We fully agree that this the responsible and prudent action to take especially considering the ages of our players. The Directors will keep you aware of any new RCTC Dome happenings.

BUT - the news is not all bad and Spring Ball and recruiting for players will start soon. Here are some key dates pertinent to Spring and Summer Ball. We can use your help in the recruiting efforts and results which will determine if we have 6 or 8 teams to start the season.

  • 4/15/2020 - Spring Training at McQuillan Fields - 10:00 AM. Open to all players!
  • 4/15, 4/17, 4/20, 4/22, and 4/24 - sign-up dates at McQuillan -- 9-11:00 AM

  • 5/4 - FIRST GAME of the 2020 Season (14th) at McQuillan
  • 5/27 - Draft for Session 2
Your RMSS Board of Directors

We have all reviewed many articles on COVID-19 recently but here's the BEST one I've seen. Be safe....


A “Do it yourself test” for Coronavirus 

(And Common-Sense Help from Stanford Hospital, California)

As you know, the new Coronavirus may not give you any symptoms for days AFTER you have it.  But here’s a simple test you can do before symptoms appear:

Take a deep breath and hold your breath for more than 10 seconds.  You can do this every morning.  If you complete this successfully without coughing, discomfort, stiffness or tightness, basically it proves there is no Fibrosis (scarring) in your lungs.

By the time you have symptoms of a fever and/or cough and then go to the hospital, your lungs can have 50% Fibrosis and it is unfortunately too late because Fibrosis is not reversible.

THE SYMPTOMS

1. It will first infect the throat, so you'll have a sore throat lasting 3/4 days.

2. The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia after another 5 - 6 days.

3. With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing.

4. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you're drowning. It's imperative you then seek immediate attention. Serious excellent advice by Japanese. Doctors treating COVID-19 cases advise everyone should ensure your mouth & throat are moist, never dry. Take a few sips of water every 15 minutes at least. Why? Even if the virus gets into your mouth, drinking water or other liquids will wash them down through your throat and into the stomach. Once there, your stomach acid will kill all the virus. If you don't drink enough water more regularly, the virus can enter your windpipe and into the lungs. That's very dangerous.

Other Helpful Information

1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold.

2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose.

3. This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees.  It hates the Sun.

4. If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne.

5. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours - so if you come into contact with any metal surface - wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap.

6. On fabric it can survive for 6-12 hours. Normal laundry detergent will kill it.

7. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice.

8. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes, but - a lot can happen during that time - you can rub your eyes, pick your nose unwittingly and so on.

9. You should also gargle as a prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice.

10. Can't emphasis enough - drink plenty of water!

Coronavirus Statement from Rochester Senior Softball at RCTC Dome - 3/12/2020

Coronavirus Update FOR DOME BALL PLAYERS - 3/12/2020

Everyone is aware of the warnings going out about the potential spread of the Coronavirus (COVid-19).

We are all in the high-risk population that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and other organizations are most concerned about with this virus. Given that, we don’t want to over-react, but feel that it is prudent for the league to keep our eyes open and be prepared to act if the trend continues.

For now, we’d like to request that anyone feeling any kind of cold or flu symptoms consider staying home until you’re feeling well again. If you’re missing games, please let your manager know!

We’re also going to encourage players to forego our traditional (bare-handed) hand-slap at the end of each game. Slapping gloved hands, elbows, etc. seem like reasonable alternatives. Time to get creative! Players may want to consider bringing a bottle of hand-sanitizer to their games for occasional use. Medical experts are currently NOT advising that people wear face masks or gloves unless they are ill or going into a healthcare setting where infected patients may be.

If you’re interested in what the CDC is advising (and you should be) here is a link to the CDC “Business advisory” page. This is probably the most applicable information relating to our league. 

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/specific-groups/guidance-business-response.html

There’s a lot of other good, fact-based information at the CDC site as well, such as what to consider doing at home or if you do become ill.

Until we hear further from reputable sources, this is our plan! We will be watching this developing problem and staying in touch with our hosts at the RCTC Dome and adjust our plans as needed.


Thanks! Let’s play ball!
