By  | 

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now)- Things may be slowly looking bright in prep sports as one league started practices today with hopes of competing in the summer. Wyoming American Legion State Baseball Commissioner, Cody Beers, has opened practices for all Legion teams starting on Monday, May 4.

"To be able to get started today we we're excited about it,” Cheyenne Post 6 Manager, Ty Lain said. “There’s a lot of work ahead of us, there's still some hurdles we got to climb."

Teams will not be able to play games during this time and are prohibited from using any fields that are city property. Only nine people are allowed at each practice, forcing the team to divide their players into different practices, at different locations. Coaches and players are the only people allowed to be at the facility during the practices.

"We're just excited that we can do anything baseball wise. There was a time that we thought we might not do anything baseball at all. We’re going to take advantage of the opportunity that we have right now and try to make the most of it and do the best we can."

The next phase of the opening would allow a gathering of 50 people, allowing the teams to play without spectators.
