From TBSA Board of Directors

Hey Everyone! 

There are some precautions that we will need to address before we begin play. Please read these and adhere as best as you can. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out. 

- There is a small ribbon hung up along the fence line, both inside and outside the dugouts. These are for the players to hang up their bat bags and they are each 6 feet apart. Please make sure the players hang their gear up accordingly. 

- We are asking the parents to not sit on the bleachers for now, so that the players may use the front row of them only, essentially using the bleacher as their "dugout bench". As much as this is an inconvenience for all, fans must be reminded by all of us that this is our adherence to the current Covid-19 precautions that are being implemented by our State and County lawmakers. This minor inconvenience is something that we had to agree to follow in order for the kids to play ball. 

- Parents will need to be told about this asap so that they may bring lawn chairs and sit along the fence line or even back behind the bleachers. 

- After each game, a coach will need to use the pump sprayer (provided for each diamond), and spray a sanitary mist in the dugout and on the front row of bleacher (where the kids sat), for the next team. 

- Catcher's should try not to share equipment, but in the event that they must, then it must be wiped down with Lysol Wipes before another catcher may use.  

- Postgame "Good Game" handshakes must be put on hold for now. So, instead we are going to strongly suggest that each team line up on the baseline in front of their respected dugouts, and when both teams are ready - all players and coaches must raise or tip their caps to the other team. 

Regardless how we feel about this current pandemic, we are all still in it and we must follow these guidelines in order to play ball. Please be respectful of this and ask your teams (players and parents) to understand before we begin on June 15th! 

Good luck everyone, and thank you for playing at TBSA. Let's have a great season and continue to build the respect back up for the league that we have all worked hard to restore.
