The spring of 2023 has been less than ideal for anyone looking to get outdoors to enjoy their favourite activity and that includes baseball and softball.

The below normal temperatures and late season snowfall have kept teams from getting much outdoor practicing done.

Erin Maxwell is with Boissevain Minor Ball and she says because of the weather they’ve delayed starting the season. “We were supposed to start league play May 2nd but we’ve backed that up to May 9th.”

“If we get some sunshine and milder weather, we should be able to hit the Lions diamonds the first week of May.

Registration number remain high for ball in Boissevain.

“We look really good on the baseball side of things with three U9 teams, two U11, one U13, one U15 and one U18 as well as a U18 team pretty much based out of Boissevain. We have lower numbers on the girls side. We have three U9, two U11, a U13 and then the U15’s joined with Killarney and the U17’s joined with Deloraine so everyone gets to play,” said Maxwell.

The future looks bright with close to 60 players signed up for the Rally Cap division which introduces players to the sport.
