News And Announcements

  1. 2021 Practice Time at Strehl Fields

    Published Wednesday, November 11, 2020

    It is time to start thinking about the 2021 practice season.  SPAA will be renting out the fields and batting cages at Strehl at a rate of $16/90 minutes.  There are no lights at Strehl.  Portable mounds will be available for use.  ABSOLUTELY NO METAL SPIKES ARE ALLOWED!  Bases are not provided. 

    February and March time will be available to 2021 SPAA teams only.  Once you set your team up (registration will be open by December 7) you will be able to request the available free times.  These are only free for February and March.  Starting April 1 all teams pay the same $16 for 90 minutes rate.  

    **Bathrooms will be open once the threat of freezing temperatures is gone, which is generally April 1**

    Reservations for April - October of 2021 will be accepted in written form only (email) beginning November 16 at 9 AM.  Emails have time stamps and those sent prior to 9 AM will go to the bottom of the list.  Once I am able to confirm your time I will send you an email with the amount you will owe.  You will be given 10 days to either mail a check or call in with a credit card to cover the payment.  After 10 days if you have not paid your balance due your rental time will be given to the next person requesting it.  Once your payment is received we will email out a permit for you to keep with you at all time. We totally anticipate being full again this year, so if you want time be sure and get your request and payment in on time. 

    You may request rental time through October 2021.  Any requested time for August, September and October will be permitted out but not billed until the end of October to ensure as many credits were able to be used as possible.  All April through July time will be billed immediately and must be paid in full within 10 days.  All credit for 2021 will expire October 31, 2021.

    The following times will be offered:

    Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays

    5 – 6:30 or 6:30 – 8

    9 – 10:30; 10:30 – noon; noon – 1:30; 1:30 – 3; 3 – 4:30; 4:30 – 6

  3. COVID-19 Guidelines

    Published Wednesday, June 10, 2020

    SPAA COVID-19 Guidelines for playing

    1. Social distancing should be used at all times per the current CDC guidelines.
    2. Individuals should practice good hygiene including washing hands with soap and water, using hand sanitizer especially after touching surfaces, avoid touching their face, and sneeze or cough into a tissue. 
    3. The City of St. Peters has taken the bleachers out of the parks, so parents should bring their own chair and social distance.   
    4. Concession stands will be open.  Splatter shields will be used until they are no longer needed.  Patrons should follow social distancing while in line.
    5. SPAA is not allowed to fill any outside jugs, water bottles or cups so be sure and bring your own water and ice for those containers.
    6. Spitting is not allowed, including sunflower seeds.  Sunflower seeds will not be sold or allowed at the parks. 
    7. SPAA will have 30 minutes between game times each evening to help alleviate crowds forming between games, as well as, to allow SPAA staff to disinfect the dugouts.

    Modified Game Rules

    1. Dugouts – Coaches and players are asked to maintain 6 ft. social distancing while in the dugouts.  This will require some players and coaches to stay out of the dugouts.  Fences will be marked for a point of reference. 
    2. No incoming teams are allowed in the dugouts until all players and coaches from the previous games have left
    3. No team water coolers are allowed.  All players should bring their own water bottles with their name or numbers marked clearly on the bottle.
    4. During Ground Rules - Only 1 coach from each team (NO PLAYERS ALLOWED).  Umpires and Coaches should still be practicing social distancing during ground rules.
    5. Coaches are not allowed out on the field to argue calls. 
    6. Any mound visit must maintain 6 foot distance.  Base and sideline coaches must maintain 6 foot distances and should not touch any player on the field.
    7. SPAA Umpires working behind the plate will be wearing a face mask.  If they choose to call balls and strikes from the field, behind the pitcher, facemasks are optional.  For ages 9U and up, 2 umpires will be provided when available. 
    8. Players after Game – No Handshaking will be allowed.  Tip your hats to the opposing team.
    9. T-Ball teams and Pitching Machine League teams – No catchers are required.  Any team wishing to use a catcher may.  If a team wants to use multiple catchers throughout the game it is up to the team to be sure the gear is sanitized between catchers unless the player has their own equipment.
    10. No equipment should be shared (i.e. glove, helmet, bats and catching equipment) without being sanitized
    11. Teams should use the areas behind the interior fences (if available) to warm-up before games.

    **These rules may be changed by SPAA at any time due to any new city or county requirements.  SPAA asks all teams to follow the parks rules that have been outlined.
