MINNESOTA SOFTBALL COVID-19 MAY 21 UPDATE


2020 “Safe Play: Back to the Diamond” Update

The Minnesota coalition of statewide youth baseball and softball organizations have been actively working to seek further clarification from the Governor’s press conference yesterday. We did speak to the Minnesota Amateur Sports Commission and Commissioner Tomes to further understand the next phase of the Minnesota Stay Safe Plan. The Governor’s Task Force for Youth and Amateur Sports have scheduled a call with all Minnesota youth sports organizations, the Commissioner and the MDH Epidemiologist for further instructions. An update of “Minnesota’s Stay Safe Plan” can be found at mn.gov: https://mn.gov/covid19/for-minnesotans/stay-safe-mn/stay-safe-plan.jsp. A new column has been added to provide clarification, called, “Organized Youth Sports”. What did this mean for organized community-based youth baseball and softball?
    - Organized Practices may begin June 1, per MDH guidance.     - No timeline has been set for Phase III, which calls for games to begin.     - Our goal is to hold league games beginning, June 15th. Once we gain further clarification, we will notify you immediately! Thank you for your patience during these unprecedented times.
