NORTHWOODS LEAGUE CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE
Ashwaubenon, Wis. – The Northwoods League continues to closely monitor the developments related to COVID-19 and the different ways in which each sub-region in the Northwoods League is responding. Fan, player, and personnel safety remains our primary focus. Because the situation changes almost daily, and differently in each area where the League operates, our approach is to remain creative, nimble, and adaptable to how each situation unfolds throughout the entire League footprint so that where and when baseball can safely be played, it will be played.
A brief update on the 2020 Booyah season specifically. We are continuing to work with local and state health officials to determine a safe return to Capital Credit Union Park. We have developed a safety plan that will be shared with you very soon, that includes modifications to the capacity and seating within the ballpark, and changes to procedures used in the stadium. In conjunction with the Northwoods League, we are working on developing a “pod” scheduling approach with our fellow Wisconsin teams. The goal of The Booyah is a safe return to baseball in early July. Please continue to follow us here for further updates on the 2020 season.
In the meantime, we want to sincerely thank our fans, players, and all of the personnel who make the Northwoods League such an important part of the communities where we play. We look forward to safely coming together as soon as possible.
