2020 SEASON - JULY 13th OPENER - HOPEFUL

by Mark Senna

7/9/2020 - - players & coaches, the meeting with the city went well - we have the green light for Monday. However, there are some social distancing measures that we have to follow which I will outline in an email to the coaches tonight. They are not asking too much but are asking that we lead the way and set an example for other leagues to follow. The first week of the schedule will be posted momentarily...

7/8/2020 - - players & coaches, I know your all anxious and want to know when you're playing next week. However, I have just received a ZOOM meeting request from the Parks Department for Thursday morning at 10am. I'm going to wait until after that meeting to post the schedule as there may be some time & date changes.

7/2/2020 - UPDATE - the city just informed me that they will be pushing phase three out to July 13th. At this point, I think any further delays will result in us having to forfeit the entire season. I'm aiming for each team to play 9 games through July and August with playoffs starting in September. Stay tuned!

7/2/2020 - we are still waiting for the state & city officials to give us the green light for phase three. Once that happens, then we will be able to proceed with scheduling, etc... I'm hopeful that we will get word before the holiday weekend begins. Please be prepared to play next week - once we get the OK then we will need to get things going quickly as we cannot afford to have nights pass without games getting played.

With that said, most of you have paid your deposit and have secured your position in the league for 2020. The following is what I have at this point:

6/20/2020 - if everything continues in the current trend, then we should be starting back up on July 6th. With that said, the league has sent out an email invite to all of the 2019 coaches to gage interest for the 2020 season. So far the response has been heavily in favor of playing with 18 teams already securing their spot by paying the $100 deposit. The deadline for entry is July 1st. As of this writing, we don't know how many games each team will play nor the total cost of entry as we are still working out all of the details. More information will be posted here in the coming week.

Stay safe everyone,

5/18/2020 - according to governor Baker's announcement today, it sounds like some of the parks and fields in Massachusetts will reopen during phase II (June 8th). I get the feeling that the clearance for the Boston area fields may be a few weeks behind that date but I cannot confirm that at this time. Regardless, it does sound like we are moving in the correct direction and it just might be possible to squeeze in a 2020 softball season after all. Hope is a wonderful thing - stay tuned!

Sincerely,

5/7/2020 - it has been a little more than two months since we last posted in this space. It has been a waiting game as we all have watched the world we once knew change dramatically. However, parts of the country have slowly began to open up which gives us some hope. Unfortunately, as quickly as everything was shutdown I don't see us getting it all back overnight never mind getting back on the ballfield. I know the Boston city officials are meeting on May 18th to discuss the next steps and we are all hoping for positive news to come from that meeting. It sounds like MLB is looking to hold a two week camp and then open their season on or around July 1st.

If the numbers (those infected) continue to trend downward, then I see our league possibly starting play around that same time (July 1). Obviously the city has to grant us the clearance to begin play. Again, ALL of our teams from the 2019 season will be welcomed back with the addition of at least one new team (Danny Donovan). Once I get the OK from the city officials, then I will be reaching out to all of the coaches to gage their interest. Please check back here after the 18th and please continue to take care of yourselves.

Sincerely,

3/13/2020 - with the increasing spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) the M Street Softball League is going to temporarily suspend league activities for the upcoming 2020 season. Over the course of the next few weeks, the league will provide additional updates in this space, through our Facebook page, and on Twitter (M Street Softball League) as the information becomes available. As you know, this is a very fluid situation with far reaching affects that continue to change on a rapid basis.

Once we get a clearer picture of when we might get back on the field, the league will then reach out to ALL of the 2019 coaches for entry. We encourage you to share this information with your players to ensure they are up-to-date and informed. Our goal is to begin play as soon as it is appropriate so that we will be able to complete the season and award the M Street Cup.

Until then, we thank you for your patience and will be thinking of our softball community during this most difficult time.

Sincerely,
