On March 13, 2020, BCBUA announced that it would suspend all IN PERSON baseball operations until the end of March due to COVID-19, consistent with a similar announcement from Baseball Canada.  Baseball BC has now also served notice that they will be shutting down in person baseball operations indefinitely.  In view of widely publicized developments in British Columbia and Canada, BCBUA baseball operations are suspended indefinitely.  THIS INCLUDES THE NATIONAL CLINIC AND UMPIRE ACADEMY THAT WERE SCHEDULED FOR APRIL.  We will re-evaluate in due course when circumstances warrant.

We regret any inconvenience but confirm that we are primarily concerned with the safety of our members and their families and are doing our best to comply with the advisories of public health authorities.
