SABU Notice – Baseball activities 2020-2021 (NOTICE: PR – 22 2021)

The SA Baseball Executive wish the baseball family all the very best for 2021 and more
importantly we wish you all very good health.
The SA Baseball Executive Committee met virtually on January 26 2021.Some really difficult
but practical decisions had to be taken in the interest of all baseball stakeholders and to
ensure health and safety.

Please take note of the following important decisions:

COVID 19 Lockdown Level 3
As a result of the Government’s extension of lockdown level 3 to February 15 2021, all baseball activities (national, provincial, district, club and school baseball activities – Phases 1-3) are immediately suspended until further notice. The suspension includes all masters,
seniors and juniors.

National Baseball Championship (NBC 2021)
Our NBC 2020 was postponed as a result of the original COVID 19 pandemic outbreak.
It is unfortunate, but due to the continuous COVID 19 pandemic and the recent lockdown Level
3 extension, almost no baseball activities have taken place this summer.
The NBC 2021 is therefore officially postponed to 2022.

International participation
As a result of the above and many other contributing factors, SA will not participate in any
senior or junior international baseball activities during 2021.

The postponed SABU AGM will now take place virtually on the weekend of May 22-23 2021.
Further details and documentation will be sent in the next 2-3 weeks.
Thank you, stay healthy and stay safe.
