Hey Blue!


Did you know that part of our Return to Sport protocols allow an exception to our rule that requires a player or coach warming up a pitcher to wear a mask?


In order to limit sharing of equipment, players and coaches who warm up a pitcher do not have to wear a mask for now but they must be standing.If they squat, they have to have a mask on.
