Fall Ball Reminder: COVID-19 Protocols Must Be Followed


Baseball Ontario is proud of the work done to get back on the field in 2020!


We want to remind everyone that protocols must continue to be followed, specifically with respect to physical distancing.


Its been brought to our attention through social media that teams are holding opening/closing ceremonies, not physically distancing, and celebrating with high fives, fist bumps, etc. Under our Return to Sport Protocols this is not allowed. Please continue to be diligent with your adherence to the protocols.








Today is the last day to submit Rep Division Rule Changes!


The Select Council would like to hear from teams & locals about suggested rule changes for the Select Division for 2021.


Please send any suggestions or comments by December 1st!
