    State Of Ohio Rules

    Our country is living though a trying time with the emergence of the Coronavirus.  We are fortunate to have the opportunity to play our baseball season.  However, because of vital health concerns, the State of Ohio, local municipalities and health departments have important guidelines for teams, spectators and officials to follow.  Please click on the link below to read our current 2020 Guidelines for safe play:

    https://coronavirus.ohio.gov/static/responsible/Baseball-Softball.pdf

    Remember: we can't achieve these mandates without your leadership and cooperation.  Let's work together to make this season great!

     

     

     

    Covid-19 Update (April 12)

    Buckeye Baseball League Covid-19 Update

    April 12

    Everyone is anxious to “get things back to normal” and get our 2020 Baseball Season underway.  Please remain patient as we don’t know when this crisis and subsequent social distancing order will end.  As of now, our State and Federal leadership will be evaluating these matters for May 1st.  However, we cannot count on the speculation that social policies will change as of that date. 

    The Buckeye Baseball League will be ready to move forward in accordance with the social guidelines established once we receive an update, a change or we get the permission to begin play.  Like All Americans, we are eagerly waiting for this official update.

    I suggest that each Team continue to encourage their players to do what they can on their own.  As you know, it will be beneficial for the players to be as ready as possible in order to begin once that date is determined.  I know this is a challenge, but it will be important so that each Team can be prepared quickly.

    Please try not to get caught up in speculation that is rampant about what other Teams, Organizations and other Sports may be doing.  I have heard many plans in anticipation of hopeful changes to our current state, but those plans are based on unknown information and hope. Therefore, making plans at this time is a guess.  Let’s not guess and give our participants disappointing, false hope.

    If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact me at any time.

    Postponement Update---COVID-19

    As you know, we have been backed up to May 1 as of now as a result of the crisis that we are facing.  The health of the community is the only priority at this time.  Let's wait it out and see where we are in a few weeks.  Plans are in place for various start dates.

    At this time once again, I am asking you NOT  to do any rescheduling yet.  We don't know what is going to happen and any rescheduling is likely to be a waste of your time, effort and energy.  Please do NOT do any rescheduling yet.

    Coronavirus Update

    Coronavirus Disease Update for Buckeye Baseball League Teams

    Obviously, there is an air of uncertainty within our great Nation as to what will happen with this serious health threat.  All decisions made by this League will be made based on what is best for our participants.  With that stated, because of the uncertainty that we are facing, I am not going to lay out plan for you at this time for fear that the plan may have to be changed.  My belief is that in a week or two, things will be illuminated for all of us as the time passes.

    I was called with a rumor that the Buckeye Baseball League will cancel its season for 2020.  At the point of hearing that, I can tell you that I had NOT even considered that.  At this point, cancelling the season is NOT even on my radar.  Cancelling the season would be the very last resort and I don't believe that will happen.

    Be patient.  Take care of the players and your family by being smart during this vulnerable time.  As things change within our society due to this serious challenge, more and succinct updates will be provided.
