BASEBALL ONTARIO RESPONSE TO COVID-19
Submitted By Adam Carricato on Sunday, March 15, 2020
To the Baseball Ontario Community (March 15, 2020),

Baseball  Ontario  considers  safety  a  core  value  of  our  organization,  and  as  such  we  continue  to  monitor  the evolving impact of the novel coronavirus (COVID‐19).

While the situation regarding COVID‐19 is fluid, Baseball Ontario has implemented the following precautionary measures:


In Person Baseball Activities:

Effective  11:59  pm  on  March  15,  2020,  Baseball  Ontario  has  suspended  all  in  person  baseball  activities indefinitely.  This suspension will remain in place at least through April 3, 2020.  Baseball Ontario will advise when it has lifted the suspension.


Level 3 Umpire SuperClinics: 
SuperClinics will be cancelled.  Level 3 umpires will certify via an online exam as they did in 2019.  The Exam will 
be made available March 23rd, and payments already received will be transferred to exam registrations. 

Level 1 & Level 2 Umpire Clinics: 
As of Monday, March 16th, there will be no in‐person Level 1 & 2 clinics for the remainder of this season. We will 
introduce online training so that certification can be achieved for 2020. More details will be shared by April 3rd. 

Coaching Clinics: 
As of Monday, March 16th, there will be no in‐person clinics for the remainder of this season.  We will introduce 
online delivery of coaching clinics so that certification can be achieved for 2020. More details will be shared by 
April 3rd. 

Summer Season: 
At this point in time, plans are still to run with our regular outdoor activities as usual when baseball season begins 
in May.
