2021 BASEBALL SEASON UPDATE & KEY DATES
The 2021 baseball season will start with a few weeks of practice. We look forward to welcoming back many players who chose not to participate in 2020 and we expect that everyone will need a little time to get “back in the swing”. Beginning mid-late April, we hope to incorporate games with limited spectators and some adjustments to be COVID-safe.
Everything we do is in accordance with the PHO, Baseball BC, Little League Canada and ViaSport while adhering to our approved COVID-19 Return to Play Plan. At this time there is some uncertainty about the exact path this season will follow and some things are yet to be determined: interlock games between leagues, post-season play including all-star teams and district and provincial championships. We will update our community when we know more based on changes from the PHO. Playing baseball is generally a socially distant exercise and we fully anticipate to play games within our own Hastings league. Most importantly, we look forward to getting our kids outside and rebuilding friendships apart from online video games!
Highlighted below is our Calendar of Events as it currently stands (subject to change):
Ongoing - Registration is currently OPEN and Virtual Evaluations are being accepted now (Rookie & Minor)

If you are unable to participate in the virtual evaluation, don’t worry we will still be able to place your child on a team. Similar to last season, the end of the season may be dependent on PHO guidelines but we will evaluate and are open to extending the season to get in more games in nice weather.
Refund / Cancellation:
In the unlikely event of a complete cancellation or dramatic alteration of the season, all registration fees will be refunded 100%. For all other registration withdrawals, our regular refund policy will apply.
