Like every sports league, the Intercounty Baseball League is in a holding pattern.
In a release Wednesday, the league said it is resigned to the fact that a traditional IBL season is not possible this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Ball parks are expected to be off limits in several of the cities where teams are until at least Canada Day, but the league is hopeful a modified season is still possible.
Some clubs, including the Kitchener Panthers, have even said even if there is a shortened season, they won't be able to field a team.
"At this point, The IBL can say in confidence that we will not have baseball of any kind before July 1; that the majority of teams, while realizing IBL baseball this summer may seem unlikely, are hopeful of playing a modified season; and that some teams have already resigned themselves that they will not operate in 2020." stated the release.
In a typical year, the IBL regular season would start in early May.
We are expecting to hear more from the Panthers on Thursday.
