Baseball / COVID-19 and Our 2020 Summer Season

COVID-19 and Our 2020 Summer Season

Date:  Source: New England Collegiate Baseball League

We continue to closely monitor the rapidly changing situation involving the outbreak of COVID-19 and its impact on our 2020 summer season. 

We are hopeful that we will play baseball this summer, and we continue to plan for our summer season, including accommodating college seniors who are now eligible to play and what our season may look like.  That said, our first priority is the health and well-being of our players, host families and fans.  As part of our monitoring we are communicating with MLB, the NCAA and the National Alliance of Collegiate Summer Baseball. We will regularly review decisions and guidance from federal, state and local officials, and the leadership of our host communities to obtain the most current information on the virus, and to understand and implement the most current recommendations and directives.

As we assess this changing situation, foremost we recognize that college athletes lost their spring season, and because of this, summer baseball is more important to our players and coaches than ever before.  That’s why – even in the context of today - we will continue to plan for summer ball and make every extra effort to get our college players on the field.  Our season may not look the same, but our role in player development has never been more important.  And to our dedicated fans and sponsors, your support has never been more important. We appreciate your long and steadfast support and are hopeful to see you again this summer at the ballpark. 

As we make decisions about our summer season, we will keep you fully informed.
