MAY 27, 2020-INTERCITY LEAGUE COVID-19 UPDATE

(MAY 27, 2020) The Intercity League Board of Directors continues to work toward an abbreviated 2020 season. The Board met for the fifth time in the last eight weeks, via Zoom Conference, on Wednesday night.

The Board unanimously reiterated its’ position that the safety of players, managers, administrators, umpires, and fans remains the number one priority should ICL Baseball become a reality at some point this summer.

The Board has begun to formulate league guidelines for a potential season that would begin no earlier than July 6. In addition to the stringent league guidelines that are being drafted, the ICL would strictly adhere to any standards required by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as well as the cities and towns where ICL games may be played.

If both Phase 1 and Phase 2 of Governor Charlie Baker’s reopening plan go as currently proposed, Phase 3, which would allow baseball games to resume, could begin as soon as June 29.

Any potential ICL season would conclude with a double elimination tournament in place of our usual playoff format. Both the shortened regular season and the post season tournament will only be conducted if we determine it is safe to do so and the regulations and guidelines in place at the time would allow.

Our next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, June 9. Our meeting will follow Governor Baker’s much anticipated June 8 COVID-19 briefing. It is our hope that any prospective path forward will become much clearer at that time.

We will continue to keep everyone informed.
Please stay safe.
ICL Board of Directors
