Important message from OBA
Submitted By STMBA on Sun 07 27, 14
To all Executive, London & District Baseball Association Reps, Managers, Coaches, Players & Parents of the LDBA and it's Affiliated Associations:

Please be advised that according to Sections P1.12 & P7.1 of the Baseball Ontario Constitution, players registered with Baseball Ontario may not "register" with a non-recognized baseball program during the current baseball year which runs from April 15 until Labour Day annually.
 
For the purposes of this rule, the term "registered" means any player who signs, registers or participates on a regular basis with a non-recognized baseball program without first securing permission from the Baseball Ontario Board of Directors.
 
Any player that participates in any of the above mentioned baseball activities shall be immediately suspended by Baseball Ontario and ineligible to participate in any Baseball Ontario sanctioned events which include, but are not limited to, Elimination Tournaments, OBA Championship Tournaments, PBLO, and Baseball Canada National Championships.
 
Any player who wishes to participate in any tryout, practice, evaluation or other baseball activity with a team that does not currently hold their playing rights must first acquire, in writing, a release from the local association(s) that hold their playing rights AND a release from the Affiliated Association where the player resides (ie: the LDBA).  Once the releases are secured from the local associations, the player must then request permission from the Baseball Ontario Board of Directors to participate.
 
Additionally, according to P1.7 any coach or manager who allows a player to participate in any tryout, practice, evaluation or other baseball activity with a team that does hold their playing rights without the required authorizations shall be subject to suspension by Baseball Ontario as well.
 
For further information, questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
 
Thank you,
Justin Snively
Baseball Ontario Representative
London & District Baseball Association
