EEE update - New Schedules Posted

On September 13th, the town of Holden announced on their Facebook page that "mosquito samples taken within town limits have tested positive for EEE".

As a result, all game schedules have been adjusted to have the latest weekend game start be 4:00PM through October 15th. Also, there will be no weeknight games through October 15th.

Please check your team pages for updated schedules. If, by October 15th, there has been no frost, we may need to cancel weeknight games (starting on 10/15) until we get a frost. 

Thank you for your understanding on the rapidly changing schedules.

Fall Baseball - EEE concerns

Hello Holden Baseball families,

Please be advised that due to the recent concerns, locally, regarding the potential spread of Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE), the Board of Holden Baseball voted Tuesday night, Sep. 10, to cancel all Fall Baseball outdoor activities after dusk. This decision is in alignment with other Town of Holden organizations with evening activities. This restriction will stay in effect until the first hard frost. As a result, there will be no 7:00 or 7:30 games until further notice.

Games times will be adjusted in order to accommodate the change in scheduling. Coaches will be receiving schedule changes to communicate to parents ASAP.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, however the Board of Holden Baseball believes keeping the health and safety of players, coaches, umpires and spectators to be most important.

Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) is a rare but serious illness spread by the bite of an infected mosquito. While EEE can infect people of all ages, people under15 years of age or over 50 years of age are at greatest risk for serious illness.

Individuals are encouraged to take simple precautions to reduce risk, specifically to follow the 5 D’s:

Dawn and Dusk – stay indoors when mosquitoes are most active

DEET – use insect repellent with DEET or other natural repellents

Dress – wear long sleeves and pants to cover exposed skin

Drain – remove standing water from kiddie pools, flower pots, tires, etc.

Repairing holes in window or door screens is also encouraged.
