Prune Packers Update
The Prune Packers 2020 Summer Baseball Season has begun. (The 100th baseball season at historic Recreation Park.) We will be following all safety guidelines and will be highly sensitive to the Covid-19 challenge posed upon our community but we believe that baseball can be safely and responsibly played in Healdsburg and Northern California this summer. Thank you to all for your support as we navigate through these uncharted times.

A Message to Players, Parents and Host Families
As we learn more about the Covid-19 virus and are allowed, by our local health leaders, to expand our personal safety zones (our social bubbles), we are asking our players, parents and host families to have the utmost respect for each other’s health and safety. Please let each other know that you and yours have been symptom free for at least 14 days and that you will follow personal, family and community safety protocols as our personal safety zones unfold. Our goal is to provide safe and healthy recreation during our games and that when players move back and forth from home to the baseball stadiums, their health and safety and the health and safety of those around them is not compromised. We are also in the process of having players and staff take the Covid-19 test that is administered for free in Santa Rosa. The link for that free testing is here.
