Concession Stand Distancing
by Lockport Little League posted 07/06/2020

As we prepare to open our first ever Summer Season we will be unveiling two brand new ADA compliant bathrooms thanks to the fine work and dedication from Benedict's Contracting. We have marked the pavillion with Social Distancing Baseball markings as we will follow the NYS guidelines in order to have an safe and enjoyable season.

All bleachers are closed as is general seating under the pavillion. Parents are encouraged to bring your own chairs and will have the opportunity to sit along all the fence lines.There is a rule under the Governors Executive Order that only two spectators per participant may attend. There is plenty of room for other spectators along the outfield fences which will provide a different but unique opportunity to watch a game from a different view.

Remember, wear a mask (for others) if you cannot br 6' feet apart. Masks are mandatory when coming to the concession stand. Please wash hands or sanitize as much as possible. All of the NYS guidelines are also posted here on the news feed.

If you are attending a game on Fields A, B or C please park in the East side parking lot (NYSEG).

League Play Guidelines

Social Distancing will be in effect at the ball park at all times.

Things to remember:

  • Please follow all the local, state and Little League guys 

  • Check your temperatures before coming to the ball park

  • If sick … Stay Home!

  • Pack Hand Sanitizer

  • Wash hands often

  • Have fun and enjoy that we were granted an opportunity to play baseball and softball.

  • The concession stand will be open with pre-packaged offerings, drinks and candy. Families may feel free to bring food items of their choice with them.Please be sure to dispose of trash appropriately!

  • When coming to the concession stand a face covering needs to be worn.

  • Players will be permitted to sit with their parents on their respective side of the ball field.

  • If so desired spectators may sit behind the outfield fences on fields where it is possible. 6-8 feet apart.

  • All players and spectators should leave the complex at the end of the game. Ideally within 20 minutes

What is not allowed:

  • No Handshakes, High Fives, fist or contact between players and coaches.

  • No chewing gum, spitting particularly sunflower seeds. Teams should not share any snacks or food.

  • Pitchers are not allowed to touch the ball and their mouth. Already a standard rule.

  • No sharing of any equipment.

  • Only the coach and on deck batter will be permitted in the dugout.

  • Bleachers are closed.

  • No running around or playing on any bleachers, unused fields or parking lots.

  • There should be no use of shared or team beverages.


Personal Protective Equipment (PPE):

  • All managers/coaches, volunteers, umpires, etc., should wear PPE whenever applicable and possible, such as cloth face coverings.

  • Players should wear cloth face coverings when in close contact areas and in places where recommended social distancing is challenging or not feasible, such as in dugouts.

  • Players should not wear protective medical gloves on the field during game play.

  • Players, especially at younger divisions, are not required to wear a cloth face covering while on the field during game play.

  • Players will be permitted to wear a cloth face covering on the field during game play, if physically able to do so, based on any directive of a medical provider or individual determination of the player/ parent/guardian/caretaker.


Player Equipment:

  • No personal player bat bags/equipment bags should be allowed in the dugout. Player equipment should be spaced accordingly outside the dugout to prevent direct contact.

  • Players should have their own individual batter’s helmet, glove, bat, and catcher’s equipment.

  • Measures should be enacted to avoid, or minimize, equipment sharing when feasible.

  • Some critical equipment may not be able to be obtained by every individual. When it is necessary to share critical or limited equipment, all surfaces of each piece of shared equipment must be cleaned first and then disinfected with an EPA-approved disinfectant against COVID-19 and allowed sufficient time to dry before used by a new player. Increased attention should be paid to detailed cleaning of all equipment directly contacting the head and face (catcher’s mask, helmets). Each team is being issued a Microban 24 disinfectant spray.

  • Player’s equipment (e.g. bags, helmets, bats, gloves, etc.) should be cleaned and disinfected after each use by a parent/ guardian/caretaker, where applicable.

  • Individuals disinfecting equipment are encouraged to use gloves while using disinfectants and follow the manufacturer’s directions for use. All disinfectants should be stored properly, in a safe area, out of the reach of children.

  • Players should not share towels, clothing, or other items that they may use to wipe their face or hands.


Baseballs and Softballs:

  • Baseballs and softballs should be rotated through on a regular basis, at least every two innings, to limit individual contact.

  • Umpires should limit their contact with the ball, and catchers should retrieve foul balls and passed balls where possible.

  • Balls used in infield/outfield warm-up should be isolated from a shared ball container.

Foul balls landing outside the field of play should be retrieved by participating players, coaches, and umpires. No spectators should retrieve the ball.
