Facial coverings are required where social distancing cannot be consistently maintained.
a. This means if a player or coach is within 6 feet of another player or coach, they will have to wear a facial covering. Batters and umpires will be required to wear a facial covering. Batters will be allowed to remove their facial covering when they reach base. All defensive players will not be required to wear facial coverings while on the field.
b. Players MUST wear a facial covering when they are in the dugout (including the extended dugout), in team huddles, and when there is an offensive or defensive conference.
c. Coaches MUST wear a facial covering in the dugout (including the extended dugout), team huddles, during conferences and during the pregame meeting at home plate.
d. Spectators MUST wear a facial covering if they cannot remain 6 feet from other spectators.
e. This facial covering rule is in effect for all USA Softball of Massachusetts events (leagues, tournaments, scrimmages, etc.), whether the team is a Massachusetts based team or out of state team. Just because a state does not have a facial covering rule does not mean an out of state team does not have to follow Massachusetts EEA rules.

Player’s safety is our NUMBER 1 priority. Please follow these guidelines provided by the state to keep everyone safe.
Season starts in a couple of days. Good luck and let’s have a great season.




Opening Day is scheduled for this Saturday May 15th with a rain date of Sunday May 16th.
