The coronavirus has done a number on sports throughout the USA. There is no March Madness, High School teams will not realize the joy of winning a state championship title, Indoor professional games are being squashed with every passing day, opening day for Minor League baseball teams has been delayed indefinitely, and so on.

Opening Day for Amity Baseball, Softball, Tennis and Volleyball is scheduled for Monday, April 13, but only time will tell when the games will actually begin.

BOWA schools will be closed for two weeks, so that also will have an impact.

Take care everyone. And do everything you can to stay healthy.
