After a season in which the baseball season in Belgium was merely a friendly one than a competitive one, this year’s competition will be serious again with promotion and relegation. The KBBSF (Royal Belgian Baseball and Softball Federation) made an announcement today.
The announcement is as follows:
“A few weeks ago, the KBBSF-FRBBS announced a postponement of the competitions. Since then, we have been following the evolution of the health situation as well as the recommendations of the various sport bodies in Belgium.
Now that outdoor training is possible for all ages in groups of 10 people and that the outdoor plan for this summer is approaching, we are preparing behind the scenes the adapted competition structure for 2021. If in 2020, the competition had been canceled in favor of a friendly competition, we would like to inform you that a competition with a sporting issue will indeed take place in 2021. This means that there will be promotions and relegations in order to rebalance the divisions and allow an even more exciting 2022 season.
Although several scenarios have already been developed, we will not be able to give you more information until after the safety committee of 11/05 which should specify the practical modalities for the resumption of amateur competitions. The KBBSF-FRBBS Board has already scheduled a meeting to validate the proposal that TecCom (Technical Commission) will develop on this basis.
Prepare to return to competition soon, while respecting applicable training protocols.”
