Thank You RYBSA for Making It Possible In 2020
Like many of you I enjoy the game of baseball and look forward to the start of a fresh new season each year. The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly disrupted team sports around the world—as we all know. Leading through these unprecedented times has truly been overwhelming for volunteer run leagues attempting to plan and organize a safe season. So challenging, in fact, several communities in MA and across the country have cancelled spring/summer sports all together. Sadly, many league age 12-year-old boys and girls will miss out on what many view as the pinnacle of their little league experience. Countless 5 through 11-year-olds will have to wish for next year.
I would like to recognize the tireless hard work of RYBSA board members and volunteers in making the 2020 season a reality. Their commitment to cause, due diligence and standards of excellence have made it possible for boys and girls of this community to be part of a team and take to the field once again. The great Babe Ruth once said, “never allow the fear of striking out to keep you from playing the game”. The temptation to give up is a common one, and nobody is exempt. Facing an unprecedented set of challenges, The RYBSA board and team of volunteers stepped up to the plate in a big way and they made it happen.
