This past Saturday we were proud to present our 2018 Awards Banquet honouring our best coaches, officials, players, teams, volunteers, and honorary members for their performances and/or contributions to the sport of baseball. We invited all coaches, umpires, league presidents, regional directors, and executive members to nominate those individuals who deserve recognition for their performance over the past year. The 2018 Baseball Manitoba Awards Banquet was a great success, and we thank all of those who came, enjoyed the evening, and celebrated our 50th Anniversary with us.
Spring may seem a long way off! However, throughout dedicated Manitoba players still have their gloves, and bats sitting by their doors, preparing for next year’s season of baseball. These young ladies, who choose baseball, are taking a path, which is challenging and very rewarding.
There are very few “all-girls” baseball teams; other than the three “all-girls” (14U, 16U, and 21U) teams rostered by Manitoba Baseball to participate in the Canadian Invitations Championships (Nationals) and Westerns.
The 2018 Baseball Manitoba Awards Banquet will be held on October 27, 2018 at the Holiday Inn - Airport West in Winnipeg. The formal program will begin at 6:30pm with cocktails at 5:30pm.
Special Guests for the evening include former Canadian MLB stars Corey Koskie and Jason Dickson.
