Hello Bel-Mateo Babe families,
I hope during this tough time you are all doing well and staying SAFE. During this pandemic with the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has been quite hectic with schools closing, parents working from home, kids learning remotely and taking in all the information that is being thrown our way. Bel-Mateo Babe Ruth is a tight net family and we are here for each other. Remember we are all in this together.
Since our temporary home for 2020 was going to be Carlmont High School, the Sequoia Union High School District has issued an update that all students will transition to Distance Learning through June 4. Meaning schools and campuses will not open and for the safety of everyone students will continue to learn from home remotely.
Based on this update, Bel-Mateo Babe Ruth Board of Directors will comply with the standing order and for the safety and concern of everyone, unfortunately cancel the season until 2021
For any 13 or 14-year-old who choose to return in 2021 there will be no need for your son to tryout again and he will remain on the team. With that said, we can offer you a refund for this year or we can hold the funds for next season. Please contact me with your decision at firstname.lastname@example.org and looking forward to seeing you in 2021.
To all the 15-year-old players: I know you have all worked hard during these past two years playing Babe Ruth and were looking forward to playing your final year with us. Thank you for your hard work and dedication you have given to the league. Words cannot express how disappointed the league is that you could not fulfill your final year with us. With that being said, all 15-year-old players will receive a refund.
Moving forward, this pandemic will be over at some point and we can all look forward to returning to normal life and playing baseball once again in 2021 on a new state of the art field at the Belmont Sports Complex.
Finally, we ask that everyone follow the State of California's shelter in place and safe practices of washing your hands and safe distancing.
REMEMBER WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER AND WE WILL GET THROUGH THIS!
Best wishes to all!!
President – Bel-Mateo Babe Ruth
