The Kamloops Minor Baseball Association has lots on the go this spring and summer, with the busy schedule set to begin with the annual season-opening parade at Norbrock Stadium.
More than 750 players, coaches and officials will be cheered as they enter the facility at 9 a.m. on Saturday.
KMBA initiatives this season include the Baseball BC Girls Jamboree on June 8, with female national team members coming to town; the Challenger Jamboree (never before held outside the Lower Mainland), which will feature more than 400 athletes with physical and cognitive disabilities, on June 15; the Honda Super Clinic, run by Toronto Blue Jays’ alumni, on July 16 and July 17; and the 11-and-under A provincials, which will run from Aug. 1 to Aug. 5.
The majority of KMBA’s 60 teams will be practising or playing this weekend on McArthur Island.
KMBA will have all-girls’ teams in the 7U, 9U and 11U divisions.
