COVID-19 Safety Guidelines

The following safety guidelines for the COVID-19 virus have been imposed by the fields we play on and must be followed. 

It is each player's responsibility to follow these guidelines or risk suspension. 

  1. "Social distancing" when not on the field is required. You may bring a chair and sit in foul territory at least 6 feet apart. If you choose to sit in the dugout, you must be at least 6 feet away from another person. If you are unable to sit 6 feet apart while in the dugout, masks are required. As a result of this rule, foul territory is now dead territory.
  2. Only the catcher and umpire must wear masks.
  3. There can be NO tag plays. Every play is a force play. Once you turn toward a base (except 1B) or attempt to advance, you must go to that base or be called out. This means NO rundowns.
  4. Unfortunately, there will be NO handshakes at the end of the game. No high fives. You may be creative and acknowledge the other team without any contacts. Please leave the field immediately after the game separately - NO congregating after games.
  5. Fans must sit 6 feet apart or wear face masks if unable to sit 6 feet apart.
  6. If managers are called to meetings with umpires before games, everyone must were face masks at that meeting.
  7. Bats - If a player wishes to share or borrow a bat, they should wear gloves on both hands and get permission from the player who owns the bat.
  8. Each player should bring hand sanitizer to every game and use it when appropriate.
