Dear HAC Families of registered baseball/softball players for 2020:

We hope you are all remaining safe and healthy while we continue to stay at home.  We appreciate your patience as we continue to review state & local public health authority restrictions and guidelines. The Stay Safe Ohio Order signed by Director of ODH, Dr Acton on April 30, 2020, shall remain in full force and effect until 11:59 p.m. on May 29, 2020, unless the director rescinds or modifies this Order at a sooner time and date.  With the restrictions stated in this order, the HAC will be extending our temporary delay of the 2020 baseball/softball season thru May 29th.  Our hope is that state & local authorities will soon lift the restrictions so our kids will be permitted to come together safely and play ball this summer.

The HAC uses many different fundraisers to supplement our player registrations in order to cover operating expenses and capital improvements throughout the years.  Our in-registration fundraiser of the (3) Orange Cards is typically used for capital improvements, and players are able to sell those cards to friends and family to recoup their $30 value.  If on-going restrictions don’t allow us to resume our season, we will need to use the funds from this fundraiser to cover many of the ongoing expenses to minimally maintain the facilities & fields this year.  For all paid rec team registrants, you should have or will soon be receiving your 3 orange cards to use or sell to support our local business partners.  If you are in the few that still need to pay your registration fees and would like your (3) Orange Cards, please review your account online for payment.  We would also like to extend an opportunity for you to donate all or a portion of this year’s registration to help defer the on-going operating expenses.  We understand that everyone is in a different situation during these trying times, so if you require a refund, no problem.  We will issue a refund for the registration fee minus $30 per player that goes to our Orange Card fundraiser.

If state & local authorities do give us the green light to open our fields and play ball, we want to start as quickly as possible.  Either way this season plays out..play ball or stay at home.. we need to hear from you!  We are including a short survey that will need to be completed by a parent/guardian for each player that is currently registered in our 2020 rec baseball/softball season.  The survey needs to be completed by 5 p.m. Friday May 8th, 2020.
