Baseball Gold season in Belgium likely postponed

Schermafbeelding 2020-07-04 om 11.36.02

Earlier today you could read here that baseball games in Flanders (Belgium) have to be played without an audience. But it has gotten worse.

Since the Province of Antwerp is a hotspot of the resurgence of the coronavirus, the governor of the province has announced several extra steps to contain the virus. Next to a curfew, team sports will be forbidden, except for players younger than eighteen.

As five of the six teams in the Baseball Gold League are from the Province of Antwerp, it is not hard to imagine that the competition that only started early July, will be postponed for at least four weeks. With a bit of luck, the competition can continue at the end of August but in a worst-case scenario, the 2020 season might be over.

For now, the KBBSF (Royal Belgian Baseball and Softball Federation) and the VBSL (Flemish Baseball and Softball League) did not release a statement yet but it is expected they will release one in the coming days.
