession stand or pavilion/grill area.
Anyone smoking in the parking lots or other areas not explicitly prohibited above are asked to please clean-up after yourself and not leave cigarette butts on the ground.
Your cooperation is greatly appreciated for the cleanliness of our fields and the health of our kids.
