Re: COVID – 19 UPDATES

 

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 urge all member organizations and affiliates to enforce and support the suspension of in person baseball activities in their respective associations as well.

 

Baseball BC and its member organizations pride themselves on providing a safe haven for our youth to enjoy the outdoors and learn the sport of baseball.

 

Baseball BC will review advice from health and senior sport organizations as they are provided and will monitor the situation in hopes that baseball activities will resume as soon as it’s safe to do so.  We will issue further notices when it is appropriate to do so.

Please direct any questions you may have on this topic to Baseball BC Executive Director David Laing at 604-586-3312.
