After an emergency league meeting among the Chippewa Rivers Baseball League (CRBL) managers and officers, the CRBL has decided to dismiss “league play” for the 2020 season. The decision was due to a CRBL player testing positive for Covid-19 and the potential of further exposure to other players, coaches, fans and umpires.
The CRBL schedule released on June 27th will remain in place, however, the games will not be considered Chippewa River Baseball League games. Additionally, each CRBL team manager will have the authority to cancel or postpone games for safety concerns.
Local media members should contact each individual manager for coverage of games. Please visit information below for each managers contact information.
