Update April 30th, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has made it impossible to run the usual Spring season so we will instead run a Spring/Summer season starting with practice on May 15th, games starting June 12th and end of season on July 31st.

We will play a 12 game season (10 games for 4U) and there will be no post season tournament. Each age division’s 1st and 2nd place finishers will be awarded.

Update: APRIL 29TH, 2020

The City of Norman has released a new plan called Healthier at Home that will be in place on May 1st. It is a three phased approach to slowly open Norman business and public facilities. Learn more about the plan on the NormanOK.gov website.

The highlights for us are:

  • May 15th (Phase 1B) - Organized youth sports can begin practicing.
  • June 12th (Phase 3) - Organized youth sports can begin playing games.

Needless to say, our May 4th start date is no longer in place. Once we begin, we will proceed with caution and follow all CDC and local guidelines set for social distancing and sanitation. As Norman meets the phase goals in the “Healthier at Home” plan, we will continue to move forward. 

We are currently working on updating the spring/summer schedules and will release details soon. 


UPDATE: APRIL 27TH, 2020

The league "start" date of May the 4th has been postponed. We are working on a phased "Return to Play" plan for baseball and softball. Our plan will be in coordination with city officials and we will take a careful and thoughtful approach as we keep families safety at the forefront. 

We feel good about the direction we are heading as it will offer good value for our league teams and an updated season schedule. More information about the plan will be announced ASAP.


Update: April 14th, 2020

Spring/Summer tournament schedule has been reworked to be more fluid. I have contacted all coaches that have pre-paid for tournaments. See the new Tournament schedule here


Update: April 8th, 2020

We are setting a new league start date of May 4th, 2020. This is our new target date and as we are all aware this could change based on information and guidance from our health care professionals, city and state leaders.

Over the next couple of weeks we will be adjusting the league schedule and format to fit within our Spring timeframe. We are confident we can get in at least 10 league games as well as the post season tournament. 

Thanks everyone, stay healthy and happy. See you at the ballpark, soon!


UPDATE: March 25th, 2020

Spring season will NOT start on April 6th. After the City of Norman's stay at home mandate ends, we will re-evaluate. 

Norman Baseball and Softball will not be cancelled. We will find a way to play ball. Our mission is to provide the best youth baseball and softball experience to our Norman community and we intend to do just that.

Our board and coordinators have their ears to the ground and we are adjusting our plan as new information rolls in. Until then, stay safe and healthy and we will see you at the ballpark as soon as this is over.


Update: March 17th, 2020

Ball Clubs of Norman Griffin and Reaves ball parks will be closed until April 6th. We ask that our teams follow CDC, State and City guidelines in order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Gathering in groups for practice or scrimmages is not recommended and will not be allowed at our ballparks or indoor batting cages. Once we get closer to April 6th, we will re-evaluate.

We are all disappointed about delaying the start of baseball and softball but the best thing we can do right now is to support our healthcare professionals and city leaders. Follow the guidelines they set for public health & safety and we will be back to playing ball as soon as we can. Thank you.
