Springfield Minor Baseball Association excited to announce new team name and logo

In February 2020 the Springfield Minor Baseball Association (SMBA) announced that the name “Braves”, used by the baseball association for decades, would be retired to promote inclusivity within the community. The SMBA Board is now very proud to unveil our new name and logo. Introducing the Springfield Hawks!

“We, as a board, are very excited to conclude the process by unveiling the new name and logo.  We invited community consultation and participation through the use of a survey to choose a name and then provided direction for the logo.  We wanted the logo to incorporate the new name while maintaining the colours of our club.  We are very happy with our new look.” – Mike Peterson, President Springfield Minor Baseball

While COVID-19 significantly impacted the 2020 season, we are very much looking forward to launching the 2021 baseball season. We will be providing updates on the new season shortly and anticipate that player registration will begin in late February. Please keep updated through our website and social media feeds.

On behalf of the SMBA Board,

Mike Peterson
SMBA President

Baseball Manitoba Cancels 2021 Provincial Championships

Published

Tuesday, June 29, 2021

Baseball Manitoba has made the difficult decision to cancel all Provincial Championships in 2021.

The decision was made with the safety and development of our members as the top priority. Provincial Championships create environments with large gatherings with people from across the Province. Also, by cancelling Provincial Championships, we believe that there is more opportunity for a longer season for more players, as they compete late into Summer within their regions.

Baseball Manitoba would like to thank our 2021 Championship Host groups for all the work they have done this year. We will be working with each host, as we plan our 2022 Provincial Championships.

Sincerely,

Jason Miller – Executive Director
