As we are all aware, the New York City region has taken extraordinary precautions to slow the spread of the COVID19 coronavirus. In the interest of the health of our members and new recruits, the Big Apple Softball League will postpone the Recruitment Days that were originally scheduled for March 28 and April 4. We will announce a new date for recruitment as soon as we can.

The league is considering all options to ensure that we get to play this spring and summer. Teams should expect a delay in starting the season, but the length of that delay won’t be clear for a while.

As a reminder, our next Governing Body meeting is confirmed for Wednesday, March 18 at 6:30 PM. It will be via webinar/teleconference. This is a chance for everyone to ask questions and give input. Managers should look out for another email with the details on this remote meeting.

In the meantime, we encourage everyone to stay healthy and look out for each other. Together, we look forward to working through this challenging time.
