May 10, 2020 UPDATE - 2020 CMBA AAA/AA COMPETITIVE LEAGUE SEASON CANCELLED:
Good evening CMBA families, for those of you that may have not yet heard, on May 8, 2020 Baseball Alberta’s Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel ALL in-person Baseball Alberta sanctioned events and activities until September 1, 2020 due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. This means that in addition to the cancellation of Community/House Seasons, all AAA and AA Seasons are now cancelled. We understand this will be disappointing news, but with the current Provincial health restrictions in place, it's become abundantly clear that there remain several hurdles to overcome before our players would be able to take the field.
CMBA fully supports the decision made by Baseball Alberta and agree that with the current state of the pandemic, full cancellations of the season was the prudent thing to do. Baseball Alberta is currently developing return-to-train protocols to allow for the resumption of in-person baseball activities once it is deemed safe to do so and in accordance with the recommendations by the Alberta Chief Medical Officer. Until that time, we will continue to refrain from all baseball activities.
CMBA will continue to monitor the current situation and if conditions improve to the point where we can safely provide some sort of development programs for our athletes we will try to do so.
An email will be sent out shortly outlining the steps we will be taking for the refund process. Please keep a look out for this.
We understand that many of you may have questions and there will be disappointment to lose out on an entire summer of baseball. These are incredibly challenging times but CMBA will always ensure that first and foremost the health and safety of our athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers and fans will be our focus.
Lastly, I would like to invite anyone to reach out to me directly if you have any questions or concerns and I will do my best to respond in an expedited manner.
