Some positive baseball news surrounds the corona misery

The Bonn Capitals (German First Bundesliga) announced that six players of the German National team are allowed by the City of Bonn to start practicing again.

Bonn Capitals – WikipediaWith a link to the website of the City of Bonn, the club sent out a Tweet this morning. The aforementioned website states that the city allows the six internationals (Vincent Ahrens, Eric Brenk, Sascha Koch, Max Schmitz, Kevin van Meensel, and Maurice Wilhelm) to start practicing again but that this is an exception.

The Capitals agreed on measures stated in a hygiene catalog. The measures these players need to take are washing and disinfecting their hands, keeping six feet distance,  and wearing masks. Also, training equipment must be disinfected. Only two players are allowed in the locker room at the same time. Physical contact is forbidden and groups must be avoided at all times.

The Bonn Capitals won the German championship for the first time in 2018. Last year the club made the championship series again but did not stand a chance against the Heidenheim Heideköpfe, which won its third title in the past five years.

So far, the start of the German season has been postponed until further notice. Originally it was postponed until the weekend of 9-10 May but the circumstances forced the DBV (German Baseball Federation) to abandon a fixed date.

With baseball started in Taiwan and about to start in Korea, this is some positive news from the European baseball front.
