Governor Bill Lee on Thursday issued further guidance for baseball and softball activities among other sports.
These include: limiting group sizes and mixing, maintaining six feet of distance from others when not on the field of play.
Also athletes should wear masks when not on the field of play, spectators should wear face masks and maintain social distancing, coaches and umpires should create physical markings in dugouts, benches or other areas of play as reminders of social distancing among other measures.
Under Executive Order No.
38 issued May 22, non-contact sports may resume under certain precautions, including efforts to maintain social distancing, wear masks when feasible and added sanitization measures.
Sports that may return under the current guidelines include but are not limited to baseball, softball, volleyball, golf, disc golf, tennis and racket sports, cycling, track and field and other running events, and equestrian. Contact sports such as football, wrestling, and hockey are not permitted except for practicing in a manner that does not involve close physical contact with other persons.
