Hi Millbrae Baseball Families,
We hope everyone is staying healthy and safe during these unique circumstances. With shelter-in-place orders still in effect, all fields remain closed and our Spring season remains suspended. We would still like to have a season, if possible, but the timeframe will definitely shift (possibly into the summer months). We continue to follow all state and local guidance, and will provide updates once we have more information.
Please remember to follow social distancing in support of the need to flatten the curve, as nothing is more important than the health and well-being of our loved ones and the community. All Millbrae fields (Taylor, Green Hills, Spring Valley, Lomita, Meadows, and Glen Oaks) remain closed, including the Taylor batting cage. Please do enjoy the sun and some time outdoors, but refrain from having any official or unofficial practices at this time.
Hope to see you all soon.
Millbrae Baseball Board
We understand the concern and uncertainty you may be experiencing surrounding the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and are committed to the health and well-being of our players and their families. Out of an abundance of caution, the Millbrae School District has decided to temporarily close all fields. Effective immediately, the Spring baseball season is suspended until further notice. This applies to all practices and games, as well as opening day activities previously scheduled for Saturday 3/14.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. The situation is very fluid and we will continue to monitor the latest developments and guidance in coordination with the Millbrae School District. We are hopeful that the situation will improve and will resume play once it is safe to do so.
We hope you and your families stay safe and will continue to keep you updated as we receive new information.

1. We want you and your child to have the best youth sports experience possible this season.
2. The role of the parent is to help your child enjoy their youth sports experience, and learn life lessons like:
- being a good teammate
- bouncing back from mistakes
- making new friends
- enjoying physical activity.
3. Parents please support the positive culture and expectations of your volunteer coach, and the league. This way your family will have a fantastic experience this season.

Looking forward to a great season. See you on Opening Day, Saturday, March 14.
Millbrae Lions Baseball Board.
Our Millbrae Lions Baseball Board keeps safety as a top priority, and we are closely monitoring local, state, and national health recommendations (San Mateo County Health, California Department of Public Health and CDC) given the increasing community-spread of COVID19 in the SF Bay Area. This is a dynamic situation, and recommendations continue to evolve. Our Board recommends the following to limit spread of infections:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Most importantly, this means having players and family members/friends stay home when they are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, and then throw the tissue in the trash. If unable to use a tissue, coughing or sneezing into your sleeve is the next best strategy. Do not cough or sneeze into your hands.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using household cleaning sprays or wipes. For coaches, recommendations will be to wipe shared bats and catchers masks after each practice and prior to shared use.
- Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds after going to the bathroom and before eating. If soap and water are not readily available, alcohol-based sanitizers with at least 60% alcohol can be used, but always use soap and water if hands are visibly dirty. This is especially important if your team is handing out post-game snacks.
- To limit spreading germs, we are asking that our teams celebrate by lining up and clapping (or other fun expression of sportsmanship) rather than pre/post-game high-fives, handshakes, hugs or other physical contact. Similar guidance applies for pre/post game team huddles.
We will continue to communicate and monitor official recommendations. Recommendations continue to evolve rapidly, so the most up to date information can always be found at the public health links above.
