ONEONTA – Cooperstown All Star Village has cancelled its youth baseball tournament for the week of June 6, Week One of its 2020 season, proprietor Marty Patton said this morning.
For now, he said, the idea is to continue to cancel a month in advance, week by week, in hopes of being able to hold at least some of the tournaments later in the summer, depending on how the coronavirus threat plays out.
“To the local community, I just say this: Brenda and I have lived here most of our lives. We would never risk our community or those wonderful people who are coming from all over to visit,” Patton said.
