Dear Parents, Players, and Coaches,
Stafford Baseball League (SBL) is delighted that you have chosen to participate in the upcoming Stafford Spring Showdown which was delayed from earlier this year. SBL, in consultation with Stafford County Parks and Rec, is committed to doing everything possible to allow the kids to play while we as adults do everything possible to model social distancing and follow the rules that have been established for this event. Please complete Stafford Baseball League’s Covid-19 Waiver Release form and turn in to your coach. ONE team representative will need to turn in all of them for your team BEFORE your team is eligible to participate in the Stafford Spring Showdown tournament this July 25th& 26TH.
While we will have concessions open, indoor restrooms open, we ask that all families adhere to the signs and the social distancing guidelines for this tournament.
We also ask that parents, coaches , and players please wait and not encroach on the families that are enjoying the game on the field that you will be playing on at the conclusion of that game. Additionally, we ask that once your game has concluded, that parents and players and coaches immediately begin to pack up and leave that area to allow the next team and families to set up.
As we look forward to providing another top level tournament that has become customary, please know that everyone’s safety is our number one priority. Failure to comply to the rules and/or a reasonable request to comply by tournament staff will result in removal from par and/or team forfeiture of game(s).

Coaches and Team Admins,
We here at Stafford Baseball League hope this message finds you well. These are trying times, but hopefully you are all making the best of it, and are hopeful for better days ahead. Within our country we haven't seen anything like this since WWII. As a country we came back strong from that, and we will from this as well.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we will not be able to factilitate this event in April. We are hopeful at some point this summer we can resume baseball, and as such we have postponed this event until June 20-21. Whenever this stay at home order lifts we are all going to be anxious to hit the field. Here in Stafford we want to be ready to roll as soon as we can, and we will be here for you.

If you would like to stay in this event for June please let us know. If you would like to withdraw and request a refund please e-mail me, and copy treasurer@staffordbaseball.org. We are OK with whatever option you choose, and will work with you any way we can.

Take care and hope to see you all soon.

Thanks, Toby
