In-person baseball activities cancelled as part of Government shutdown
Submitted By Harry Weisdorf on Friday, April 2, 2021
Yesterday, the province of Ontario announced that on Saturday, April 3rd, we are, unfortunately, shutting down in-person baseball activities for 28 days. While that means we won't be able to train in person together, we will stay diligent as we prepare for opening day come May.

Teams are already planning on how to maintain their fitness for their lead-up to the start of the season.  The Ontario-Nepean Canadians have a virtual training session planned in order for their players to keep the same winning habits they generated for much of the off-season (other than our last lockdown).  As we have seen at the major league level, a halt in the preseason build up can negatively affect the amount of game activity a player can take as well as increased the possibility for risk.  As such, teams are looking to maintain as much normalcy as possible while being away from each other. 

Below is the official announcement from Baseball Ontario.  As we get more information, we will continue to update you, the fan.
