Upon the updated requirements of the Victorian and Federal Governments, Baseball Victoria confirms that the current complete shutdown of all baseball activity in Victoria will now be extended to Tuesday, 14 April 2020.
All forms of baseball training, club activities and team meetings, as well as events, tournaments and competitions should have ceased last week, and at this stage the shutdown will remain in place until 14 April 2020.
The Victorian Government, along with any additional Federal Government restrictions put in place, will be making further statements tomorrow Monday, 23 March 2020, at which time Baseball Victoria will also provide additional information.
Baseball Victoria continues to work with the Winter Associations regarding the upcoming winter season, scheduled to commence on 18 April 2020. Contingencies will be considered, taking into account the fast-paced ongoing nature of further restrictions, long-term restrictions that have already been foreshadowed and suitable timelines for training before the commencement of the season.
Non-essential travel restrictions look certain to affect the National Little League events scheduled in the coming months and Baseball Victoria is working with Baseball Australia and our state and territory colleagues.
Updated 23 March 2020 - HERE is the information provided by Baseball Australia postponing all National Little League events.
We urge the baseball community to adhere to the restrictions in place and review all health information available. You can find information on how to keep yourself and your family safe and healthy HERE from the Victoria Department of Health.
