The ABA has NO PLANS to delay the season. Our baseball games involve less than 50 healthy & athletic adult players and their fans. We play outside in the open air where any virus transmission is extremely difficult and where most players are not positioned near each other on the field anyway. And we play only once a week so if you don't feel well, stay home that Sunday! The ABA's focus has always been on PLAYING baseball. We will not be intimidated by some Muppet virus! America & the Amateur Baseball Association will play ball!!
Other leagues can chose to be weak & hysterical while we will remain strong, confident and logical. We are working with municipal and county governments regarding field slots with varying degrees of success and are scheduled to open on April 5th. Some permits are ready to go, some delayed a week or 2, some still evaluating,...etc. Please keep in mind that the 2nd week of April is Easter and no games are ever scheduled then. If we have to adjust the schedule to single games in the early going to accommodate field space we are ready to do that. Rest assured that we will do everything in our power to make baseball happen just as our previous record has proven. We've had teams play 40 game seasons in the past so were are capable of making up lost ground if necessary.
Using common sense is key. If you feel sick, have a fever or cough then stay home and see a medical professional. Do not share drinks. No kissing each other! We will be instituting a NO HANDSHAKE policy. Do not line up after the game. You can just wave!
Make sure you wash your hands and don't touch your face. Drinking plenty of fluids and taking vitamin C to boost your immune system is always recommended. Olive leaf extract & Lysine are natural herbal anti-virals.
If you feel an urge to feed because the Zombie virus has gotten you, you should stay away from some other leagues because they don't have any brains!
See you out there!
