I don't know what is going on in Mass, but you should be really glad that Andrew "Asshat" Cuomo is not your Governor!

This order allows low risk recreational activities. Given this language it may be possible to think about getting back on the field shortly. League officials may want to contact officials to determine when access to fields may be possible. Linked here: www.governor.ny.gov/sites/governor.ny.gov/files/atoms/files/EO_202.36.pdf

In Massachusetts it looks like gatherings of up to 10 people on the fields will be allowed as of June 8, with the actual decision being made June 6 by Governor Baker. This is called Phase 2. Also, as I understand it, outdoor games will be allowed as of June 29. This is known as Phase3. All of this is dependent on the new virus numbers staying stable or dropping. Please Notethis is for Massachusetts. I dont know what protocol is or will be for New York State.

I listed a description of Phase 3 and 4 below. Assuming that's accurate we're not part of phase 3 and I believe it's 2 weeks at best between each phase so I would guess we're looking at a minimum of 4 weeks from today. But keep in mind we use fields run by others and they may choose not to reopen them this summer or entire year. We also have to deal with whatever size gathering is deemed to be acceptable and keep in mind everything that is reopening is at limited capacity (ie 50% of occupancy for in store retail) with distance rules applying as well. If you think of a baseball game with two teams and umps we'll be around 25 for a single game and in a case where we have one game following another that could approach or exceed 50 people.

As a 45 manager we've been kept in the loop the whole time, have a time schedule in place for final payments and have a good idea of the numbers of interested players / teams and I'm confident that when it becomes clear what we can do and when we can do it we'll hear more and if it's possible we'll be playing ball. Unfortunately at the moment there is nothing to do but know that there's a plan in place and wait until we know more.





Phase Three will focus on the hospitality industry, allowing restaurants and other food-service businesses to reopen for dine-in service, as well as hotels which are already considered essential businesses and are allowed to serve overnight guests, but this phase will likely mean they will be able to reopen their dine-in restaurants, spas, and gyms.

Phase Four, the final phase, will allow schools, and arts, entertainment, and recreation businesses to reopen including theaters, movie theaters, and other entertainment venues, as well as museums and other artistic institutions. (No matter what, schools will remain closed in the state for the remainder of the current academic year.)

The information I have received from our lovely state is parks fall under phase 4 which if things run smooth the earliest would be July 2. But, lately in NYS things seem to change overnight.

Kelts Field in Waterford is beautiful!
Does anybody have a connection there?

We are distanced by at least 6 feet when playing defense, and could certainly manage to maintain that distance when your team is at bat.
The current 10 person limit is complete and utter "horse hockey"!

Umps could space as well, if the balls and strikes are called from behind the mound.
Anybody watching the KBO would see that they are not worried about masks, distancing, or anything else except empty stands.
You see hugs and high fives quite often.
I haven't seen any players or umpires missing due to the illness, and they have been playing for weeks.
Believe me, the gloom and doom media would be reporting it as an epidemic, if there were any cases.

We would just need to keep our rabid fan base away from the games for this season. LOL

Looking forward to getting out there after the 4th of July holiday!
