Imperial’s coed softball league in holding pattern

    Much like everything else amid COVID-19, planning for summer coed softball games remains up in the air.
    Coordinators of Imperial’s coed league are among those in a holding pattern on whether to make plans or just wait things out.
    Jennifer Stafford, who with her husband Derek, has organized the league for many years and said they are unsure about a 2020 league, but are keeping some options open.
    Normally, the league starts the week after Memorial Day on Monday nights, playing at Imperial’s Schroeder Park. This year, that would have fallen on June 1.
    However, nothing is organized as of now, she said, because there are so many unknowns.
    One of those unknowns is whether Gov. Pete Ricketts will okay adult softball and baseball leagues, like he has for youth programs starting June 1. At this time, adult leagues are still in limbo.
    Stafford said if there are teams interested in playing a shortened season, maybe four weeks or even just a weekend tournament, she will take team contact names and let them know if something develops later in summer.
    People who want to get a team name on the list for some potential games later can contact Stafford at 402-874-0850.
