Flores said they are still working on plans incase there is another COVID-19 delay this year.
“Our main focus is keeping our kids and their parents safe,” Flores said. “One of the focuses we have is to make sure every athlete has their own equipment by CDC guidelines. Our priority is for each id to have their own bat and own helmet. We are also trying to see how to make sure everyone has those resources. Not everyone can afford that.”
