The Seaway Surge Baseball Club officials say they are ready to deliver the baseball season once they are given the go-ahead from Baseball Ontario, and the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit.
Director of Communications Chris Warren says they expect to resume activities in mid-June, once the province enters Step 1 of its Roadmap to Reopen.
“We know that we’re going to be able to get our kids on the field likely with some practices to start, and hopefully by July some game action, and then we can allow our kids to enjoy baseball seasons like they previously have,” Warren said.
Aside from operating the rep leagues, the club is also taking on house league and girls’ softball programs for the summer.
Players can still register, and volunteers are needed to help coach the house league and softball teams.
Meanwhile, the club is also set to host this year’s Bantam ‘AA’ Championships throughout the region.
Warren says they are feeling optimistic that the tournament will go ahead as planned.
“We don’t have an answer one-way or another just yet.” Warren said. “But at this point, no news is good news so it hasn’t been cancelled. We’ll keep our fingers crossed and just hope that we’ll be able to host in some capacity.”
The Championships are scheduled for the Labour Day weekend.
