((UPDATED AS OF 4/8/2020))
Attention all Players, Parents, Coaches and volunteers of Oakdale Baseball Softball Association 2020 season.
Effectively immediately all games, practices and events hosted by Oakdale Baseball Softball Association are to be temporarily delayed until deemed safe and approved by the OBSA board of directors.. All teams are not to form for gatherings or practices during this period under any circumstances.
Let us reiterate that the 2020 season IS NOT CANCELLED and is being postponed and rescheduled. We will be posting a complete action plan for all players and teams in the coming days/weeks as we continue to evaluate the situation and will begin rescheduling games, practices etc at the earliest and safest time possible in coordination with local, state and federal health officials as well as under advisement from our sanctioning authorities.
Reiterating… We are NOT CANCELLING the season and will be rescheduling the 2020 Baseball, Softball and T-Ball season and delivering the services, season, and sport interaction that you signed up and paid for in each registration as soon as possible.
There is still plenty of opportunity for the players to still have a wonderful and full season. Our intent is to allow these kids to play when it is safe and permissible.This intent is being shared by multiple other organizations in nearby cities and nationally as well as with the paid travel leagues as well.
This situation is fluid and changing daily but for the meantime, against some.rumors that may be floating around of commented without accuracy of the actual position of the league, the season has NOT been cancelled by anybody at OBSA and as permitted we currently plan to reschedule all games and events for the 2020 season.
If the board chooses to go any other direction we will make notifications accordingly but for now the season is still planned to continue as soon as we are permitted to proceed.
Hope this clears up the confusion and various stories filtering through our community.
In the meantime, stay home, stay safe and stay healthy and we hope to see all you out on the diamonds so we can hear those word we all love, PLAY BALL!!!
We will be in touch with everybody soon.
