Knothole Baseball - Coronavirus Update

 

March 17, 2020

Coaches, Parents and Players,

First and foremost, on behalf of the Knothole Baseball Board of Directors, we hope everyone is healthy and safe as we all work together to help our communities slow the spread of the coronavirus. These are uncharted waters for most of us. Please be assured, Knothole Baseball’s top priority is the health and safety of our players, families and communities. Our goal for the upcoming season is to provide our children the opportunity to play baseball in a healthy and safe environment. For us to do this we will need to rely on the direction given by our public health authorities and Federal and State government professionals. We will follow closely what the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA), Kentucky High School Athletic Association (KHSAA), and Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) are doing with their upcoming seasons. We are going to attempt to provide some guidelines, but since the current situation is rapidly changing these guidelines are "subject to change".

Based on recent mandates by government officials, Knothole Baseball is postponing their Opening Day to April 18th, 2020. In anticipation of opening day occurring on April 18th, 2020, practices may begin April 6, 2020. All post-season tournament dates remain unchanged. We ask everyone as well to understand and consider changes within local communities and their facilities. Several communities have started closing their ball parks and other facilities to do their part in helping slow the spread of the coronavirus. Again, these dates can change based on updated mandates.

Knothole Baseball has been in existence since 1932. This means it has survived other worldwide and national challenges. We will survive this one too! Again, Knothole Baseball is committed to doing everything possible to make the 2020 season happen under a healthy and safe playing environment.

We will continue to communicate with everyone as this situation evolves (hopefully for the good). Thank you for your patience, understanding and support of the Knothole Baseball community. Please stay healthy and most of all, take care of each other. We look forward to seeing everyone on the baseball fields in the future.

Thank you,

Jeff Wiles
