Chemainus & District Baseball Association players are happy that some of their 2021 season got salvaged amid COVID.
Players actually started getting back on the field to practice in mid-April as per Viasport and Baseball BC guidelines. Various protocols had to be followed, but it was worth it for the players who were enjoying themselves.
The spring season wraps up at the end of June, according to association vice president Jim Jaggers, and then summer ball starts for those who want to play more competitively.
“Chemainus won’t have any summer teams but we will have players on teams in Duncan/Ladysmith in most age groups,” noted Jaggers. “Summer ball will probably include some tournaments and possibly even a couple in Duncan. Spectators are allowed – in a limited capacity – now and it’s really nice to have families watching again. We’ve had a busy June as we have had several teams using our fields for games that don’t include our teams.”
Games to conclude the spring season are taking place on Thursday, June 24 from 6-8 p.m. with three fields going at once and again on Saturday, June 26 from noon to 6 p.m. and Sunday, June 27 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
