PBSA Spring 2020 Announcement

Dear PBSA families,

 

Thank you all so much for your patience. While we have hoped to have parks back open and bats back to swinging by this time, a) the Governor announced this week that only sports with 4 or fewer people would be allowed to be played right now, and that’d potentially make for a VERY offensively-lopsided baseball game, and b) the Town of Prosper still has all fields closed until at least May 18th. Unfortunately, that means that we won’t have enough time to get in a Spring season this year for League/Recreational-Level baseball and softball programs. We know that with that comes many questions, so I’ll do my best to address them below, but you have to PROMISE me you’ll read thoroughly and follow the crystal clear directions I’ve given for any further questions you may have. Deal? Ok! Here we go...

 

Q: My child is on one of the League Recreational baseball and softball teams. What about our payment?

A: We will be issuing a prorated refund to all paid participants based on expenses already incurred this season (i.e. uniforms and some umpire and field usage fees).  So, everyone will be getting a refund for the amount of their registration minus $40.  The refund will be in the form of a credit to your account that can be used for future seasons…so Fall 2020 (hopefully), Spring 2021, or beyond.

 

Q: What if I want actual money back instead of the credit for a future season, how can I get a refund?

A: Well folks, this is a tough one... You see, if we were to do this, it requires our Treasurer to write and issue out individualized checks to every single family. We have literally thousands of families who were playing this season and, unfortunately, we do not have the (wo)man-power to issue those out to everyone. In fact, many of the other local sports organizations are not issuing any refunds at all and thought we were crazy for even discussing it considering the amount of time and effort it would take. However, we know some families are really hurting due to job loss, and we know that this may make a huge difference to them. Therefore, if you are in that position, you may directly contact our Treasurer, Nikki Sheely, at bnsheely@sbcglobal.net to request a check written to you for a refund. However, PLEASE consider that we are all volunteers with full-time jobs and families, so if you have ANY capacity to defer the money to a future season, we truly appreciate the thoughtfulness that you are offering to lessen this massive undertaking. If you are opting to accept the credit that I discussed above but decide in the future that you don’t wish to play again, you can request this refund at that time, as well.  Again, please contact Treasurer, Nikki Sheely, at bnsheely@sbcglobal.net, because I will not have answers beyond this information. 

 

Q: What about jerseys and hats? Do we have to give them back?

A: Eeeew gross, please don’t. The uniforms are part of that $40 that will not be able to be credited and can be your “souvenir” from the weirdest baseball season ever. 

 

Q: I’m a coach and have equipment... is that my souvenir, too?

A: Hahaha oh you’re funny, nice try! You will be receiving an email from our Equipment Director, Dee Harris, containing specific drop off dates, times and locations, so please be on the lookout for that in the near future.

 

Q: What about Spikes and Pride Select Tournament Teams? Does this decision include us?

A: Because select team tournaments have the potential to be played throughout the summer, Spikes and Pride Tournament teams are still “on hold/pending” for determining whether they’ll be able to play this season. At this point, we still do not have access to Town facilities to practice on, so keep your fingers crossed and keep practicing on your own in hopes of playing!!  For questions, please contact your Spikes or Pride coach directly, and if they don’t have the answer, you may contact our AA Director, Wayne Whitmire, at wayne.pbsa@gmail.com, because I will not have answers beyond this information. 

 

Q: We purchased tickets to the PBSA Rough Rider game. Is that still being played?

A: All of baseball, professionals included, are on hold right now. Any refunds for ticket purchases would come through contacting the Rough Riders ticket office directly.  Please contact our Fundraising Director, Bill Anderson, at banderson@constantcare.com, because I will not have answers beyond this information. 

 

Q: We miss baseball! This stinks! What else can we do?

A: Besides continuing to practice on your own as a family, please consider supporting other players who are missing a HUGE year by supporting the Prosper High School Senior baseball players. This Friday, May 1st, at 5:30pm, everyone in the community is invited to show up at the MPF on campus and have a car parade for the seniors who didn’t get to play their last year. Please spread the word and come support them! I have no more information beyond this, but Prosper Magazine Facebook has postings on this event.

I’m sure I’ve forgotten something because I always do, but hopefully that covers as much crucial information as everyone needs at this time. Again, we cannot thank you enough for sticking with us and trying to make this season happen. We are beyond disappointed, as I’m sure y’all are, too. But we hope that you’ve found new ways to connect with your families and make amazing baseball memories together, and we will look forward to a Fall 2020 season when we can all get back out on the fields together!!!

 

 

Sincerely, 

Sarah Feuerbacher Wells
