Dear AKBA Families,
Most importantly we hope that you and your families are healthy and safe.
The purpose of this message today is to maintain contact with our members and update you on information as we learn it.
Our governing body, Baseball Ontario, announced on April 20, 2020, the extension of their mandatory suspension of all baseball activities until May 31, 2020. The AKBA Board continues to work on contingency plans for a shortened HL season and will communicate said plans when we know when we can get back on the diamond. We also continue to be in regular communication with the YSBA with respect to our competitive seasons.
It is unfortunate to see the May portion of our season shut down, but let's hope we can get a portion of the season in at some point this calendar year. More information will follow once we learn more from our governing bodies.
On a side note, the weather will get warmer in the coming weeks and it will be more and more enticing to gather in parks, etc. We continue to ask all of our members to respect the advice of the public health officials and the rules that our municipalities have put in place about gathering in public spaces. Together we can help slow down the spread of this virus and get back to the things we love to do faster.
On behalf of the entire Board of Directors, we wish each of you the best of health and thank you for your continued support and patience as we all try to navigate through these unprecedented times. Let’s hope and pray together that the two words we all long to hear will be shouted soon “Play Ball!”.
Yours in baseball,
The AKBA Board of Directors
