APRIL 1, 2020 - HAJBA COVID-19 Update

With the ongoing impact of COVID-19 across our community and the nation, the HAJBA board is actively working to monitor the situation and make plans for the season. We understand the impact this has had in our community and are working to do what is best. In order to avoid cancelling the 2020 Spring/Summer season, here is an update on the status of our baseball and softball season.

Due to the recent update from the CDC with the guidance for Social Distancing through April 30, HAJBA will not be able to open the 2020 Spring/Summer season on May 16, as previously planned.

Based on the information we know as of today, the Board has voted to move the HAJBA Spring/Summer season to June through September and cancel the HAJBA Fall Season. We understand this change will impact families, and any family that would like a refund on their registration fees can questions@howellbaseball.org

The good news is, you don’t have to decide on your baseball and softball plans today! We are asking for refund requests to be submitted no later than May 15.

Our currently planned schedule is as follows:

  • Player Evaluations - June 5

  • Teams formed - June 10

  • Practices start - June 12

  • Games start - July 9 through September

Again this is a planned calendar based on what is known today, April 1, 2020. We will continue to monitor changes and update families via email and social media as needed.

Thank you for patience and stay safe!
