Season Update #1
Greetings Fellow BOSL Members,



As you may have already expected, the recent “Emergency Brake” shutdown in Ontario is going to have an affect our ability to get out on to the ball diamonds. How significant an affect? We just don’t know at this time. It was looking very promising that a May 3rd start was a possibility but with the recent variants causing a third, and in some cases fourth wave, we are not as optimistic anymore. I’m not sure that the Ontario Health department is going to allow sports back to scrimmaging and playing after the 4 week shutdown is over but we’ll have to wait and see. Vaccine roll out is picking up the pace so maybe things will look a bit different in the next month. The situation is definitely going to be fluid the next 2 months.

So saying that, the Board of Directors is moving forward as if the season is going to start. When that date is, we don’t know yet, but barring a catastrophe we are going to start the season this year. Even if it’s only 2 months.

So what are we doing in the mean time?

We’re meeting virtually this week with the City along with all of the other Diamond Users. We’re hoping to get some better guidelines on what back to play requirements look like.
We are communicating with the City on the appropriate park booking policies to allow for cancellations based on the regional status of play.
We’re looking to connect with Slo-Pitch Ontario to find out what they are hearing through their meetings with the Ministry of Health.
All of the vacant Captain positions have been filled.
The Membership committee is working diligently on replacement players for those that have withdrawn. The goal is to replace like for like and to keep as much parity as possible.
Target roster number at this point is 13 players just in case we’re held to the 25 player limit on the diamond.
Umpires are being lined up for the season start.
Jerseys are being handed out to Captains to be ready for when we get the Okay.


I feel I need to repeat, we are playing a regular season this year regardless of start date. If the start date moves to sometime in the summer, we will look at extending the year through September. We may not get a 19 week season in like we normally do but we will get a season in. If we lose too many players to field a 16 team league, we will play with whatever we have when we start. The message to everyone is that we have to be ready to pull the trigger as soon as we get the okay to start.

After my previous update I received quite a few questions:

2021 BOSL Season
Greetings BOSL Members,

I hope everyone is doing well and continuing to keep safe. I have heard from a few members that have already received their first vaccinations. This is great news. I’m sure many of you are interested in an update on where we stand for the 2021 season. The City of Burlington finally reached out to all of the sports leagues yesterday to start the conversation about park permits. As everyone might expect,play on the City parks is strictly forbidden without permits.

What do we know so far?

  • The City will only be granting park permits in 2 month increments, so only May & June will be allocated at this time
  • The next block of permits (July & August) will be assessed closer to June and allocation will depend on the conditions at that time
  • Currently Burlington is in the Red/Control health measures which means:

  • We can be completely shutdown if the status moves to Grey
  • COVID protocols similar to last summer will have to be used
  • Game attendance will be limited to 25 players total per game
  • Tournament permits will not be given at this time


What does this mean for BOSL?

  • As of today it looks like we will be starting May 3rd and be playing a regular schedule at our regular diamonds
  • Monday & Wednesdays @ Nelson, Tuesday & Thursdays @ Millcroft, Nelson and Sherwood
  • We have made the request to find another park for Tuesday and Thursday to try and eliminate Monday & Wednesday - we’ll see how that plays out but we’re not expecting a positive outcome
  • We have roughly 27 players who will not be returning from the draft rosters of 2020 but our waitlist has enough players to cover this
  • Our Membership committee will be working diligently over the next couple of weeks to fill vacant positions
  • Unfortunately we’ve had a few captains withdraw so this will be our first priority to fill
  • The Board of Directors will dust off the COVID protocols from last season’s Fall Ball and make some adjustments before we submit them to the City – Just to share with everyone, we had zero COVID cases during play last year

Are you getting antsy?
It is around this time every year where the draft has been completed and we are hard at work putting in the orders for the jerseys, balls, chalk and other items to get ready to play ball.

Covid is making things a bit difficult but while we are carrying over the 2020 teams and jerseys to 2021 we still have some items to take care of. We are still awaiting diamond allocations from the city before we officially announce we are playing.

We will update everyone as soon as we know. Please check out the site while you are here and let Steve Bourke know if you come across any issues or if you have any suggestions.
