2020 SJMSBL Season Update

The San Jose MSBL 2020 season remains on hold as all of us "stay at home" in the hope that we all can slow the spread of the Coronavirus that is changing our lives forever.

Family first is the top priority now as we all strive to protect our precious loved ones. I consider all of our teams and players as extended family members and my thoughts and prayers are with you on a daily basis hoping everyone comes through this crisis safely.

When we reach the other side of this pandemic - and we will come through this - our baseball league will be there so all of us can enjoy playing the game we love. Stepping on a baseball field again will certainly be a cherished experience as we all miss many things that just days ago we all took for granted in life.

As for when will our season start, nobody really knows is the only honest answer. But the league will be ready whenever that time arrives. Insurance and baseballs have been purchased, fields are pending and umpires are ready to work our games.

In Governor Newsome's "Stay at Home" announcement he hinted that the school year was likely finished and the expected time frame to reach the peak of the infection rate was six to eight weeks from now (mid May). Until the number of confirmed cases peaks and then begins to decline officials are not going to lift the "stay at home" order.

That also means school districts and city administrations will not be issuing field use permits or allowing outside groups to use their fields until state officials determine the health threat to the public is over. When that day comes and people are allowed to return to work and socialize in groups our league will be able to have a couple Sunday's of practice, hold new player tryouts, play an exhibition game and start the 2020 season.

Depending on when we can step on baseball fields again - June, July, August or September - we can have our usual summer league or for the first time ever play a "Fall Ball" season. Baseball can be played until Thanksgiving so there is plenty of time left on the 2020 calendar to have a regular season and playoffs.

Stay safe until we are allowed to play baseball again.
