16U AAA Baseball Ontario Provincials – Day 2 Results and Sunday Outlook

Day 2 is in the books at the 2019 Baseball Ontario 16U Provincial Championship and just four teams remain heading into Sunday. Play will continue with two games at 9am:

Game 20 9:00am Bernie Arbour
Mississauga North (0 L) North Toronto (1 L)
Barrie (1 L) Etobicoke (1 L)
Game 21 9:00am Mohawk 2

Following the conclusion of play in the 9am games, one of two scenarios will remain:

Should Mississauga North be victorious against North Toronto, they would face the winner of the Barrie/Etobicoke contest at noon, at Bernie Arbour Stadium. A victory by Mississauga would clinch the title, while they would have to be defeated twice (due to their undefeated standing) in order to have the pennant cluched from their grasp.

Should North Toronto defeat Mississauga in the morning game, three teams would remain, all with one loss. A draw for a bye would occur among the remaining three teams, with the team winning the draw advancing directly to a single-elimination game for the provincial championship at 3pm at Bernie Arbour, while the other two teams would face off at noon. However, should Etobicoke defeat Barrie in their game, by virtue of the Rangers’ Round 3 bye on Saturday, they would be ineligble to participate in the draw.

In any case, Sunday is shaping up to be a fantastic day of amateur baseball in the Steel City!

HBUA, HDBA Announce Supplemental Umpire Training Dates

In association with the Hamilton District Baseball Association (HDBA), the HBUA is proud to announce the creation of three supplemental umpire training dates over the off-season.

The date, time, and location of the programs are as follows:
Saturday March 16: 1pm-3pm, Calvin Christian School
Saturday March 30: 4pm-6pm, Calvin Christian School
Tuesday April 2: 6:30pm-8:30pm, St Eugene Catholic School

These clinics are FREE to all HDBA/HBUA umpires. These sessions are not intended as a replacement for attending a Baseball Ontario Umpire Clinic, but rather basic training to help build confidence in our newer umpires and shake off the rust for veterans.

Participants MUST register in advance for these programs – click here to do so. Walk-up registrations will NOT be permitted.

In order to reach out to as many umpires as possible we ask that you register for only one of these sessions.

Lastly, newly hired Minor League umpire Matt Blackborow, product of the HDBA/HBUA system, will be in attendance at all three sessions. Eastern League (AA) umpire Chris Marco will also be attending the April 2 session as an instructor.

HBUA / HDBA Announce 2019 Level 1, Level 2 Clinic Dates

In association with Baseball Ontario, the Hamilton Baseball Umpires’ Association, along with the Hamilton District Baseball Association, are pleased to announce the date and location for the Hamilton Level 1 and Level 2 umpire certification courses.

This program will be held Saturday April 13 at Bishop Tonnos Catholic Secondary School. The courses will run concurrently, from 9am until 4pm. Registration will begin at 8:30am.

As a reminder, students must register in advance through their Baseball Ontario umpire profile. Please note that unfortunately, walk-up registrations will not be accepted. Space is limited, so be sure to sign-up today.

Furthermore, to any Hamilton umpire who completed the Canadian Baseball Umpire Camps (CBUC) course earlier this month in Oakville – you are NOT required to attend this clinic.
