COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update for Baseball in Manitoba

April 3, 2020

Manitoba’s Baseball Community,

As we navigate these unprecedented times, please know that Baseball Manitoba continues to work towards governing a baseball season, in some format, in 2020. All potential start dates, and season lengths are being considered. Staff and volunteers remain hopeful that baseball will be played, and memorable experiences will be made this season. It is too early to tell when this may happen, so we are purposely not giving any target dates or timelines at this time.

Baseball Manitoba has made the difficult decision to cease operations related to online registration through RAMP Interactive and player training programs – including all virtual or online training for players.

As of April 3, 2020, RAMP Interactive online registrations have been closed and the deadline for registration (normally May 15) has been postponed. A new deadline will be provided.

As of April 3, 2020, members will not be covered for accidental claims under our third-party liability insurance program. This is not a permanent decision; insurance will be provided to our members when a baseball season resumes.

Please note that Baseball Manitoba may continue to post (on their website and social media) baseball related drills or activities for baseball players and coaches to use, if they wish. If people choose to do those activities, it will be at their own risk. Also, in conjunction with Baseball Canada, Baseball Manitoba may be operating NCCP (coach) and NOCP (umpire) virtual clinics to prepare coaches and umpires for a season in 2020. More information will be communicated about these programs as they become available.

Baseball Manitoba appreciates all efforts and continued patience from the baseball community.

Stay safe!

Jason Miller – Executive Director
