Baseball PEI would like to thank all players, coaches, parents and minor baseball associations for a successful 2020 summer season, despite all of the changes and challenges posed by Covid-19!
With the season starting three-five weeks later than usual, the first baseball games took place on 26 June 2020. While there were several changes due to Covid-19 and restrictions and guidelines set forth by the CPHO of Prince Edward Island, each age category played a complete season and completed Provincial Championships. While Provincial Championships were in a different format than usual – most divisions had best-of-three quarterfinals and/or semifinals, with a one-game Final – Prince Edward Island was the only province in Canada that was able to complete Provincial Championships in baseball in 2020.
As well, five minor baseball associations across PEI saw growth in numbers of registered players, and starting on 26 September, seven minor baseball associations across PEI will be participating in Baseball PEI’s new Fall Baseball Pilot program for four-five weeks (with 27 teams taking part in four age categories). Despite challenging circumstances surrounding this season due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Baseball PEI has had a successful season, and that is down to the great work done by its membership!
With the completion with the last Provincial Championship on Sunday, 20 September, Baseball PEI would like to congratulate the following 2020 Provincial Champions and runners-up:
