American League UPDATE AS OF MARCH 17, 2020:

The COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic is rapidly changing the way that we, as global citizens, think, act, gather, learn, and live our daily lives. And, yes, that also means how we play baseball with Lee’s Summit Baseball Association.

With the most recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and our local government, LSBA Board of Directors has decided to postpone the start of the American League season this year to May 17.  This is only a few days later than when we would normally play games.

We recognize that this is neither optimal, nor is it something we wanted to do, but is a necessary step for the 2020 season. 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.

We will continue to consult with appropriate medical advisors, government health officials, and our volunteer leaders, as we are committed to doing the best we can for the safety and well-being of our players, families, volunteers, and fans.

As this situation evolves, LSBA is committed to sharing the best guidance possible for all our patrons. It is our sincere hope that we can find ways to bring everyone back to the Legacy baseball fields.

LSBA worked through all possible scenarios for the 2020 season, and this is the best solution to have baseball this season for our kids and keeping them and our families safe.

We are committed to sharing information as it becomes available.

We also will be sharing guidance on how to resume playing when appropriate, best practices for how to hold practice going forward, and overall communication with our patrons.  This information will continue to be developed and shared on our website at https://www.lsbaseball.com/Default.aspx?tabid=1004031  and through all of our communications methods (email, Twitter, and Facebook).

There are countless resources available, and we urge you to follow the information available through World Health OrganizationCenters for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), your state’s public health department (click here for a listing of state public health departments), and other county and/or local authorities including precedents set by area school districts and government agencies (https://cityofls.net/coronavirus)

We encourage you to stay in touch with LSBA and share any additional feedback or questions by emailing [email protected].

For teams ages 9 and up there will be no Player Acquaintance Day (PAD) held this year. The drafting of player in this same age group will still be held at its normal time.  Please work with your league rep on the details of these events. 

For teams ages 5-8 we are working to form those teams and we will have them formed as soon as possible.  Most likely all teams of all ages will be completed by the end of March.  This way you will know what team you are on and when we get the green light to play baseball everything will already be in place.

As for practicing prior to the season starting.  This will all depend on what happens in the world, the US, and our own area.  We cannot practice at this time due to the restrictions imposed by our local health departments.

Again, this is an unprecedented event that we are working through as best we can.

Thank you all for your support, patience, and understanding as we work through this global issue.

We will be thinking of our local and global community during this difficult time.

Thanks
Rick Murrow
Vice President

Lee’s Summit Baseball Board of Directors (COVID-19) Update – Saturday, March 14, 2020

Lee’s Summit, MO — Lee’s Summit Baseball Association (LSBA) is taking precautionary measures to prevent the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Lee’s Summit.

At this time, we will continue to monitor the situation and meet with our community partners including but not limited to Lee’s Summit Parks and Recreation, Lee’s Summit R7 School district, and City Officials. Effective 3/14/2020 we are suspending all practices at our venues until further notice. At this time, we have no plans to cancel the season, however, as this is a fluid situation, conditions may change. LSBA will provide additional information as it becomes available.

The best way to prevent the spread of any illness is avoid being exposed and practicing everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of disease:

·       Wash hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water; use hand-sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap and water is not available

·       Cover nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing

·       Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with hands

·       Avoid contact with others who are sick or are showing symptoms

·       Stay at home and avoid participation in activities if sick or are showing symptoms

·       Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces with household cleaning sprays or wipes

·       Practice social distancing-give 6 feet of space from others

LSBA will continue to provide periodic updates for the education and awareness of our patrons.  Check LSBA’s webpage at https://www.lsbaseball.com/, our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/leessummitbaseballassociation/, or the City of Lee’s Summit coronavirus webpage at https://cityofls.net/coronavirus for updates as we monitor information on the progress of Coronavirus (COVID-19).
