UFV baseball spring season cancelled

CCBC spring season will not occur in 2020, fall season a possibility

The University of the Fraser Valley Cascades baseball team will have to wait to defend its 2019 Canadian Collegiate Baseball League title, as the Canadian College Baseball Conference recently announced the spring season has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

A plan to hold the 2020 regular season and championship in the fall is being discussed among CCBC league executives, along with ensuring all players are eligible. More information will be made public once a full plan is in place.

“The CCBC holds the health and safety of all players, staff, fans, and community as a top priority, therefore this is a decision that must be made in this difficult time,” the CCBC stated in a press release.

The Cascades were scheduled to open the 2020 season March 28-29 vs. Thompson Rivers, with doubleheaders in Kamloops on March 28, and at Abbotsford’s DeLair Park on March 29.

UFV was coming off a memorable 2019 season that saw the team win the championship by defeating the Okanagan College Coyotes 2-1 in a best-of-three series back in May.
