COVID-19 Baseball Manitoba Update:
The health and safety of people in sport, including players, coaches, umpires, spectators, volunteers, and the public, continues to be of the utmost importance to Baseball Manitoba.
We would like to clarify the Province of Manitoba's most recent announcement, the Restoring Safe Services Phase 2 DRAFT plan - https://www.gov.mb.ca/covid19/restoring/index.html. Phase 2 does include the Sport of Baseball, which is new information. But, Phase 2 has not yet started and there is currently no defined start date.
Baseball Manitoba has submitted a Return to Play document to Sport Manitoba and the Province and is awaiting a response. This plan includes a phased approach, which includes building toward competition. Details on that plan will be released to associations, so they may start planning for a baseball season.
Baseball Manitoba sanctioned activities continue to be suspended, until at least June 5, 2020. We are working with our registration system and insurance Providers to ensure smooth and timely transitions.
We will continue to update our membership and the public as new information is received.

Published on May 21, 2020To all Softball Manitoba Members,
While the Manitoba government is gradually increasing the number allowed at social gatherings and opening up on resuming sports activities for children and adults by lifting occupancy limits at outdoor recreation facilities, Softball Manitoba continues to prepare and commit to a June 1st start (as long as physical distancing and proper health precautions can be maintained), Our Return To Play Guidelines are currently under review by Sport Manitoba and the Manitoba Government and until approved Softball Manitoba will continue to lock down their Development and Competition programming.
Softball Manitoba will continue to work with Sport Manitoba and the Province of Manitoba to meet the health and safety requirements necessary to be prepared in the event that we are allowed to return to play. As per out last notice (April 30) - the plan currently anticipates that organized softball will be permitted to start no earlier than June 1, 2020. Please note that Softball Manitoba accident insurance coverage for athletes, coaches and officials will NOT be activated until June 1, 2020.
Educating Leagues on our Return To Play guidelines and forwarding further information on proper safety precautions for play and physical distancing will be our immediate priority.
