Minnesota Softball's main priority is to ensure the safety of our athletes, coaches, umpires, and fans as we continue to monitor all relevant information on the COVID-19 virus.
We have received many phone calls and emails about what we are doing about COVID-19. Please do us a favor and spread the word with your coaches. It’s nice that they want to reach out to us with their opinions but it’s also causing us a lot of undue pressure and redundancy of effort.
Our reality is many of our fields and facilities are controlled by cities and schools. When they block the use of the facilities, that answers many questions for us and we will be able to make better more informed decisions. The good news is most early starting leagues are still forty (40) days away.
We have cancelled events before. The outrage from cancelling is immense. We will continue to monitor the situation and update you as needed. There will be some meetings that will get postponed. More information on that later.
Some of our partners in amateur sports here in the state have begun laying off people. It’s a sad reality of these times. We are hopeful we all can get through this and get everyone back on the fields enjoying our great sport.
We have all of the league materials in our office. We can start shipping it out to you if you like. It’s not like we are real busy working on anything else at this point. We are however working on new technology that all of you will be able to leverage for league management if you need a free resource. More on that later when it is published.
Thank you for your continued passion and patience. Updates will be posted as soon as we get them on the following online assets:
Please stay safe.
