Good day SPMBA families,

Recently, we have understandably been receiving a lot of emails with questions about the upcoming season.  These are very uncertain times for all of us.

We continue to work closely with Baseball Alberta and will be following all recommendations set out by the Chief Medical Officer and Alberta Health Services as we move forward.  As of today, the new direction from Baseball Alberta and Baseball Canada is that all sanctioned baseball events be cancelled until April 30th, 2020.  SPMBA will follow these guidelines and suspend all baseball activities until then.

This has created a lot of questions for us all and particularly to the start of our Community Leagues.  To address this, I have called an emergency meeting of Board of Directors for Monday March 23 via video conferencing to discuss all your concerns and prepare for all possible scenarios going forward.  I will communicate back to you all on Tuesday March 24 with updated information.

Thank you for your patience and understanding at this time as we navigate through this crisis. Our priorities will always be the safety of our athletes and their families.

Let’s all do our part to flatten the curve !

Darren Anderson
SPMBA President
