Suspension of baseball activities

Updated March 18, 2020

The following is the statement released by Baseball BC:  

Effective immediately Baseball BC has extended the suspension of all sanctioned in person baseball activity indefinitely.

Baseball BC sanctioned activities include but are not limited to, all tournaments,

practices, games, coach and umpire education and team building activities. The intent of this

suspension is to limit situations of close physical interactions.

The COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic is rapidly changing the way that we, as global citizens, think, act, gather, learn, and live our daily lives. That includes how we play baseball.

With the most recent announcements from the public heath officials and the government, Baseball B.C. is suspending all sanctioned in person baseball activity indefinitely.

This decision is difficult, but it is our duty to help society follow social distancing protocols (keeping at least 6 feet apart and avoiding congregate settings). It is our hope that by doing this, we will all play a small, but important part in flattening the curve in the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. We will continue to monitor the situation and take our guidance from public health officials, the government, and Baseball Canada.

Baseball B.C. is committed to doing the best we can for the safety and well-being of our players, families, volunteers, and fans.

We will be keeping a close eye on things and will update you as soon as we hear any new information.

If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to contact me.
