Coon Rapids Baseball 2020 Summer UPDATE

The Coon Rapids Baseball (CRB) Board has been meeting on a weekly to bi-weekly basis for the better part of the last month and ½ in an effort to plan for the 2020 Summer Baseball Season. The plans have been evolving since the COVID-19 Pandemic began. Much of our planning has been in concert with Minnesota Youth Athletic Services (MYAS), Gopher State Baseball League (GSBL), and North Star League (NSL). On Tuesday, June 2nd, MYAS informed us of their decision to cancel ALL baseball operations through July 6th of 2020. With that being said, and with a heavy heart, Coon Rapids Baseball has decided to refund all fees for the 2020 Season for ALL LEVELS from 13U – 19U (MYAS, GSBL, and NSL), including Winter Ball for those who attended. We are being told it may take 2-3 weeks for Sports Engine to process these refunds due to the overload of requests they are currently receiving. We’ll do our part in expediting this as best we can.

 

This decision was not taken lightly as we took into great consideration our families thoughts, questions, and concerns in making it. Player (family) safety, quality of play, and continued collaboration with surrounding communities were all factors in making this decision.

 

 

WHAT NOW?

 

Coon Rapids Baseball is working on a plan that has our kids playing baseball this summer. We are working with the City to formulate a “Return to Baseball” Safety Plan that must be approved before we can do anything. We have and will retain all field allocations in an effort to put together player development opportunities as restrictions loosen. Although we can’t guarantee this will happen, we hope to offer something for our Coon Rapids players that will include practices and games. Once our Community Baseball Plan has been finalized, we will ask all members who wish to take part in the program to register via our website at coonrapidsbaseball.com. More details will be provided in the coming days.

 

The Coon Rapids Baseball Board appreciates your patience and understanding throughout the past few months. NOBODY wanted this to become a reality. It’s our hope that everyone understands how difficult this decision has been and can’t wait to see everyone back on the field soon. Stay safe & healthy.

As we move into our summer practice schedule, we wanted to send out the current Coon Rapids baseball guidelines for safe play. The following guidelines pertain to Baseball Teams sponsored and organized by the CRBR and CRBA.


Players are encouraged to provide their own protective and playing equipment. 

 ie: 
*Batting helmet, batting gloves, bats, and protective face masks.
*Equipment should not  be shared with other players
*If necessary, bats will be wiped with a disinfectant cloth between uses by multiple players.


Players when in the dugout and surrounding area while the team is at bat are encouraged to follow protective masking guidelines as set forth by MDH.


Defensive players are NOT required to wear facial masks.


It is recommended that batters will use batting gloves (or similar) when touching any part of the bat, either when in the “on deck” area or during their at-bat.


If desired, players may bring their own personal water container, Coaches will not supply a water jug for the team.


No gum, No Seeds, NO SPITTING on the field or in the dugout.


Players will not participate in the traditional “hand Shake” after the game but instead will line up on their respective foul line and salute the opposing team.


In order to provide for safe distancing, no more than six(6) players will be allowed in the dugout when the team is up to bat. (balance of the team will remain outside the fence and maintain safe distancing protocols.


Parents will be expected to reinforce and follow safe distancing guidelines as recommended by MDH and as noted below.
