Vaccines typically take 6 to 10 years to develop...with all the resources they are going to pour into developing one (e.g. see what Bill Gates is doing on that front) it hopefully be much shorter than that but the often quoted 1 to 1.5 years is a long shot...When does a vaccination come? Until then we are not going to see any type of mass group gathering permitted as long as the virus can spread. The only other thing outside of a vaccination is a 5 minute test that can sense if you have the virus with 100% certainty. And I don’t see that being created
We have already had one kid on my DD's team whose mother's business cannot operate in the current conditions so they have chosen to move around with the father who works in the oil and gas business and hence will no longer be on the team.There is going to be a lot of players whose parents cant afford to play. They have lost their jobs and softball will be low on the pole as priorities. This wont effect everyone, maybe not half but 30-40% is projected for unemployment. Let’s say 20% of parents cant afford to travel for the projected schedule that is set. What does that leave som teams with? Is it worth it to go with out a full set of regular players? Then on the other hand, I can see teams doing some pickup for the ones that can afford to go. That could make some really good competition or it can be hodge podge of players.
Yeah but then everybody would join me out there...no thanks.I think you would be allowed to keep your right field spot. Definitely qualifies as socially distant.
yeah I think when the nfl season gets canceled people will lose their minds and then realize this is going to be a long time. The medical experts within the nfl are already telling the commish and owners they feel that the chance of having an nfl season is less than 5% in their expert medical opinion.I think pro sports will be the bellwether for youth sports. Once the pros start back, youth sports start back. Not anticipating any summer pro sports.
