Baseball

Baseball Manitoba and the Carillon league is very optimistic that there will be a baseball season and it is the time to register if you are interested.  The season is planning to start later than other years and most of the programs will have league games scheduled into July.  At this time, please be aware that practices and start of league games will be allowed when health authorities give approval to Baseball Manitoba but we are very optimistic that baseball can be allowed this year.  Also, be aware that GMB will have to follow any provincial guidelines that are put in place in order to play baseball. 

Registration - Deadline Extended to Friday April 16th
(Only for Rally Cap, Grand slam and 11U)

GMB will be having on-line registration only.  Baseball Manitoba requires that each player be registered on-line so this is the logical way to go.

All questions can be directed to Donna – mdreutter@gmail.com

Payments can be either e-transfer sent to – grunthalminorbaseballtreasurer@gmail.com
or by cheque. Make payable to Grunthal Minor Baseball. Mail to GMB Box 1326, Grunthal. No postdated cheques and payment is due soon after you register.

Volunteering & Fees

Along with the fees listed below for each age group, there is a volunteer fee of $50 per family. You can pay this in an etransfer to GMB at time of registration.  If you are paying by cheque you can post-date the cheque to June 28.   It is payable to GCCB (Grunthal Community Centennial Park Board)   This fee is per family so if you have more than one child participating in baseball or softball only one payment is required.  This fee can be refunded if a family chooses to do park-clean up or a parent volunteers to be coaching a team for the season.  

 

Coaching & Umpire Opportunities

We need parents to volunteer to coach.  If we do not have coaches, we cannot offer the program. Coaches do need certification and all courses are on-line.   GMB is willing to pay for any coaching fee that is required to help you become certified.  
Please contact me directly about coaching. 

Anyone interested in becoming certified to be an umpire, please contact Donna for details. GMB is willing to pay for certification.  The umpire clinic is planning to be on-line.  This is for youth born 2008 and older.  Adults can also get certified.  Ball games of U11 and U13 will be games needing umpires and it must be certified umpires.
