Lightning Safety

When Thunder Roars, Go Indoors!

 

If you can hear thunder, you can be hit by lightning. Take shelter immediately. If you cannot find a sturdy, fully enclosed building with wiring and plumbing, get into a metal-roofed vehicle. Stay inside for 30 minutes after the last rumble of thunder.

 

For all regular season house-league games, any games stopped (after the official game time) under the OBA Thunder Policy, would be considered over; and, for other times, the OBA Thunder Policy is to be applied.

 

Direct strikes are responsible for only 50% of lightning-related deaths and injuries. Two other types of hazardous phenomena are caused by lightning. Ground current and side flash account for 60-80% of lightning-related injuries and deaths. A ground current is set up when lightning hits the ground, spreads out and sends a current through a victim. Side splash occurs when lightning hits a tall object, travels partly down the object and then jumps to a nearby victim.



100 years ago a baseball Ontario was born out of a meeting at the Hamilton YMCA on James St. The weekend of Nov 17-19 2017 Baseball Ontario returned to Hamilton to celebrate their 100th anniversary with their AGM at the Hamilton Sheraton Hotel.

 

Hamilton District Baseball Association is pleased to announce that Dennis Ryan, one of our HDBA Past presidents and Life Member, also a Baseball Ontario Past President was honoured at this event by being inducted into the Baseball Ontario hall of Fame. He along with many of the builders of Baseball Ontario we’re honoured in a celebration of the birth and growth of Baseball Ontario at the 100th anniversary AGM on Nov 18th.

 

John Hashimoto, another long time HDBA member was also honoured with an award for his outstanding work in coaches training as a facilitator and clinician. John has worked tirelessly to help the Hamilton Cardinals and Hamilton District Baseball Association build the best possible group of coaches to work with our children.

 


Mike Campanella was recently selected as the 2017 recipient of the Mary Whittaker Memorial Award in honour of his volunteerism at the grass roots level of baseball.

The Hamilton District Baseball Association recogizes Mike as an important builder in our local baseball community. Over the last several decades Mike has been involved with Mahoney Park, the Hamilton Baseball Umpires Association, the Hamilton Cardinals and the Hamilton District Baseball Association. He is an HDBA Past President and Life Member.
