Update: 5/15/20 10:00pm

We are so excited to be back on the fields with our players! 

Please remember that we have strict guidelines to follow while using the ball fields during the COVID restrictions. Please remember that we are only implementing the orders that we are being given and that as soon as the State and/or County updates these orders, we will update our guidelines as well. If these orders are not followed, we will not be able to continue to practice on the fields. Please don’t spoil it for everyone by not adhering to these important guidelines. 

  • If you or your player feels sick, has a fever, been out of the state/country in the past 2 weeks, or have been exposed to COVID-19, please message your coach and do NOT come to the fields. 

  • Currently, our park hours are 9:00-7:00 under the executive order. 

  • One of the coaches will meet parents at the gates. The coach will tell you which gate he or she will be waiting at. 

  • Parents should make sure the coach has a contact number for you, in case your player needs something while they are practicing. 

  • Only players and rostered coaches (with background checks) will be allowed on the fields. Players should not hang out in the dugout. At no time should a field ever exceed 20 people. 

  • All individuals shall maintain social distancing of a minimum of 6 feet distance between individuals. 

  • Practices MUST end on time. Fields MUST be cleared before the next team can enter. 

  • No one is allowed in the “common areas” between the fields at any time. This includes all areas of grass and bleachers plus, all areas around the field fences inside the park. 

  • T-Ball practices will be held on fields 5 & 6 to allow parents the opportunity of being closer to their players while they wait in the parking lot. 

  • If there are ANY concerns, please try to speak to your coach first. If you don’t resolve your concern, please reach out to Tricia @ 228-669-3812 via text. If you want her to call you to discuss an issue, please message her and ask her to call you. 

We understand that everyone may not be comfortable practicing at this time. Please communicate your concerns to your coach. Because we already paid for our Cal Ripken insurance, charter fees, and uniforms, we are not able to offer refunds or credits. If you think you might be comfortable playing games later in the season, after the state/county changes the number of people that are allowed on the fields, then communicate that with your coach. We can leave your player on the roster to return later in the season. We are trying to be as understanding and accommodating as we possibly can. 

Update: 5/4/20 3:20pm

 

Good afternoon! We are excited that Governor Reeves made an exciting announcement about allowing our players the opportunity to practice baseball. We are currently working with the Harrison County Board of Supervisors to open our fields located at Clarence Johnson Memorial Park. Once we have the details and the approval from them, we will pass it all along to the head coaches. Please be patient and we will be in touch soon.

Thank you,

Tricia Switzer
