Will Chart 2020

WEST ONEONTA – Marty Patton, owner of Cooperstown All-Star Village, today announced the youth-baseball park has put together a flexible plan that may allow it to function through the 2020 season.

“We have decided to make a decision regarding the 2020 tournament… four weeks in advance of each week,” Patton wrote in a public letter.  Players’ families and coaches will then be advised if the tournaments will happen the weeks they are registered.

This week-by-week approach contrasts with Cooperstown Dreams Park’s decision to cancel the 2020 season outright.

Governor Cuomo has said the coronavirus influx may peak in 45 days, which would see a decline beginning in early May, a month before the youth-baseball tournament players would arrive.

    Perhaps he should share his refund policy as well? Unless of course, he doesn’t allow that.

    Marty Patton, on a name we know so well!! He’s acting a though he’s making his decisions based on the kids, and what they’d miss out on!! What a joke!! He makes more in one week then most around here make in a YEAR!! Has he offered to donate anything to help families that are suffering due to not being able to work!! OF COURSE NOT!!! I know first hand, I worked there!! He makes his living off of FAMILIES, baseball and children.He cannot stand kids,I’ve seen him berate a young college girl over a mistake and he bring her to tears!! I saw him tell at two little boys who were taking pictures in front of his new fountain and were touching it!! He said and I quote verbatim (because I’ll never forget it, I’m sure those boys won’t either), your father’s don’t make enough money to pay for it if you break it, so STAY AWAY!! HE won’t cancel unless he’s forced to!

    That will be the health department’s decision, not the owner. Until there is a vaccine, adequate testing, onsite screening, effective quarantines and adequate capacity at hospitals, gatherings of tourists is not likely to happen any month soon. Start planning for next year.
