Beckum Stapleton played Fall Ball in 2020. We learned that baseball has much built in social distance. Baseball is the safest team sport but still needs rules to protect our families from COVID or other diseases. We must be flexible in our scheduling and keep safety in mind.
After being apart for so long we can come together with social distance and wearing facemask when needed.
SAFE COMMUNITY YOUTH BASEBALL
Beckum Stapleton Little League is attempting to provide safe as possible recreation for 2021. Covid-19 has grounded all activity for Beckum Stapleton Little League so far. We have a communicable diseases plan to minimize the risks.
We can now practice on outdoor fields using social distance. Players, coaches and fans are required to wear masks. Players and coaches need to keep a 6-foot distance.
Temperature Check: Players and spectators should take their own temperature before leaving the house and they should stay at home with any reading of 100.4 Fahrenheit or higher according to CDC definitions of reportable illnesses for contagious disease.
Players are encouraged to wear batting gloves. (batting gloves can be purchased at sporting goods store like Burghardts, Dicks, Dunns or online)
Despite all safety precautions, there is still a risk of covid-19. If you do not want your child to play, this is understandable. There is a risk and everyone must decide if the benefits of team activity outweigh the risks.
This season will test Beckum Stapleton Little League ability to deliver on our mission of safe, mentored baseball for inner city youth. Please invite youth to play with us this year. All registration is online at www.beckumstapletonLL.org.
