Once the threat has subsided and the City of McKinney lifts the facilities closures, MBSA games will be rescheduled starting one week later. This will give teams a week to get a practice or two in before games begin.

Please know we are doing everything we can to ensure the season is played. This may include doing some things differently with the schedule as well as extending the season. Once the situation is safe for our players and families to attend games and practices, we want to provide the opportunity for the players to enjoy the great game of baseball and softball!

As the situation evolves, we will continue to update you with any additional changes.

Stay healthy and safe. We look forward to seeing you at the ballfields again in the near future.

 

UPDATE 3/13

McKinney Baseball & Softball Association (MBSA) is aware of the developing situation regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19). We are closely monitoring any and all developments, and effective immediately MBSA is postponing all our activities until March 23. This includes all practices, games, and meetings. The baseball preseason tournament will not be rescheduled.

MBSA will resume practices and games as scheduled on Monday, March 23, 2020. This is an evolving situation and MBSA will provide future updates if the postponed season is extended.

We ask for your patience in the coming weeks as we work through this situation. Our plan is to ensure the regular season, postseason tournament, and all-star games are played. If the games are postponed further, the season will likely be extended to accommodate.

McKinney Baseball & Softball Association encourages everyone to play their part in reducing the spread of respiratory viruses and following these steps will help:

  • Stay home when you are sick and limit close contact with other people except for the medical care that you need.
  • Cover your cough and sneezes to reduce the spread of infectious droplets and wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains 60% to 95% alcohol.
  • Clean “high touch” surfaces daily with regular household cleaners.
  • Avoid sharing personal household items.
  • If you are sick, still wash your hands frequently when you are in places where there may be other sick people and avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

We are monitoring any and all developments through the City of McKinneyTexas Department of Health, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
