Memorial Day 2020

To all of the families of our fallen airman, marines, sailors, soldiers and merchant mariners, 

Our deepest gratitude for the costly sacrifice of your loved one for the freedom of our country and liberation of millions around the world.

Our words fail to convey the worthiness of such a great sacrifice but hopefully our deeds will show that we were worth their sacrifice.  Please join Alabama American Legion Baseball in honoring our fallen with a moment of remembrance and reflection on Memorial Day.

2020 American Legion Baseball season

 

Alabama American Legion Baseball plans to facilitate Summer baseball games.

 

 

UPDATE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the National Americanism committee has canceled the 2020 19U Regional and World series and suspended the National baseball program.  The state of Alabama is under a “Safer at Home” order by the Governor of the State of Alabama.

 

Under this order:

10. Athletic activities. Effective May 22, 2020, at 5:00 P.M., persons attending or participating in athletic activities shall comply with the following rules.

a. Permitted team activities. From May 22, 2020, at 5:00 P.M.,0 until June 14, 2020, participation in team athletic activities is limited to practices that involve conditioning, skill drills, and similar activities, subject to the rules of this paragraph. Beginning June 15, 2020, participation in team athletic activities may proceed in any respect subject to the rules of this paragraph.

b. Social distancing. (i) Players, coaches, officials, and spectators shall not congregate within 6 feet of a person from another household except to the extent necessary—and only to the extent necessary—for players, coaches, and officials to directly participate in the athletic activity. (ii) Players, coaches, officials, and spectators shall refrain from high fives, handshakes, and other physical contact except to the extent necessary—and only to the extent necessary—for players, coaches, and officials to directly participate in the athletic activity.

c. Facial coverings. Players, coaches, and officials shall wear a mask or other facial covering that covers his or her nostrils and mouth at all times except when a player or official is directly participating in the athletic activity.

d. Sanitation. Players, coaches, and officials shall not share water coolers, drinking stations, water bottles, cups, or other drinking devices. Organizers of athletic activities shall take reasonable steps, where practicable, to regularly disinfect frequently used items and surfaces. For purposes of this paragraph, “athletic activities” means “sports that involve interaction with another person of closer than six feet” and “activities that require use of shared sporting apparatus and equipment.” In addition to complying with the requirements of this paragraph, persons attending or participating in athletic activities are strongly encouraged to comply with any guidelines adopted by the relevant governing organization, if one exists for the athletic activity in question, to the extent those guidelines are consistent with the requirements of this paragraph.

In addition, organizers of athletic activities are strongly encouraged to read and implement the Alabama Department of Public Health’s “Guidelines for Adult and Youth Athletic Activities,” available at https://www.alabamapublichealth.gov/covid19/assets/cov-sah-athleticactivities.pdf.  

The 2020 games and teams are not affiliated with the American Legion organization.  The National organization has suspended operations for the 2020 season with plans to resume operations in 2021.  Each team that plays baseball in 2020 is considered an "independent" team.  The Alabama American Legion Baseball committee will facilitate a game schedule for the "independent" teams that registered to play baseball in 2020.  The teams are encouraged to play by Alabama High School Federation baseball rules.  Each "independent" team will procure insurance for their team and players for the season.
