Board Of Directors Update


Board Of Directors Update


Hello EGC baseball community,
 
While we are certainly in unprecedented times we wanted to reach out and give you all an update from East Greenbush-Castleton Youth Baseball.

Our registration remains open for our 4 - 6 year old divisions (T-ball and Mini Minor) and our board is working on completing teams for our Major, AAA, AA and A divisions in hopes that we will be able to play baseball at some point this season.  As soon as managers are selected and teams created, managers will be in contact with their participants.

Below is a portion of a message sent to us from Little League International on the current status of the 2020 season.  For further info please feel free to visit 
littleleague.org
 
"With the most recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Little League International Board of Directors and staff is now strongly advising all its local Little League programs to suspend/delay their Little League seasons through no earlier than Monday, May 11We implore you to follow this recommendation and suspend all Little League activities through no earlier than May 11.  As this situation evolves, Little League International is committed to sharing the best guidance possible for all of our 6,500 leagues in more than 84 countries. It is our sincere hope that we can find ways to bring everyone back to the Little League fields this season, whether that’s later this spring or throughout the summer."


The EGCYBL Board will be following their advice and not be conducting any baseball related activities until at least May 11th.  This unfortunately includes opening day (scheduled for Apr 25th), picture night (scheduled for Apr 30th), the Pitch, Hit & Run event, any league related fundraisers, and any actual baseball practices.  Even though managers may contact you with your team information, they will not be able to conduct any practices until after May 11th.  As a board we will be continuing to work together to form the best plan of action going forward while still trying to prepare for our season.  With our current situation changing daily we will continue to try to supply updates to all of you as we get them. 
 
We hope that while everyone may be stuck at home you can take this time to practice your baseball skills.  We have set up a group in Band App, which will help with all types of baseball related activities that you and your family can do at home.  This will include simple drills, games and baseball movies to help distract the kids.  We are in hopes that this will help get everyone thinking baseball and assist in getting through this difficult time.

Join our Band App group here:  https://band.us/n/a9aa32f9Bbd4E

 
As further updates and info becomes available to us we will make sure we pass it on to all of you. 
 
Enjoy your time with your families and stay safe!
 
EGCYBL Board of Directors
