Glengarry Minor Baseball, which operates a youth league based in Alexandria (on the diamonds at the Glengarry Sports Palace), is hoping to run a spring 2020 season, even one that may be abbreviated.
In a recent announcement, the league’s volunteer board stated that registration remains open for girls and boys with birth years 2005 through 2016.
To assist families at this challenging time, GMB has proposed the following:
- Defer payments (to allow parents to register their children and not worry about financial obligations right now).
- Registration costs have been lowered to reflect the shorter season expected (current cost reductions are between 20%-25%).
- A promise that GMB will not add a second game day during the week. The league is striving to do everything (including possible double-headers) to give kids the best possible season without cutting into valuable family time.
In a “normal” year, Sunday afternoon games would be played over a 12-week season, culminating in early August.
For something fun in the meantime, parents of young baseball stars might enjoy the activities on this post.
