After a year of uncertainty and finally a modified season caused by the coronavirus pandemic, Wooster Youth Baseball (WYB) is optimistic for a more traditional season in 2021.
And it starts with going back to its normal calendar – a spring season (April-June) – and leagues for all four age groups, consisting of tee-ball (5-7), coach pitch (8U), minors (10U), and major (12U). Registration is now open.
Registration will only be online at woosterbaseball.com.
WYB, continuing to follow the advice of the Wayne County Health Department, will continue to have safety protocols in place, as the main goal is to keep players, coaches, referees and fans healthy. The most up-to-date guidelines will be announced as the season approaches.
“We are excited to have as regular a season as possible this year,” said Brian Ritchie, president of WYB. “The league will continue to use COVID protocols to ensure player and family safety, and it is our hope that the spread of the virus will begin to slow down as we enter the spring months. With these considerations in mind, we believe we can provide a safe and meaningful experience for the boys and girls in Wayne County, and we look forward to seeing everyone on the field. ”
Also new for 2021, the first phase of WYB’s capital improvements will be shown, as Denton Fuller Field will have a new field, as well as new dugouts and fences.
