OTTAWA – Baseball Canada is accepting bids to host the 2010 National Championships until December 15th, 2009.
Only three championships have hosts selected thus far; Bantam Boys Championship in Vaughan, Ontario; Senior Men’s Championship in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia and the Canada Cup in Kindersley, Saskatchewan.
One major hurdle for the host committees was the accommodation costs. But at the recent Baseball Canada Convention in St. John’s, Newfoundland, the Baseball Canada Board of Directors passed a motion to charge the participating teams $1,000 per scheduled day of competition for accommodations, thus alleviating some of the costs on the hosts.
The remaining championships in need of hosts are the Midget Championship, Junior Championship and Bantam Girls Championship.
