Fort St. John Slow Pitch update

Ball players all over Fort St. John have been eagerly awaiting word of whether or not there will be a 2020 Fort St. John Mixed Slow Pitch season. The Slow Ptich Society's President Dave Sawyer gave an update today, but unfortunately, there is no word on whether or not a season will take place. 

"As of this second, we are currently waiting on the city to open up the parks for rental usage for the user groups," Sawyer said on the society's Facebook page. All information has been submitted to the city, as well as what teams and what modified rules will be used.

"I know this isn't the exact information we're hoping to hear, and I know that it does sound vague, but again I'd like to thank everyone for their patience. We're doing our absolute best to give clear and accurate information, but with how the Covid crisis has hit us all, it evolves so rapidly that it can be hard to keep up," Sawyer said. 

For now, the slow pitch season will remain up in the air until the executive receives an answer either way. Slow pitch is one of the few team sports that hasn't been officially cancelled for the summer in the Peace Region. While golf courses are open, only some commercial leagues are in order, and all racing leagues in the area are on hold just like slow pitch. 

With little organized sports available, news of a slow pitch season this summer, no matter how short or different, would be rejoiced.
