Message from the MHSBCA

With Governor Whitmer's orders, it's imperative to stay home, stay safe.  We have to end the spread of COVID-19 now, so there is a chance at returning to normalcy. This includes a shot at your baseball season in Michigan.  Take this SERIOUS! 

Please follow us on Twitter @MHSBCA1. The sharing that is going on right now is next level.  Encourage your players to get creative in finding ways to stay game ready, while practicing social distancing.  The longer COVID-19 is a part of our life, the less chance we have of playing in 2020.

Lastly, the MHSBCA E-Board is getting the same information you are.  Please watch the news and check for further information.

-Todd Szalka, MHSBCA President
