Every effort will be made to adhere to these guidelines and they are subject to change based on county and state updates. For the most up to date official guidance, please visit
2020 EMW Guidelines and Rule Modifications:

C. If you are sick.
D. Anyone in your household is sick or had contact with someone that is sick.
3. Minimize the number of family members and fans entering the parks. Parents with players in our Summer Sizzle Program are encouraged to drop players off to keep crowds from forming.
4. Spectators should bring their own chairs and maintain good social distancing with all non-family members. Please do not sit behind the back stop.

8. PPEs: Any umpire, staff member, parent or player who chooses to wear personal protective equipment (PPE), such as masks, glasses, or gloves can do so any time, at any position (including pitcher).
9. Teams must clean up all trash at the conclusion of the game. No Player/Coaches/Spectators may congregate around a field until it is completely clear of players from previous game.
