The Powerline Baseball League is committed to the safety of our players and communities. The PBL will be following the Covid-19 guidelines set forth by Baseball Alberta and local municipalities in regards to the 2020 baseball season.

 

**June 19, 2020 Baseball Alberta Update**

We are pleased to release the Baseball Alberta Return to Play Plan. These guidelines represent the limit to which modified gameplay can safely resume within your Association/team in a Covid-19 world. We recognize there will be different levels of comfort from individuals and associations. Baseball Alberta will fully support associations who choose to remain closed for the season or who solely choose to stay with Return to Train activities. Although there will be a level of competitiveness in any game scenarios, those associations who choose to move to the Return to Play model should stress that these games are designed as developmental opportunities, rather than being for the purpose of declaring a winner.

 

Noncompliance can lead to removal of facility access through the municipality in which you offer baseball programming, bylaw fines or even provincial health officer order to cease activity.
