OTTAWA – Baseball Canada is pleased to announce that hosting rights for the 2021 22U Men’s National Championships have been awarded to a joint bid from Dartmouth and Halifax, Nova Scotia.
The event is scheduled to take place from August 5-8, 2021.
Last summer, Baseball Canada’s Board of Directors accepted a proposal from the Championship Committee to move the 21U Men’s National Championship to a 22U event for a three-year (2021-2023) period during which time the following data would be collected:
Number of Provinces participating under the new formula.
Evaluate/track numbers of all 4 ages within this new age system (19-22).
Number of applications to host a 22U Championship.
A further change of significance to the event would see the competition begin on the first Thursday in August to address the issue of the tournament “conflicting with the re-opening of the American College school year”.
