Navigating COVID – 3/2/21

March 2, 2021

WMLL is fully committed to providing a fun, meaningful, safe and responsible spring/summer season of baseball and softball in accordance with county & state requirements.

On March 2, Public Health Madison & Dane County (PHMDC) issued Emergency Order #14 which will go into effect on March 10. Order #14 furthers the significant updates to sports requirements in Order #13.  You can read the full order HERE & a information specific to sports HERE.

With the release of these new orders, WMLL will return to normal rules of play, a normal playing field & a normal league schedule for both baseball & softball during the 2021 spring/summer season.  WMLL will also form “all star” tournament teams to compete in area tournaments.

Per the order, players will be required to wear a mask at all times during games*, and the expanded off-field player seating areas and equipment & handwashing requirements from 2020 will still be used.  Each field will be able to have 500 total players & spectators in attendance, but everyone (players, coaches, volunteers, spectators & staff) must wear a mask at all times at the WMLL ballpark* * = Unless an individual or activity meets exemption or exception criteria outlined in the order.  

The Board will continue to closely monitor PHMDC requirements as well as information from Little League, the CDC, etc.  If PHMDC orders change, WMLL will adjust plans accordingly & provide updates to WMLL players, families and volunteers in a timely fashion
