Spring 2020 Update

Hello SCR Families,

We hope this reaches every one well in light of the recent developments. At first, my children thought this meant a five month summer vacation, but after one day of online learning, they don’t think that anymore! The quick shift of teachers and students to an online forum is impressive and comforting in these times. There is no doubt this is going to change the way we work, learn, play and gather in the future.

Of course there will be some things that won't change - there will be nothing like a hot dog and a beer at a ballgame, cheering on our favorite players (our children), college and pro sports with thousands of others, and spending quality time with friends and family in person. Knowing these types of things are at the end of this road is what makes us all happy.

Based on guidelines from the state, we are going to continue to postpone the season through April 30th. We are working with the cities and our partners to see if we can play baseball in May and into June as a shortened season. It is definitely outside the normal, but we strongly believe if we can get some baseball in at some point, it would be good for all of us.

In hopes of getting back on the field in May, we made the decision, as a league, to not pursue All-Stars and the state or regional tournament this year.

Our board is working hard behind the scenes and we want to hear from you. Please look for an email with a survey soon so we can acquire some feedback on ideas and possibilities.

Stay healthy and keep working on your game!

Brett Johnson
President, Scottsdale Cal Ripken

SCR Season Update as of 3/17/2020

SCR Families, 

The City of Scottsdale has closed all fields until April 5th. Scottsdale provides about 50% of our fields so without them we are forced to delay our potential restart until April 6th.

We appreciate everyone’s patience through these unprecedented times.

Thanks

Brett Johnson
President, Scottsdale Cal Ripken

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SCR Families,

As information continues to become available regarding the increasing spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), we wanted to provide our families with additional guidance on the current Scottsdale Cal Ripken season. 

We are  temporarily suspending all league activities until  March 27.  Should SCR determine that the recommended delay of the season will extend past March 27, we will provide timely notification and information regarding the impact of such a delay.

Please look for our official communication via email, on our website (www.scottsdalecalripken.comand on social media.

Over the course of the next few weeks, SCR will continue to provide additional guidance on the impact of delaying the season weekly, on Sundays.  Please look for an update on the Spring 2020 season each Sunday.  

Thanks

Brett Johnson 
President Scottsdale Cal Ripken

Dbacks Day to Be Rescheduled!

Annual Dbacks Day includes game at Chase Field Along with Parade on Field


SCR Friends and Families:

As the effects of the COVID-19 virus call for social distancing and limiting of large groups in confined spaces, the partnership between Dbacks and SCR for the spring Dback Day Game on April 11th has been postponed.  The start of the MLB season has been delayed, and while the game on the 11th is still active, we are working with the Dbacks to schedule a date where all pre-game festivities can take place.

We will continue to sell tickets to the game under the April 11th date, but there is a high likelihood that this day will be moved into the future.  For those willing to stay with us and wait for additional information, rest assured you will have a ticket to the revised date.  For those wishing to receive a refund for tickets previously purchased, please e-mail Mike Colao, SCR Treasurer, at colao@scottsdalecalripken.com

 

Thanks!

SCR Baseball Weather Procedure

SCR's weather policy can be viewed online or by clicking here.  As it relates to lightning, we suggest using the WeatherBug App as they have a feature called Spark which shows the current lightning activity in the area. As a rule of thumb, if lighting is within a 10-mile radius you should suspend play/practice and take shelter.  Typically, you should wait at least 30 minutes after the last lightning flash or sound of thunder -- or wait until the nearest lightning strike is 10-miles or more away -- prior to resuming activity.

Parents, please be in touch with your coaches. Coaches, please be in touch with your division's commissioner and the league will notify the coaches of any delays or closures but sometimes you will have to make a judgement call on when to play and when to seek shelter.  Thanks!
