We have been very fortunate to have a baseball season this year, however COVID19 is still very much with us, and the following protocols will have to be followed by Coaches, Players and Parents during this tournament.

  1. Ensure that your players and Assistant Coaches are sanitizing their hands after every innings.  Hand sanitising machines will be provided.
  2. Players use the wooden bleachers only.
  3. Dug outs are not in use except for Coaches.
  4. Players are not allowed seeds as this invokes spitting. 
  5. 2m social distancing to be observed.  If this cannot be observed, then masks are required.
  6. Supporters to remain in their respective areas.  Signs directing home teams/parents and visiting team/parents to their areas are at the diamond.
  7. Players to leave the diamond area immediately after the completion of the game.  Coaches’ meetings can be held amongst the trees.
