BASEBALL

Good Evening members of the DEC,

 

Baseball Commissioner Roger Mathison asked me to share the following email sent to all baseball directors and administrators.  There are teams who may be planning on playing ball this summer despite previous communications.  Please communicate with posts accordingly so all teams understand that there may be no affiliation with American Legion Baseball.

Thank you!

 

---As you are aware, the Wisconsin American Legion Baseball season has been cancelled.  You previously received an email on May 9, 2020 with information regarding the refund of registration fees and the cancellation of insurance.  We understand that some teams are planning an independent baseball season this summer.  It is not our position to provide any input on how or whether that should occur.  However, I would remind you that you will not be insured by any insurance policy offered by or provided through the American Legion.  You will need to obtain your own private insurance policy.  Further,  if you elect to move forward with an independent team this summer you should not represent your team as an American Legion Baseball team nor should you utilize the American Legion emblem in any manner, including, but not limited to, the patches which are displayed on your jerseys.

 

The American Legion has cancelled American Legion Baseball throughout the United States.  The decision by the American Legion to cancel the 2020 season was a difficult decision and was done with the utmost concern for the health and safety of participants, coaches, volunteers, and all individuals who come into contact with American Legion Baseball.   It is the goal of the Wisconsin American Legion Baseball Association to provide a sanctioned season and state tournaments in 2021.  We hope that all teams return and participate in American Legion Baseball in 2021.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I wish everyone the best during these difficult and unusual times.  

Stay safe and healthy – 

 

 

Very Respectfully,

 

Jen Swenson
