Out of an abundance of caution, the remainder of the 2020 Border League Baseball season has been canceled due to local surges in the Coronavirus pandemic.
The executive of the Border Baseball League and representatives of each member club reached this unanimous decision after much careful consideration. All involved in this decision believe it is in the best interest of public safety and for the well being of our communities, players, coaches, fans, on-field officials and all other associated game day staff and volunteers. We believe that we have made this decision in a responsible manner by considering all possible outcomes, and then weighing the chance that those potential outcomes might occur. After considering this risk, we believe we have come to the only decision that could responsibly be made.
We regret that we were unable to complete the playoff portion of our 2020 season, but increased Coronavirus infection numbers in various geographies within our league made this decision inevitable. At this time the Altona Bisons, Baldur Regals, Carman Cardinals, Cartwright Twins, Clearwater Baseball Club, Morden Mohawks, Pilot Mound Pilots, Winkler Whips, and the executive of the Border Baseball League would like to thank our communities, our volunteers, officials, corporate sponsors and especially our fans. We believe the 2020 season was a success, regardless of the unplanned end to our season, and look forward to seeing everyone back at the ball park in the spring of 2021.
