PBLO Coronavirus/COVID-19 UPDATE
April 2, 2020

The Premier Baseball League of Ontario (PBLO) is and has been monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic along with working with our teams and Baseball Ontario. Baseball Ontario released the following statement on April 1st, 2020.

Based on the recommendations of our provincial government health officials, Baseball Ontario will be extending the suspension of all in-person programs and activities until May 1, 2020. We will review this new timeline at the end of April.

Therefore, the PBLO will suspend all baseball activities until the end of April at which time the PBLO Clubs and the executive will determine their next steps in conjunction with Health Canada, Health Ontario and OBA Baseball. The PBLO is hopeful that we will be able to salvage some of the spring season and teams have committed to work with a revised schedule if the restrictions are lifted.

The executive committee and clubs will meet regularly by teleconference call and continues to plan and prepare so that we are ready to go when the opportunity presents itself.

Please follow the PBLO website for further updates and for more information on COVID-19 please visit the Health Canada site: https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health/services/diseases/coronavirus-disease-covid-19.html

Thank-you for your understanding and co-operation

Yours Sincerely
Don Campbell
President PBLO
