Latest communication regarding 2020 Baseball and Softball Season

Dear families,

          The volunteers of the GIYRA Baseball & Softball board have been monitoring the ever-changing events surrounding the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in hopes we can still provide the kids at least a modified Season to get outside and play the game they love. 

There are many factors and groups involved with when and if we can have a Season.  Some of those many factors are what stage we are in to ensure we can meet any safety requirements such as social distancing, do we have enough fields to play on, do we have enough volunteers still willing to coach for each division, etc.  Some of those many groups are the State of Michigan government, SEBA, GIYRA Executive Board, Grosse Ile School Board and School Administration, and MHSAA.  Those last two are a key factor for GIYRA Baseball and Softball recreation program because we play most games on school fields.  

At this time if we cannot get access to fields by the end of June/start of July, then we will cancel the Season 2020 season completely.  If the season is canceled, we will get the almost 250 families refunded appropriately.  

        We appreciate your patience and understanding during these unique and interesting times and hope that your family and you stay healthy.  


The GIYRA Baseball and Softball Executive Board
