Message from the Board
Good evening Seitz Family,
We wanted to inform you that the Board voted to begin the season on June 1, 2020. Although we will still be in the “yellow,” we have taken all necessary precautions to mitigate risk and ensure the safety of all players, coaches, and fans. We have installed new hand sanitizers throughout the ballpark, including one in each dugout. We will be disinfecting all areas that are not in direct sunlight, including cleaning and disinfecting the bathrooms. We have banned sunflower seeds from the ballpark for the 2020 season to cut down on germs. Finally, we have implemented fully the safety plan put together for us by two local doctors who used their expertise and references at the University of Nebraska to develop the plan.
While in the “yellow” phase, we are permitting only players and coaches inside the gated area to help us stay within the 25-person gathering. All fans will be permitted outside the gated area to watch the games from their car or lawn chairs. We are asking you to respect one another and park within the white lines to maximize the number of vehicles able to watch the game. You may park in right field, along the 3rd base side and near the batting cages.
Fans will be permitted in the gated area to get concessions or to use the restrooms, however, will need to leave the gated area once they are finished. On Friday, June 5, 2020 we move to the “green phase” and will welcome all fans that want to join us for the games in the gated area.
We thank you for your support and feedback on the survey. We sent to 209 individuals and received 154 responses. 84% or 126 parents/guardians supported a decision to move forward in the “yellow phase” with a Covid-19 Safety plan, following CDC and PA Department of Health guidelines and taking necessary precautions to mitigate risk. We have done all of this and will continue doing this to ensure the safety of our players, coaches, and fans.
We understand that some individuals will not be participating this season or will be waiting until we are in the “green” phase and we respect your choice. We thank you for your understanding through all this unchartered territory and are excited to see you at the ballfield, whether in your cars, with your masks or eventually in the stands! Most importantly, we are excited to see these players on the ballfield on Monday, June 1, 2020.
As always, we hope you are all well, staying safe and God bless!
