All league activities postponed until 6/30

 On 5/6 we received word from Carroll County Park and Recreation that all sports are cancelled through June 30th, thereby removing any possibility of a spring or early summer season.  We are still planning to provide baseball in 2020.  In lieu of our usual spring and fall season, we are planning to offer "2020 baseball" which will allow your recreational baseball player to join league play from July 1st through October 31st.  Obviously, these dates are subject to change, which we are all getting used to.  You will not have to be present for the entire season to play.

 

If you would like to play any portion of 2020 baseball, and you were registered for spring ball, you need to do absolutely nothing.  If you would like to opt out, you have two options. 

 

1)  Remove your player and we will gladly send you a receipt for a tax-deductible donation of your spring registration fees. 

2)  Remove your player, and we'll refund you 75% of what was paid for spring. 

 

Either way, we'd see you in 2021.  Here's the link for that:  Recreational Baseball Refund and Withdrawal Form 

We hope that you and your loved ones are safe during these tough times and we hope to see you on the baseball fields later this year.


Finksburg Baseball & Softball Families!!

It is with a heavy heart that I post this, even though I know it is the right thing to do.  With the onset of the covid-19 situation across the area, and the recent changes related to the state of emergency in our county, we are forced to put the health and safety of our families to the forefront of all priorities.  Finksburg Baseball & Lady Lions Softball operates as a Carroll County Recreation and Parks sanctioned activity, and as such, follows all protocol issued by them.  Parks and Rec has cancelled all activities from now until March 30th.  I am hopeful that this timeline is not extended, but we will wait for the green light from Parks and Rec before resuming.

We will suspend all baseball & softball activities through this period.  This includes cancelling our field prep day planned for tomorrow.  We will look at the possibility of rescheduling the events previously scheduled during this hiatus, including our upcoming skills clinic.  

We remain hopeful and optimistic that once this period is over, baseball will resume in the best manner possible.  We will continue to keep our parents and players informed of our plans and intentions and we look forward to providing you with the best season possible given the situation at hand.  We appreciate the cooperation of our volunteers, coaches, and parents during this time.
