2020 RETURN TO PLAY BASEBALL/SOFTBALL SEASON
Players and Parents! We are excited to welcome you to the baseball & softball diamond. Baseball/Softball is back and we’ve been working hard to make it happen. As we return to the field, our mission remains to provide our community with fun, affordable, and competitive youth baseball & softball. As safety is our Number 1 concern, we are implementing several changes and instituting new guidelines for players, coaches, umpires, spectators to meet state guidelines due to COVID-19.
We are providing you with information regarding the start of the league. You can download the information in PDF format, or visit the webpages to read online.
