Western Canadian Baseball League delays start to 2020 season amid coronavirus pandemic

The Western Canadian Baseball League says it wasn’t an easy decision, but it is delaying the start of the 2020 season.

Its goal, at this point, is to begin sometime in late June or early July depending on the state of the coronavirus pandemic.

“Although the circumstances are not moving quickly enough at present in our favour, we want to look at all options in order to play this year,” WCBL president Kevin Kvame said following a board of governors call on Wednesday night.

“The start of the season as scheduled in late May is impossible to maintain at this point and thus, we regrettably need to make this decision. At the same time, however, we express that with ever-changing dynamics and circumstances on this pandemic and the measures needed to curtail it, we still want to maintain hope that a partial season can be played should health and government positions on the pandemic change enough to make it feasible.
