Updates

Effective July 3, 2020, in order to comply with the Kansas Executive Order 20-52 (https://governor.kansas.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/20200702093130003.pdf), which was upheld by the Johnson County Board of County Commissioners July 3, 2020, masks will be required by all individuals at OYB games when social distancing cannot be maintained, including dugouts, bathrooms and in concessions areas

 NEW GUIDELINES:

·         Masks will be required to be worn by all individuals in the dugouts if unable to comply with social distancing, except for those who are exempt from this order. See section 3 in the order for list of exempt individuals. Only 2-3 players are to be allowed in the dugout when the team is at bat.

·         Bleachers will be used for players only (no spectators), using social distancing. OYB will mark seats 6 feet apart on the bleachers to assist in social distancing. Spectators should continue to spread out around the field to enjoy the games.

·         Teams are responsible for cleaning up their dugouts and bleachers upon exiting.

·         Home plate umpires will move to behind the pitcher and will call balls-n-strikes. They will not be required to wear masks.

·         Players and umpires on the field are not required to wear masks as they are able to maintain distancing with only infrequent or incidental moments of closer proximity. 

·         The Home team will designate 1 person to run the Scoreboard

·         No post game handshakes, instead line up on foul lines and tip caps to each other

·         No sunflower seeds, peanuts, and/or chewing gum at any complex

·         Games time – OYB Rec = 1hr 30min, GG = 1hr 45min. No new inning will start after the time limit. However, an inning in progress can be completed, games can end in a tie (no extra innings for tie games).

 

OYB expects players and spectators to comply with the Governor’s orders and guidelines established by the Johnson County Department of Health and Environment. It is our desire and intention all individuals in the OYB community (players, parents, coaches, umpires and spectators) will adhere to these Guidelines at OYB games and elsewhere in the community to ensure a safe environment and the ability to complete the baseball season for all participants.
