Any schools placing limits on spectators for softball this upcoming season?
Very true, played baseball outside all summer long without an issue. This past weekend, however, my son's college team played in the state of Illinois and they had limited home spectators (2/player w/reservation) and ZERO visiting spectators. Think it was a conference rule as the same thing happened the prior week in Missouri. Thank goodness they are now done with non-conference games and we can get back to live spectating. Hopefully no schools in Ohio are this crazy strict so all the high school kids can have a normal season. BTW, son's team also played in Tennessee....no restrictions.Why would they put a restriction on spectators? It’s outside? We played an entire summer league last year, not 1 mask was worn, only restrictions were they taped off directly behind home plate.
I am sure that should the state drop their limits the OHSAA would drop theirs... Once the tourney started and they get the money.I think a safe limit for a baseball or softball game would be around 200 fans. If it takes less than a minute to count all the fans, it's not something to worry about. Also, there is a chance that the numbers for Covid continue to drop and we could get rid of all limits. Putting these limits out there before the season likely means we will live with limits all season even if there is no need.
