Good evening Angels parents & ball players!
As most of you may be seeing HB Cal Ripken Baseball is starting to open!
This is exciting yet filled with questions.
The board has been working hard to create an opportunity for our league to open. Obviously, we are going to start cautiously, with the goal of getting our children out on the field playing ball safely.
The state has guidelines for team athletics to start and we should feel fortunate because, not all towns are embracing the opportunity.
The League feels that we can begin to conduct practice inside these guidelines, and I agree! Although it may not be 100% baseball to start we can anticipate moving in that direction over the next few weeks.
Our first practice will be Tuesday (yes - in two days) at 5:45 - Jenson field in Brookline, there will be many new requirements that we all will need to work together on.
I will send a follow up email prior to practice.
The baseline rules at this point:
1. Parents will need to sign the league waiver or players will not be able to participate.
2. Players & coaches come to and from the practice field wearing a mask (face covering)
2. Players will not enter the dugout
3. Players will not share equipment.
(And as currently required - if you are sick stay home! if you caught or sneeze do so into your arm, stay 6’ apart - I will being hand sanitizer for all to use)
There will be a limit of players and coaches - at this point it will be myself and Coach Bob.
We will conduct practice depending on the number of players that participate.
If there are 8 players attending Bob and I will work together. (Meeting the 10 person Max)
If there are more than 8 we will essentially conduct 2 separate practices and we will not commingle the two groups to comply with the current guidelines. It will be our responsibility to comply, until we move into the next phase.
This is different for us all, I ask you to work together with me and respect our individual concerns and drives.
I’m personally happy to be part of this first step. & I look forward to seeing you all!
Thank you Coach Chris
