During the tournaments, several safety precautions were being followed by teams and those in attendance.
According to 2D Sports chief operations officer Ross Blankenship, fans were not allowed in the bleachers. Instead, were asked to practice social distancing, bringing their own seats. Coaches also had to wipe down dugouts before and after entry.
Todd Biever, coach of the New Orleans Nationals, said athletes were happy to have an opportunity to play.
“We have freshman and sophomores coming out here to play 18u. Umpires and fans have been great. Everyone has been social distancing,” says Biever. “It means a lot to get some experience.”
