We are very excited to announce that Moose Jaw Little League will be able to start the 2020 baseball season. The recent announcement on Phase 4.1 of the Government’s Re-Open plan notes that baseball is able to resume and as a result, the 2020 season will run from July 6 to August 28.
At this point, games are not allowed, but we are able to train, practice and scrimmage within the team. This will be the focus for the start of the season while preparing for when games can resume. Other notable changes at this point are as follows, but will be updated as we proceed:
The most notable change will be in regards to cleanliness and disinfecting, which will include the following at a minimum:
Members who are sick, symptomatic or in a risk category (e.g. international travel and / or contact with confirmed or probable COVID-19 case) will not be allowed to participate or attend. Individuals should use the Government of Saskatchewan’s online self-assessment tool to help determine if the illness may be COVID-19.
We will be providing more detailed information regarding the revised rules, requirements and planning in the coming weeks. We will soon begin working to select teams and are working to communicate each player’s team, coach and schedule by July 3.
We understand that this approach and timeline are not for everyone. As always, we will provide refunds subject to a $25 fee to cover our fixed administrative costs related running the league.
We also understand that there may be others who are now interested in playing baseball. We want you to know that registration has been reopened and will continue to be open until June 25.
We again want to express our appreciation of your support, understanding and patience as we all work through these very unprecedented times.
Take care, be safe and we’ll see you on the field!!!
Moose Jaw Little League Board of Directors
