COVID-19 - Latest Update and Impact to the League (updated 7/28/20)

UPDATED MSHYB COVID 19 POLICY

Dear MSHYB Families,

As the world of COVID 19 constantly evolves, it is necessary to communicate how these ever changing guidelines affect the league. In late June Governor Murphy published a list of states for which a 14-day quarantine is recommended for travelers from those states to New Jersey before integrating into New Jersey society. This list is updated regularly. If you are traveling to these states during our summer season and return in anticipation of playing baseball, MSHYB requires you to adhere to the state's 14-day quarantine guideline before playing.

The states are (current as of July 28):

Alabama

Illinois

Missouri

Puerto Rico

Alaska

Indiana

Montana

South Carolina

Arkansas

Iowa

Nebraska

Tennessee

Arizona

Kansas

Nevada

Texas

California

Kentucky

New Mexico

Utah
Delaware Louisiana North Carolina Virginia
Florida Maryland North Dakota Washington

Georgia

Minnesota

Ohio

Washington, DC
Idaho Mississippi Oklahoma Wisconsin

 

 

We are implementing this testing requirement to ensure the health and safety of our MSHYB families and community. This is largely upon the community to enforce, but if we all take a proactive approach we can do our part in curtailing the spread of the virus.

For our league this summer, we will not be using the dugouts at Gero. Please have your players hang their gear on the outside of the fence of your assigned field. Bags should be six feet apart and players must stay by their bag until their turn at bat or turn in the field. This will require a significant amount of parental supervision but it necessary to maintain the social distancing requirements.

Thank You,

Millburn Short Hills Youth Baseball

 

Summer League Youth League Registration is Now Closed
