BASEBALL ATLANTIC – IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

From:               Gerry Leblanc, President, Baseball Atlantic

Date:               July 14th, 2021

RE:                  Status – 2021 Baseball Atlantic Championships

Dear Baseball Atlantic Membership,


At its core, Baseball Atlantic strives to offer the best programming possible at all of its Championships. Our four member provinces – Baseball Newfoundland and Labrador, Baseball Prince Edward Island, Baseball Nova Scotia and Baseball New Brunswick – share in this same goal. It is this commonality that makes Baseball Atlantic a true leader in Atlantic-level amateur sports.

At a recent virtual meeting of the Baseball Atlantic Executive – consisting of the Baseball Atlantic President and four Provincial Presidents with the support of their respective Executive Directors – the topic of the 2021 Baseball Atlantic Championships was discussed in detail. We are all happy that each province will get the chance to play baseball this summer, and to date, all of our provincial baseball associations have successfully implemented proper measures as per public health directives within each province.

With this consideration in mind, it has been decided that the 2021 Baseball Atlantic Championships will proceed this coming season. The timing of this decision also allows our host provinces to best plan and prepare their provincial seasons and select their provincial representatives for our championships.

Baseball Atlantic is looking forward to 2021 when we can once again offer a great Championship season that is reflective of the values and ideals Baseball Atlantic strives to offer its members. It is with that core message in mind that we look forward to seeing you all at the various ballparks throughout your respective province, and Atlantic Canada as a whole.

In closing, continue to stay safe and practice the public health measures and directives within each of your provinces to ensure we are all able to continue to play this wonderful sport safely this summer.

Gerry Leblanc

President
