The Latest and Greatest around EMBSA


 ***ATTENTION: EMBSA has POSTPONED All League Activities**

As we all know, the start of the 2020 softball/baseball season has been postponed in response to the Coronavirus sweeping our nation. Our goal is to play ball this spring and summer, it's only a matter of time as to when. We are monitoring the situation and as soon as we deem it safe to play, we will. Until then, all organized baseball and softball activities are on hold.
On Monday, Little League International, which operates 6,500 programs in more than 84 countries recommended that leagues delay all activities until May 11th, they stated:
" We recognize that this is the heart of the traditional Little League season and we share in the great disappointment that many are feeling surrounding this additional pause in the 2020 season. However, it is our hope that by doing this, we will all play a small, but important part in flattening the curve in the spread of the coronavirus pandemic."
There is nothing better than watching your child play in America's pastime, but there is nothing more important than the safety of our children.
We will continue to share updates as they become available, please be safe.
