UpdatedThursday February 25, 2021 by GRLL Information Officer.
Hi everyone and the GRLL baseball family. We know the winter seems to be getting longer and Covid has taken its toll, but we are getting going with Little League Baseball! Please register for an early season hitting clinic to start the players off hitting correctly. The clinic will be Wed & Thur @ 730-900pm (Feb 24th & 25th) and Wed & Thur @ 730-900pm (Mar 3rd & 4th) @ D-Bat in Kennewick. Wednesdays will be for 6-9 yr-olds while Thursdays will be for 10-12/13 yr-olds. The clinic will include base mechanics as well as keys to approach and aggressiveness at the plate. The cost is $25 per player, which includes both sessions. Visit the home page (League Homeplate) at our web-site at http://www.grll.org/site/ and click on the "REGISTRATION NOW OPEN" banner to register for the clinic.
Statement from GRLL President regarding the use of masks/gaiters while attending this clinic:
GRLL will require players and volunteers to wear masks during the winter clinic being run at D-Bat. Greater Richland Little League prides itself on being a part of our community. And as such, we always strive to do what is best for our community. This means wearing masks and limiting the number of participants of this clinic. In 2019 we were in a much different environment. The world changed with COVID and that is acknowledged in how we conduct all of our events. We did not offer this winter clinic prior to entering phase 2 because we felt it did not meet the regulations on gyms during phase 1. Entering phase 2, we wanted to offer the kids some baseball activity if their parents felt safe doing so. We are limiting the number of signups for this clinic and ask that all parties involved wear masks. We would appreciate too if parents would not group up in the isles at D-Bat.
When we get to our tryouts this weekend and then into our spring season, you will notice a lot of things will be different, from league provided masks for everybody, to not sharing batting helmets, no community water jug in the dugout, no spitting seeds, even down to how we manage the game balls. We will be asking all of you to do your part, we will be limited to 75 people per field so we might not be able to have all the extended families sitting in the stands. We will ask you all to spread out along the fences instead of sitting grouped in the bleachers. We know, like you, that we just got to phase 2 and the region needs to do what is required to continue to combat the virus and not go backward.
If you have concerns or ideas on how we can better provide baseball activities safely for the kids, please send us an email. We truly do want to do our part to keep this community moving in the right direction with respect to the virus.
