2020 Baseball and Softball Season Announcement

The Hudson Boosters Board of Directors, after much consideration, has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 in-house and traveling softball and baseball seasons.

Despite holding onto hope and working our way to what we had hoped would be a season, the obstacles ultimately became greater than what we could overcome, while continuing to focus on the safety of our players, their families and our community.

Some of the obstacles include:

  • Field availability
  • Safe execution requirements (social distancing, sanitation, crowd control)
  • Extended season conflicts (planned family vacations, fall sports)
  • Legal and insurance considerations
  • COVID-19 response requirements (contact tracing and team quarantine expectations)
  • Uncertainty of what any sort of season might look like (availability of opponents, travel time)
  • Differences between WI and MN requirements and guidelines
  • The ability to offer an overall good experience

While we could have waited a little longer, we feel that this is the best decision for our community, with the information that we have. We felt it was important to make a decision and provide an announcement to you as soon as possible. This timing prevents us from incurring additional expenses, allowing us to provide full refunds to all registered players, in each of the leagues mentioned above.

We appreciate your past support and your understanding as we look to the future.  We will be following up soon with information on the distribution of full refunds of registration fees (and any pre-paid DIBS payments). Keep an eye out for information on camps and clinics for our players later this summer and tryouts for our 2021 traveling teams.

Sincerely,

Hudson Boosters Board of Directors

Volunteer Information

DIBS REQUIREMENTS

CLICK HERE FOR FOR THE VOLUNTEER FAQ.

  • The Booster club has set the DIBS requirements at 6 hours per player with an 12 hour family maximum
  • Families not fulfilling their DIBS hours by December 31st will be charged $250  for 6 hours not completed or $500  for 12 hours not completed.  
  • Partial credit cannot be given, however completing each set of 6 hours will eliminate one $250 payment.
  • 1 hour = 1 credit

As in previous years, all traveling programs plus in-house programs 3rd grade and above will have this requirement.  Tee-ball and machine/coach pitch leagues do not have this requirement.  Coaches, assistant coaches, and team managers will still have their Dibs/volunteer hours WAIVED for their entire family up to the 12 hour/$500 max.  This is a great chance for you to volunteer, teaching sportsmanship and game skills to the youth of Hudson.

As a 100% volunteer organization, we cannot run these programs without your help, and thanks ahead of time for your efforts!
