It has been, still is, and probably will be a long road back to normalcy for all sports in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
However, that road is shaping up to be a shorter one in Mississippi per the most recent executive order of Governor Tate Reeves.
Starting June 1st, Governor Reeves is lifting his ban on all gatherings, increasing the indoor limit to 50 people and the outdoor limit to 100.
That timeline coincides perfectly with the MHSAA and the NCAA who are both using June 1st as their restart dates.
Reeves says “starting Monday, a baseball game can have up to 100 people around the ball field. If there are situations where social distancing is not possible most of the time you can have outdoor gatherings of no more than 50 and indoor gatherings of up to 20.”
That officially opens the door for the Deep South Summer Collegiate Baseball League founded by Gulfport Assistant Coach Colton Caver set to start on June 13th.
