Baseball Manitoba’s Competition Committee, during their annual Fall Meeting, created the idea of a Province Wide AAA League, based on letters submitted by Mike Anderson (WABA) and Louis Cote (Carillon). After a brief discussion, Alex Grenier created a sub-committee, which met to finalize the details.
The purpose of the League would be to; provide more competitive play for AAA players across the province, more variety for existing WABA teams, minimize requests for transfers, reduce scheduling issues within WABA, support WABA with their current efforts to provide meaningful games for Zone 2 AAA Teams.
The sub-committee meeting resulted in the following plan: Beginning in 2022, Baseball Manitoba (with administrative assistance from WABA) will Pilot a Province Wide AAA League at the 13U, 15U and 18U age divisions. The intent of this plan beyond the pilot season involves full time inclusion from all regions at all age categories, making this a true Province wide League. Participation in the pilot season is voluntary and will not affect team’s inclusion in the 2022 Provincial Qualifier Tournaments.
Baseball Manitoba believes that this approach will result in a vast improvement of our players, coaches, and umpires at the highest level, resulting in better development and competition.
