Tuesday morning, Mar. 17, 2020, the Highline Bears summer collegiate baseball team released a letter to players and an additional letter to fans.
Below is a copy of the letter that was issued to fans:
To say it bluntly, it’s been one stressful week. COVID-19 has hit pause on our country and changed our lives in what seems like a matter of hours and days. For most, if not all of our players their college seasons have been suspended or canceled. We’re not sure what the next few days, weeks or months really hold for the Highline Bears.
This is going to affect us all in ways we don’t even see yet, and changes or adjustments are inevitable. As of today Tuesday, March 17, 2020 the Highline Bears are hoping and continuing to plan on having a season. We believe now, more than ever you, our players, and our community need something positive to look forward to. With that said, we will monitor and comply with all state and federal regulations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are aware that a lot of changes can happen within the next two months.
The safety of our players, staff, fans, and community are the most important priority to us. Moving forward we will continue to have updates for you as things change, and we will do everything within our power to make sure we can have baseball this summer. Any changes to postpone, or cancel the season will not be taken lightly and will be a last measure taken.
In the meantime, we highly suggest everyone follow the state and federal suggestions of social distancing. Anything we can do as individuals to slow/beat this thing can, in the long run help save lives and help insure we are back in the stadium this summer.
If you want to help support the Highline Bears and our players here are a few ways you can:
- Support our local businesses and partners. They are the lifeblood of our organization and community, if they cannot thrive we cannot either. We will be releasing links to local restaurants with take out options available daily.
- Buy Highline Bears Merchandise: shop.highlinebears.com
- Purchase Highline Bears tickets. www.highlinebears.com/tickets (In the event a game is postponed or canceled tickets can be exchanged for a later date. All season tickets can receive a full refund)
