Cody Chapman started this petition to Governor Kay Ivey and

GIVE ALABAMIANS THEIR RIGHT TO CHOOSE BACK! Please allow youth baseball leagues and tournaments to resume or begin play. Our youth are being deprived of playing baseball over something that there is not a vaccine for yet. The only way to combat this virus is by having a strong immune system. Staying indoors and away from people do not build a strong immune system. Baseball is not a physical touching sport or a close person to person sport. Yes, parents may be close in an area but we they can still do social distancing in smaller than 10 people per group. I am asking that the Governor and state officials please allow baseball to resume ASAP. Let the kids be kids where they can have fun and make childhood memories. Our business owners have sacrificed, our healthcare professionals have sacrificed and our parents have sacrificed. Most of all, our kids have sacrificed as they have been forced to shelter in place with no school and no recreational youth activities. Why can numerous people be allowed to gather on beaches but a youth baseball game that is held outside spread out over an entire field is not? Retail stores have been allowed to open at 50% capacity in an enclosed building but yet youth baseball that is outdoors and not confined to a small building is not? Baseball can be played safely with less risk unlike those permitted activities. Many youth have practiced for months leading up to this season. They have been practicing independently to be prepared for the season. The one bright spot for them during this horrible time has been the thought of baseball season. The start of youth sports that CAN be played following health and safety guidelines outside would do wonders for thousands of Alabama children. We are asking our Governor Ivey to take the next step in leadership and open back up our ballfields so our youth can get outdoors and do what they love most. LET’S PLAY BALL!
