The 2020 Summer Baseball Season Has Been Cancelled

Byron Youth Baseball Association Families,

 

                After countless hours of planning and discussion the past few months, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 summer youth baseball season. This decision was not easy for the board to make, however the health and safety of our community outweighed our love of the game. As a board of volunteers, we have spent endless hours preparing for this season, debating the best course of action, and developing safe-play plans.

                The lack of access to ballfields due to liability combined with the feasibility of playing the game in a mandated safe manner have ultimately forced us to come to this unfortunate conclusion.  If local ballfields become available for use later this summer/fall, we will look at our options for our baseball families, including the possibilities of some in-house competition and extended training/camp sessions.  However, the summer youth baseball season as previously scheduled will not transpire.

 

You have three options for your 2020 summer baseball registration fees:

  • Request a refund of your registration fees minus a $20 merchant service fee.
  • Rollover your 2020 registration fees to the 2021 baseball season.
  • Donate all or a portion of your 2020 registration fees to BYBA.

 

BYBA is a non-profit organization (503C) and relies on your registration fees to develop a sustainable and successful community baseball program here in Byron.  Our operating budget is small in comparison to most businesses; however, there are certain expenses that reoccur annually.  We understand the current economic situation affects everyone differently, so any donation is very much welcomed.  Any contributions that we receive will be used to pay for our annual fixed operating expenses, field equipment enhancements, and field improvements. Our association’s volunteers provide field maintenance to the city and school fields throughout the year as part of our contribution to the local baseball community. Although the summer season has been cancelled, the association will continue to maintain the fields.

We ask that you please contact us with your registration fee decision before June 15th by emailing or simply replying to this message

After the June 15th deadline, we will graciously accept your 2020 registration fees as a donation to our non-profit organization.  Refunds will take some time and coordination, so we do ask for your patience should you choose that route.

We will continue to communicate with you via email and social media for all information regarding the possibility of late summer/early fall training and competition.

 

Be well and thank you for your ongoing support,

Byron Youth Baseball Association Board
