NYBL House Season Letter - Register thru June 8th

Hello NYBL families,

I hope you are all staying safe as we work our way through these challenging times.  
Based on today’s announcement by Governor Whitmer, we are re-opening our house league registrations for the summer 2020 season.   
Our Board of Directors have already created a tentative schedule so we will be prepared to begin our season as soon as possible.  With today’s Executive Order, our Board will be having additional planning meetings in the next few days and more information will be distributed soon.   

We are tentatively planning on closing registration on June 8th.  This date will allow us time for team practices and uniform ordering before a late June/early July season start.  We are planning on a full season including playoffs and All-Star games with a modified schedule that would run into August.  Again, these dates are speculative and are all subject to change.  Because of the late start to the season there will be no player evaluations this season.  After the registration period closes, NYBL Division Directors will create rosters and coaching placements based on the final registration numbers on June 8th. 

The health and safety of our players, coaches, umpires and spectators is our priority.  The NYBL Board of Directors is reviewing safety guidelines, procedures and recommendations by the State of Ohio (which allowed youth baseball to restart in May) and the USSSA Post COVID-19 Task Force for plans we can implement when we return to the field.  Before team practices start we will distribute to our coaches and parents a NYBL safety plan that outlines the recommended actions to keep everyone involved with our program as safe as possible. Note that NYBL will require all participants to sign a COVID-19 waiver and under recommended guidelines players will not be able to share equipment as in the past.

On behalf of the Board of Directors I would like to thank you for your continued support of NYBL.  We appreciate your patience as we navigate through unchartered waters and as always please contact me with any questions you may have regarding the upcoming season.
