Updated COVID-19 Park Rules Additions and Adjustments


Best practices and reminders:

  • Hand sanitizing stations are being placed throughout the park, courtesy of our partners at Children's Hospital. All encouraged to use them frequently, especially after coming into contact with shared surfaces.
  • Decals will be placed in the concession stand area to demonstrate proper distancing. Other signs will be posted at our facilities to encourage social distancing and other safety practices. Please observe them!
  • Players are strongly encouraged to bring their own bats and helmets, and to use batting gloves. Any shared equipment should be sanitized between uses.
  • Coaches are encouraged to minimize the changing of catchers in order to minimize sharing of catchers' gear. See Rule 8 above with respect to sanitizing of catchers' gear.
  • Players who are demonstrating symptoms of COVID-19, or who have been in contact with others confirmed or suspected to have been infected with COVID-19, are asked not to attend practices or games.

Temporary rule changes in individual leagues:

  • 7/8 Boys and Girls: The catcher position is eliminated. The catcher-coach should return the ball to the pitcher.
  • 9/10 Boys: Holding runners on is prohibited. Pick-off plays are prohibited.
  •  11/12 Boys: There will be one umpire, who will set up behind the pitcher.

LATEST UPDATE

Carrollton continues to monitor the risks posed by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Travel baseball practices have now resumed, and we are continuing to plan for the upcoming recreational baseball and softball seasons.

Registration is still open for recreational baseball and softball. We continue to plan to begin grading (which applies to players in the 7/8 year old leagues and older) on Sunday, May 31, with games beginning on or around June 15.

As a reminder, players must be registered before the start of grading in order to ensure a spot in graded leagues (7/8 and above). Players in all leagues are strongly encouraged to register now, as this will help us plan for the season.

Carrollton Boosters is implementing special procedures to address the situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The current draft of our COVID-19 procedures are attached. The Board is continuing active discussion of this topic, and may update these procedures. We will promptly advise the membership of any changes. We are also working on special procedures for grading, which we will circulate and post to the website at least several days before the start of grading.
