With the ongoing situation involving the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to warrant the closure of local schools and other key institutions throughout the state, our organization has chosen to prolong the current suspension of league activities until at least April 24, 2020.
On Monday evening the Bitterroot Valley Baseball & Softball Association held a virtual meeting, during which the decision was reached to continue the current moratorium on all league activities in the interest of maintaining the health and public safety of the families of which our league is comprised. Given the extreme fluidity of this public health issue, we remain hopeful that positive changes will lead to a situation in which the children within our community will have the opportunity to experience the season that they have so eagerly looked forward to for several weeks now. With this in mind we have persisted in our diligent planning, formulating continuously revised contingencies for what a postponed 2020 season would look like should further developments evolve in a manner that would make this possible without risking the safety of our participants.
We are also realistic, understanding a distinct possibility exists that a cancellation of the 2020 baseball and softball seasons may become inevitable. Please be assured that we will remain vigilant in monitoring this situation closely, and that we will make every possible effort to reach educated decisions based upon relevant information shared by all levels of public health and governmental officials. We are also firmly committed to providing timely and informative updates as further events unfold that will impact the direction of our league in the weeks ahead.
Once again, we look forward to being able to play even a small role in reviving that sense of community we're all missing as soon as it is safe to do so, and are tremendously thankful for the remarkable support so many throughout our community have shown our association throughout this extremely trying situation.
Corvallis Baseball Softball Association is a community driven organization helping to establish, maintain, and promote youth baseball and softball in the community.
