Wednesday's Opening Day postponed in Toronto
After a nearly two-year hiatus thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Intercounty Baseball League will have to wait a little longer to resume play for the first time since September 2019.
Wednesday's season opener between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Hamilton Cardinals was postponed due to inclimate weather in Toronto and the area surrounding Christie Pits. A make-up date will be announced.
The Intercounty Baseball League (IBL) is the top-level baseball league in Canada, boasting ex-major league professional and elite NCAA college baseball players. The 2021 season will mark the IBL’s 102nd in operation. The IBL is one of the longest
continuously operated baseball leagues in the world and serves as a valuable training ground for coaches, umpires, and front office staff. More than 40 IBL players have advanced to Major League Baseball or returned to the IBL following their MLB careers. The league is comprised of teams from Barrie, Brantford, Kitchener, London, Toronto, Guelph, Welland, and Hamilton. For more information, visit www.theibl.ca.
