2020 Season Update
With the COVID 19 pandemic changing our everyday life currently, the 2020 Ball Season is no different as we wait and see where COVID 19 and social distancing measures go into the summer and beyond.

Currently Baseball Ontario has put on hold all Baseball Activities until May 31st and Softball Ontario has put a hold all activities until May 4th.  The Municipality of Brockton has closed all recreation facilities until June 30th.  If there is going to be any season at all, we are most likely looking at July but there is no guarantee on this either.  


With the season on hold, Baseball Ontario is still offering Umpire Clinics for the 2020 season. If  you are currently an umpire you will need to do the on line clinic to maintain your current level status or if you thought about starting into umpiring you can sign up too. WMB will pay for the clinic for you. If you have any questions about umpiring please email Mike at [email protected].


For those looking to get involved coaching or build on existing portfolios, online courses are also available on the Baseball Ontario website which directs you to an NCCP training webpage. This would be a great time to enroll in coaching clinics as you can do it from the comfort of your home.  WMB will pay for any courses that you complete.  If you have any questions please email Mike at [email protected].


To help support the Families of WMB, The executive has made the decision to return all registration fees back to everyone as soon as possible. If we have a season will figure out what the cost will be at that time.


If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to anyone on WMB Executive.


Thank you and Stay Safe

Mike Klein

President WMB
