2020 Season CANCELLED
Submitted By Rob Cascaden on Sun 06 07, 20
After much discussion and consideration by the members of the Executive, Lucan-Ilderton Minor Baseball has decided to officially cancel the 2020 softball/baseball season for all of our teams.  The decision was made after weighing several factors including cancellation by other associations, draft return to play protocols and the additional burden which would be placed on all coaches. Cancelling the season was not an easy decision to come by, certainly not the outcome we have all been hoping for, however in consideration of the health & safety of our players, coaches, umpires & volunteers, it was the best decision to make.  We thank our players and families for their patience.


Families will receive a full refund of registration fees; a refund will automatically be returned to the card of payment (if you had arranged for an alternate method of payment we will arrange for an e-transfer).  We appreciate your patience with this process.    Individual teams that collected money from families must also begin refunding the unused portion of the funds with a deadline of July 1st.  

At this time, this means that all teams are disbanded for the 2020 season, but we are keeping open the option to run something for our players at the association level later in the summer if the conditions are favourable.  If this becomes a real possibility later in the summer, we will go through a new registration process with a new payment structure.  We will continue to monitor the current COVID-19 situation and announcements pertaining to play. 

Below is a link to Baseball Ontario’s draft “Return to Play Protocols” for anyone interested.

We wish you all the best and hope to see everyone back on the diamonds soon.
Thank you,

Lucan-Ilderton Minor Baseball Executive
