Minor ball players could be practicing by next week


The sounds of ‘Play Ball!’ will be heard soon across Central Lambton as a number of minor baseball leagues announce they’re ready to play again.

Today, the Wyoming Wranglers and Lady Wranglers announced baseball will start June 21. The first three weeks will be practice with teams of 10 which will be randomly drawn from people who have already registered.

Officials expect there will be games in Stage two of the province’s reopening guidelines, likely in early July.

“We understand that this has been a very confusing and sometimes frustrating process for our Wrangler families while we, worked together with everyone’s health and safety being paramount for a season to happen, to say we as a board are ecstatic to see our players back on the field would be an understatement,” says Matt Helps, Wyoming Minor Baseball Association president in a news release. ”

Helps urges players and families to check the minor ball website, http://www.wyomingminorball.ca, for details about how the season will unfold.

In Alvinston, the minor baseball association is taking letters of intent from families so practices can also begin June 20.

And Corunna Minor baseball is also working to get the season underway. In a note to families on the minor ball website, officials say they’re scheduling tryouts for the boys hardball select teams and the groups for the local league age groups.

They plan to reach out to each player soon.
