ADRIAN, Michigan - As the Adrian Dirtbags Baseball and Softball Programs are considering a return to the field, it is recommended that each team adheres to the guidelines set forth by the State of Michigan and local government and health officials in terms of public gatherings, organized sporting practice and events when it is safe to return to play. Coaches, Players and Parents should thoroughly review this memo before returning to play. Once we are able to resume activities, below are some best practices for helping to provide a safe place to play, while stressing the importance of mitigating the spread of COVID-19.
These best practices have been compiled from resources and direct guidance from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), The Aspen Institute, among others.
The Adrian Dirtbags are encouraged to, first and foremost, follow all directives and guidance from the state and local government, and should ask their state government officials for any information available regarding resuming youth sports within the state of Michigan. All Adrian Dirtbags coaches, players, officials, and families are strongly encouraged to review these guidelines.
In addition to state and local guidance, we encourage the Adrian Dirtbags Baseball and Softball teams to consider the following when returning to play.
