Please see the attached letter from the KMBA executive regarding the 2020 baseball season.

Letter  to KMBA Registrants, 21APR2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly changed everyone’s lives. As such, the KMBA Executive wanted to send all registrants for the 2020 season a communication to answer some of the questions you may have.

While the COVID-19 situation remains fluid, Baseball Ontario is continuing to monitor the situation. Based on the guidelines of the provincial government and public health authorities, the suspension of all in-person baseball programs and activities has been extended until May 31, 2020.

The Municipality of Kincardine has cancelled all public facility use through to June 30, 2020, which of course means that the diamonds are restricted until July. If there is word that Baseball Ontario commences the season at the beginning of June, we will ensure this is communicated to the Municipality at that time.

Even though there is no play on the field, Baseball Ontario’s various committees have been continuing work behind the scenes to facilitate umpire and coaching programs online.

The executive committee is continuing to communicate regularly by teleconference and email on the planning and preparations required for baseball to begin when the opportunity presents itself. When more definite plans present themselves, we will ensure everyone in the Association is updated.

As developments occur, Baseball Ontario and WOBA will update their associated websites and social media platforms, and we will review this timeline at the end of May.

If you have not already done so, please check out the Get Up and Play Initiative on our KMBA website that we have developed collectively with the Kincardine Cubs.

If you are a prospective umpire, you need to register on the Baseball Ontario website for the Kincardine ump clinic scheduled for May 31, 2020. Once registered for the Kincardine clinic, you are able to complete the clinic on-line this year. KMBA covers the cost for local umpires.

For those looking to get involved coaching or build on existing portfolios, online courses are also available on the Baseball Ontario website which directs you to an NCCP training webpage. Alike umpires, KMBA also covers the cost of all coaching clinics for local coaches.

The hope is that we can salvage our 2020 baseball season. In the meantime, please practice the safety measures set forth by our provincial medical professionals.

The sooner we can flatten the curve, the sooner we can throw them from the mound.

Please reach out to any KMBA Executive members with any questions or concerns.

Stay Healthy and Safe.

Ryan Fraser

KMBA President
