FBBSB 2020 Season Update

To Our Flossmoor Baseball and Softball Family,

We pray that this message finds you in good spirits and good health as we all try to adjust to our new normal.

The board met on Wednesday, May 20th and made the tough decision to cancel the 2020 season.

The biggest reason was around process if someone from our community gets sick and transmits it to others. There are too many unknown variables with travel players, social distancing enforcement, contact tracing, organizational legal risk, and proper community notification methods given medical privacy laws of what to do when this happens. In short, we could not ensure the health and safety of our players, families, volunteers and fans. We are hopeful that we can resume Winter Workouts in January 2021.

There are three options regarding your 2020 fees and sponsorships:

  1. Use 2020 fees as credit for the 2021 season
  2. Fees refunded
  3. Donate as a 501(c)3 non-profit contribution to FBBSB for upkeep and community pride (see below)

Please fill out the survey, linked below, to let us know which option works best for you. Refunds will be sent via mail from our bank once we have your address. Please be patient with us as we process requests.

Even though we will not have organized baseball and softball this summer, we have 3 announcements to stay connected:

  • We will invest in maintaining the fields through September as a summer job available to middle and/or high school students
  • We will provide Flossmoor Baseball and Softball spirit yard signs for families to showcase their players to their neighbors
  • We will provide sponsorship opportunities for local businesses via the yard signs and a select group of field signs to displayed along the Pony fence

Please fill out our 2020 FBBSB Survey if you are interested in a refund, summer job, yard sign, and/or sponsorship interest.

If we do not hear from you, we will assume you want to pro-rate or donate your fees to the league.

Thank you to our community for your patience. We will get through this together!

Thanks,
The FBBSB Board
