Status as of May 22
As many of you may have heard, youth baseball has been cleared to practice on June 1st under MDH Guidance (https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/schools/youthsports.pdf), with games expected to begin starting June 15th. This is a long email to address as many questions / concerns as we can. The first section of the email is a summary with further details below.
Please refer to MBL’s current update MBL 2020 Back to the Diamond Update.
We know this has been a unique year and frustrating for everyone. Your patience has been greatly appreciated. As we have a very tight timeline to get players back on the field as quickly as possible, please note that date cutoffs are firm.
Out of respect for the summer schedules of families, we will not further delay tryouts. We are expecting either a 14-game season through the end of July or a 16-game season into August. We will try to communicate specifics before tryouts.
9U-15U Registration close, EOD Saturday, May 30th.
If you would like a refund, please request this through email to NewPragueBaseball@gmail.com by the end of the day on Saturday, May 30th. After May 30th, refunds will NOT be given for 9U-15U unless a decision is made to cancel the season.
