2020 Baseball Season Cancelled

June 5, 2020

The Executive of the North Dufferin Baseball League met last evening to discuss the 2020 season in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The difficult decision was made to cancel all competitive competition in the League for the 2020 season which includes both senior and junior division play.

The League has a responsibility to help protect the health of our players, coaches, umpires, spectators and their families.

It is also evident the restrictions and logistics of operating a competitive and meaningful season are no longer favourable to our member clubs. However, the Executive will consider allowing practices and exhibition games using Baseball Ontario guidelines and insurance coverage when it is permitted by Baseball Ontario.

We understand our member clubs and players will be disappointed not playing the sport we love, however, it is the right time to make this decision to allow for our players and families to plan other activities as restrictions begin to be lifted.

We continue to wish all members good health and look forward to playing with our friends and teammates on the diamond next season.


Update to League Membership on 2020 season

April 9, 2020

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt our normal way of life and as it remains in a very fluid state, the League is providing this update to our membership.

The schedule's circulated to our member clubs has a start date of May 2, 2020. It is highly unlikely the League will start play on May 2.

To be clear, League play will not proceed until the OBA reinstates insurance coverage and parks and facilities are open to the public for use by our clubs. We do not know when this will occur but are hopeful to have play underway by June.

The Executive remains in contact to monitor the situation and along with our Statistician will review modified options for both the junior and senior division schedule. Options will not be presented to our clubs until Public Health restrictions are lifted and it is clear the League will resume play.

We appreciate your patience and understanding and continue to wish all members good health.
