Lowes Creek COVID Guidelines for Games

Lowes Creek Nation!!

Thank you to all for supporting our efforts to offer quality youth baseball to our Lowes Creek Family! We want to make sure we maintain a good relationship with the local health department and ensure safety for all. Here are a few reminders:

  • Families should sit together around the field: white flags mark each spot
  • Children who are not playing should sit with their families
  • Bleachers and areas between fields including the bullpen are for players only
  • Avoid standing near the concession stand

Also a friendly reminder to read and follow the COVID-19 safety requirements for players and attendees (attached). 

Thank you 

Lowes Creek Board of Directors 



Lowes Creek Baseball 2020 Season Update (6/13/2020)

Greetings Lowes Creek Baseball Families,

Thank you for your patience and flexibility during this spring of uncertainty. It is finally time to “Play Ball!” 

Lowes Creek Baseball worked proactively with the Eau Claire City-County Health Department to help ensure a safe and enjoyable environment for baseball of all ages. The Department’s latest health order allows team-based baseball activities to resume provided certain standards and guidelines are met. 

The player draft occurred earlier this week and coaches will be in touch with you soon to begin team practices. 

Based on the existing Eau Claire City-County Health Department order from June 10, we are preparing a tentative schedule and hope to begin playing games in late June or early July. The latest health order does not prohibit games, but due to the fluidity of COVID-19 and the potential changes to future orders and guidance, please know Lowes Creek Baseball will continue to review and assess our ability to play games so players, coaches, and families can safely enjoy baseball this summer.  A follow-up email with additional details and tentative schedules will follow. 

As practices start, please review and follow the attached Lowes Creek Baseball guidelines regarding fan attendance and player requirements. Following these standards and recommendations will be critical so the Health Department continues to view youth baseball favorably during COVID-19.

Thank you again for your ongoing patience and flexibility as we navigate these interesting times. We look forward to seeing you (from at least 6 feet away) at the ballpark. 

All the best,

Mark McCarthy, President

Lowes Creek T-Ball Announcement

Greetings Lowes Creek T-Ball Families,

As the weather warms, days grow longer, and summer nears, we hope this finds you and your family in good health. 

Unfortunately, the COVID-19 situation threw a curveball at our plans and Lowes Creek is unable to offer T-Ball this year.

Please know Lowes Creek Baseball worked proactively with the Eau Claire City-County Health Department to help ensure a safe and enjoyable environment for baseball of all ages. The Department’s latest health order finally allows team-based baseball activities to resume with many standards and guidelines, but the Lowes Creek Baseball board believes it cannot in good faith offer T-Ball in a safe manner under existing guidelines and best practices.

Your registration fee for T-Ball will be refunded in full.

Thank you for registering your child for T-Ball with Lowes Creek Baseball and we are sorry we cannot offer T-Ball this year. We hope you will consider returning to Lowes Creek in 2021.

All the best,

Mark McCarthy, President

Ballpark Upgrades by Hoeft Builders

Hoeft Builders donated their time today to build new walls around the restrooms and install guard rails along the top of all the fencing around the fields.  Everything looks great!

Thanks for donating your time to help our league!!!

Message from National Babe Ruth President (5/1/2020)

Babe Ruth League, Inc has always been deeply committed to providing all of our participants with the very best educational sports experience possible in a safe and enjoyable environment.  We thank you for your patience, understanding, and support as we navigate through these unparalleled times. 
It is the goal of Babe Ruth League, Inc. to achieve a complete 2020 local league season so everyone can participate in the game they love. It remains our hope that once permission is granted by state and local health officials, we’ll return to our community fields and play as much baseball and softball as we can for the remainder of the 2020 year. We’ll be encouraging our commissioners to extend local league play into the summer and fall months in order to permit a full season for everyone.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, timelines are now flexible. Commissioners in your state will work with league presidents to discuss if and when district and state tournaments can take place.
Information regarding Regional Tournaments and World Series dates and locations will  be forthcoming as we explore other opportunities and formats in the next several weeks once our leagues get back up and running.
Until we meet again on the diamond, we ask you to focus on the guidelines set by local, state and federal governments to make sure we all do our part to ensure the health, well-being and safety of our players, families, volunteers and fans.  
Be sure to stay connected with Babe Ruth League through our email, social media and websites for the most up to date information.

Ballpark Upgrades

Bandi Henke and his CVTC students (along with Lance Gurney-LCB Board) repaired the overhead netting between RCU and CVOSM fields.  They also added new foul poles, a net to keep foul ball from entering the woods near Forster Field, and also removed the old fence guard rails.

Thanks for donating your time to help our league!!!
