An Alliance Baseball League junior varsity coach has tested positive for COVID.


This is the first positive test in two months of play for the 29-team league.


The coach notified league officials Friday afternoon that he had contracted the virus and currently is in quarantine.


The team’s players will need to be tested or quarantined for 14 days, showing no symptoms before returning to the field.


All games scheduled for the team have been canceled until further notice.


The coach was last with his team three days ago at Bartlett High School.


To comply with the Municipality-approved mitigation plan, all facilities used by individuals with positive case of COVID-19 will shut down for 72 hours to allow for natural deactivation of the virus.


That means today’s final two games of the varsity Matson Invitational at Bartlett High School have been moved to Kosinski Fields. In addition, the facility at Bartlett High School will be sanitized.


All of the junior varsity games scheduled for Friday have been canceled.
