Safety Guidelines

  1. You need to social distance (minimum 6 feet) yourself from one another at all times. This means before, during and after practice.

  3. Keep bags and gear in foul territory well away from one another.
  4. Wash or sanitize your hands before and after practice. If using hand soap wash your hands for a minimum of 20 seconds. If you are using hand sanitizer be sure it is at least 60% alcohol.
  5. NO sharing of any equipment (bats, gloves, protective gear, etc.)
  6. If you are not feeling well (fever, sore throat, cough, difficulty breathing) stay home.
  7. If you have been exposed to somebody with Covid-19 stay home.
  8. NO seeds, gum or spitting while at practice.
  9. If you are wearing a face covering do not touch it.
  10. Avoid touching your face, mouth or eyes during the practice.
  11. Bring your own water bottle labeled with your name and keep it with your gear.

We say goodbye to a longtime friend

We have some very sad news to share about one of our very own. Michael Guenther passed away suddenly on Sunday, February 16, 2020.  

Michael graduated from Saline High School in 1974 and was employed by Saline Area Schools for over 20 years.He also was the Head Coach of one of the best travel baseball teams in Saline history, the Saline Yellowjackets. He was very well-known as a great baseball umpire all over the state of Michigan and touched the lives of many players and coaches throughout the  state. He loved making an impact on the youth. 

In lieu of flowers, the family have suggested donations to be made to Saline Area Youth Baseball & Softball in honor of their father

Please keep the Guenther family in your thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
