Return to Sport- Addressing Player Bubbles
Submitted By Admin on Sat 04 10, 21
In Baseball Ontario's latest newsletter, they stated some concerns with the Return to Sport Player Bubbles.  Baseball Ontario understands the current state of the province, but they continue to be optimistic that we can have a meaningful season in 2021. However, even in the current rules for Green Zones in the government of Ontario's reopening plan, outdoor team sports are restricted to bubbles of 50 players, as we were in 2020.

Many concerned coaches, parents and volunteers have reached out asking what Baseball Ontario is doing to petition the government for change.

We have been advised by the provincial government that restrictions will only be modified or lifted with the support of Ontario's Chief Medical Officer. Baseball Ontario has reached out to the CMO as well as our Minister's office to make our case for change. We have also supported the efforts of other outdoor team sports like soccer and softball who have made similar recommendations for change.

We have seen that by coming together as a community and reaching out to our local MPP's respectfully and thoughtfully, changes to the regulations can be achieved, as demonstrated for religious ceremonies, personal care services and outdoor patios.

What can you do to help?
Now it's our turn! We are asking everyone who believes that a return to baseball (a safe, socially distanced outdoor sport) is essential write to their local MPP asking them to support the changes to the clauses pertaining to limits of 50 players. We have created a template you can use.  Download Template
