No spectators will be permitted to attend on Friday night. Below are the guidelines that we follow for our game on Friday Night. Please review with your coaches. Pre-Game Limit attendees to Head Coach of both teams and game umpires. Participants must maintain social distancing protocols during the conference. No line-up card exchange. (lineup cards exchanged between coaches) No handshakes.(teams stand in front of dugout and tip their cap) Team Dugouts Coaches, game personnel and players only permitted in the dugout. Social distance requirements must be observed by all in the dugout. If the dugout area is not large enough to provide for social distance requirements, players and game personnel may move outside of the immediate dugout area to practice social distance requirements. Spectators shall not be permitted near the dugouts and/or the immediate area of the dugout. Post-game Replace handshakes after the game with a social distance acknowledgment of the team’s choosing. Official Scorekeeping Area Limited to one (1) person from each team and must observe social distance requirements behind the backstop. Equipment Sanitation Each team provides sanitized balls (bucket) while on defense. Have a “dirty” ball bucket available, so they can be sanitized after the game. Sanitize bases after each game. Equipment & Accessories Permissible face coverings are required to be worn at all times by all attendees present other than when engaged in competition. Players shall utilize their own equipment bin for all personal gear in the dugout. Minimize the sharing of playing equipment (bats, batting helmets and catchers gear). Equipment must be sanitized between usage of multiple players. Batting gloves are encouraged to minimize contact with bats, balls and bases. Sanitize all equipment and accessories after each game. Uniforms Long sleeves are encouraged to reduce skin contact with the ball and bases. Water Bottles & Hydration Stations Team members shall not share water bottles. Hydration stations may be utilized but shall be touched only by a single appointed monitor. Umpires No line-up card exchanges. Observe social distance requirements when communicating with coaches, players and other umpires. Face coverings are required at all times. Carry hand sanitizer and use it frequently. Game Personnel Considerations (coaches, players, umpires) No sunflower seeds, spitting, or gum. Carry hand sanitizer and use it frequently. If a pitcher puts his/her hands to their mouth and touches the ball, “TIME” is called, the pitcher must sanitize their hands and a new ball is inserted before throwing the next pitch.
