Petition re: Stage 3, Umpires Return to Baseball, Lab Challenge Results!
This week's news...

The INSIDE PITCH - Keeping you informed





The Government announced Stage 3 this week, and has released updated Emergency Orders. For the first time in 2020, we can have full team practices, scrimmages and play baseball games, starting Friday! The challenge however, is a social bubble is being implemented for team sports. The bubble means that a league will be restricted to 50 players, and players cannot compete with players outside their own league.


Baseball Ontario would like to encourage all our members to sign our petition to change the restriction placed on team sport to be limited to leagues of 50 players.



To:Premier Ford and the Government of Ontario

That the Government of Ontario change the Rules for Areas in Stage 3, O. Reg. 364/20, by deleting paragraph 8(1)6 of Schedule 2 or otherwise amending it so that team sports are not limited to leagues of 50 players.


Sign The Petition!


By selecting yes, I agree to add my name and email address to this petition.




Please submit your support by Sunday, July 19th!
