La Jolla Youth Baseball 2020 Season Update - May 25th, 2020

LJYB Update - May 25, 2020

Hello LJYB families,

I want to provide you with an update on our prospects for playing baseball this season, as well as to provide you with some additional information regarding the changes we will need to make to our program and facilities.

In my previous email, I indicated that I had joined the Game On coalition on behalf of LJYB, and that together we had submitted the “Youth Sports (Practice and Drills) Physical Distancing & Safety Plan” to local government authorities for approval.  As an initial step, I’m pleased to inform you that the plan to reopen organized team practices was approved by the local authorities and is now on the Governor’s desk for approval.  It’s quite possible that we will receive word from the Governor’s office in the next 24-48 hours.  I remain cautiously optimistic that we will receive the go-ahead to return to the practice field as early as this upcoming weekend.  And with luck, we hope to receive the approval to resume games by mid-June.

In anticipation of receiving the approval to return to the practice field, the Board and I have been working to implement measures to satisfy the requirements laid out by the Physical Distancing & Safety Plan.   Concurrent to this work, by now you should have been contacted by your team’s Manager to find out if you and your player intend on returning to baseball. To aid in your decision making, in the next few days I will forward to you the Physical Distancing & Safety Plan along with a document outlining how LJYB plans to implement each of the requirement’s terms. 

Some highlights include:

  • Temperature screening for all volunteers and players prior to activities
  • Masks to be worn by all adults 
  • Social distancing requirements in place at all times for players and observers
  • Frequent cleaning and disinfecting of regularly touched surfaces
  • Hand sanitizers to be made readily available throughout the facilities
  • Snack Bar to be closed

Finally, I’d like to offer my thanks for your continued support and patience while we navigate through these uncharted waters.   We’re making good progress now, and I hope to announce our return to the fields when you hear from me next time.

Jim Sampson

President, LJYB
