Congratulations to East Mountain Baseball's Kyle Burley on receiving the youth volunteer award at the 2016 Sport Volunteers dinner and awards banquet on Sept 22nd
Thanks to all our HDBA ball players for a great 2016 baseball season.
Thanks to the Blue Jays 2015 season, interest in baseball was up across the city this year seeing our numbers go from 75 house league teams last season up to 90 this year. Due to this growth HDBA interlock played over 730 regular season games and 229 tournament games. I hope everyone had a great time playing the best sport there is, I expect to see you all back on the field in the spring.
Check back here for updates on next years registration details and info on the 2017 umpire clinics as they become available.
Keep your fingers crossed for a big Blue Jays post season run!
Lightning, please remember that the baseball season is a prime time for thunder storms, so be aware of lightning. If you hear Thunder and/or see Lightning, immediately cease play and seek suitable shelter. Wait 30 minutes after the last sound of thunder or flash of lightning before leaving shelter. Half of all lightning deaths occur after the storm passes. Stay in a safe area until you are sure the threat has passed. If there is no suitable safe shelter available, games are to be considered cancelled. Alexander Park, Bernie Arbour Stadium, Dofasco Park, Mahoney Park, and Volunteer Field are the only parks considered to have suitable safe shelter so long as the facilities are open, available and provide adequate space for all participants for use.
Congratulations to the 2016 Mid Summer Classic Champions
