On 05-28-20 the BDYBS Board met to discuss the status of the 2020 season. Decisions were made via full Board vote (14 members) after thoughtful discussion on the most up to date information available, to include the approval from the City of Beaver Dam to utilize their facilities that was received earlier the day. We also reviewed State, County, City, CDC, and Little League guidelines and recommendations concerning youth sports, specifically baseball and softball. The following was decided:
-Four teams per age level at a minimum for baseball, less for softball.
-Practices can start on or after June 15th, with games starting on or after June 29th.
-5-week season would consist of 8 games and playoffs (up to 2 additional games).
-Season would end by late July.
-Practices can start on or after June 15th (possible exception for 13/14 teams)
-Tournament play can begin on or after June 26th.
-Season can be extended into August with Board approval.
In order to establish the viability of conducting City League, a brief participation acknowledgement survey was emailed to families of players ages 7-12. Older players and travel players will be contacted via phone from a Board member. Travel players will also need to complete emailed agreement that pertains to City League.
It is our hope a play/no play decision on City League and Travel can be made in the next week to 10 days.
