2020 Season Cancelled
Submitted By Mike Klein on Sunday, June 7, 2020
With all that is going on with Covid 19 pandemic, social  distancing  and that groups must be limited to 5 people or less,  Walkerton Minor Ball has decided to cancel the 2020 Ball Season.  



As we are now into June and there are many regulations to follow as set out by government and the Walkerton Ball Diamonds are closed until at least June 30th. Should some of these restrictions be lifted, this is leaving us a very short season to work with.  In addition Baseball Ontario has set up "Return to Play" guidelines if we get the go ahead to start the season, with following baseball Ontario's restrictions they have set up,  there will not be enough time to prepare, and there are too many guidelines set out to follow and conduct a ball season.

 

If later in the summer we feel it is safe to do so and we can obtain insurance, we will look at setting up some training days to get the kids out and learn some ball skills.

 

This was not an easy decision but we feel at this time it is the right thing to do for the health and safety of players, coaches, umpires and families.

 

Thank you for your understanding, and look forward to seeing you back in 2021.

 

Walkerton Minor Ball Executive
