ABL makes decision to cancel upcoming season

The Australian Baseball League has made the shock decision to cancel its upcoming season.


After making the decision the league cited the continued uncertainty around Australia's COVID situation was the major contributing factor.


Baseball Australia CEO Glenn Williams believe the current border restrictions meant the ABL could not operate a successful season.


“There is still too much uncertainty around Australia’s ongoing COVID restrictions for us to be able to operate a successful ABL season,” Williams said.


“We know how much the ABL means to our fans, players, coaches, officials and the wider baseball community and we exhausted all options to try and find a way to conduct a sustainable season, but we couldn’t find a way through.


“This is understandably disappointing, but we are confident this is the right decision and in the best long-term interests of the ABL and its teams.”
