2021 BCB Social Distancing Guidelines

Updated 3/16/2021

Boardman Community Baseball is committed to maintaining the health and safety of our players and their families during the COVID-19 Pandemic. In addition to all state and county guidelines, we have developed game day and Fields of Dreams requirements that need to be strictly followed in order for players at all ages to play baseball and softball this year.

All Age Groups

1. Parents and coaches must conduct daily symptom assessments of themselves and their players prior to coming to the fields. Anyone experiencing symptoms or a fever greater than 100.4 degrees must stay home.

2. Players must have their own equipment (eg. Glove, Bat, Helmet)

*There will be no sharing of any equipment amongst players. (For Minors, JV and Varsity - shared catcher’s equipment must be sanitized by coaches before equipment can be used by a different player).

*We have helmets available that can be loaned out for the season. Please let your coach know if your child will need to have the league provide a helmet.*

3. We are recommending coaches and players wear face masks but guidelines from the state do not require face masks to be worn in the field of play.

4. No spitting or eating sunflower seeds, gum, or other similar products. No smoking, vaping or smokeless tobacco is permitted at the complex.

5. No sharing of water coolers or bottles.

Social Distancing

1. Spectators can social distance as a family. We ask that each family limit the number of family members to 5 people.

2. All bleachers and benches will be closed at the fields. Spectators will need to bring their own seating.

3. Spectators must be at least 6 feet from all dugouts and playing areas.

4. All participants, spectators, and employees must adhere to six-foot physical distancing while at the fields.

5. Players and coaches must refrain from high fives, handshakes and other physical contact with teammates, opposing players, coaches, umpires, and fans.

6. Individuals should not congregate in common areas or parking lot following the game or practice.

Mushball, Rookie, Minor and JV divisions:

•All players will be released to sit with their parents when their team is at bat or when that player is not playing in the field.

•It will be the parents’ responsibility to maintain social distancing of the player at that time.

•If a player’s parent is not at the game. Player will be socially distanced in the dugout.

For Major division and up:

•Players will be socially distanced in the stands and along the fence lines and monitored by the coaches.
