ICBA and GMBA Mourn the Passing of Cheryl Mocuik
ICBA is sad to announce the passing of long time Guelph MBA volunteer Cheryl Mocuik earlier this week. Cheryl was a long time volunteer for GMBA and her efforts were recognized in 2014 as she was awarded the ICBA volunteer of the year.
Visitation will take place at Wall Custance Funeral Home Guelph, 7 - 9 on Friday night and then 10 - 11 on Saturday morning with the service to follow.
Concussion Awareness Month- Click for info 2016
The start of baseball is just around the corner and as we prepare our teams and players for the field it is also time to educate coaches and parents about player concussions. We have all read the articles on this area of concern in all sports and though some might feel that our sport is less likely to experience this type of injury it does happen and we need to be prepared for it. The two articles listed below will give coaches/trainers and parents alike a good way to determine if a player has incurred a concussion. Please take time to read the articles below for the protection of our players on the field.

The 2016 schedules are now posted. Please note that game changes must have the approval of both teams and the division convener before they will be approved and changed on the schedule. The Midget T2 schedule was revised on April 26, 2016. Please discard the old schedule and refer to the on-line version.
