BASEBALL. The leadership of the Quebec Major Baseball League (LBMQ) has no choice but to follow the new directives from the Quebec government while Mauritius and Center-du-Quebec have moved to level 3 (orange zone) and announce that the fourth match in the final between Cascades and Cactus de Victoriaville will be the last in front of spectators tonight in Shawinigan.
The new sanitary measures will be in place from Thursday 1.is October, which is why LBMQ allows one last match in front of the audience tonight. From tomorrow, the maximum number of people allowed at events will be reduced to 25.
In this context, the two organizations have made the decision to no longer receive spectators and keep the rest of their matches behind closed doors. “This situation is, of course, beyond our control, but is the only way to be able to complete the series,” LBMQ argued in a press release. We are aware of the enthusiasm for this series, and it is with sadness that we ask fans to avoid showing up near the stadiums. If you want to continue wanting to participate in the matches, you only risk ending the series. “
LOW PRICE WEB BROADCAST
As has been the case since the start of the final series, sections 5, 6 (if necessary) and 7 (if necessary) will be broadcast and described via webcast. However, the application of these new sanitary measures will entail significant financial losses for the two organizations involved. For this reason, and to limit these losses, LBMQ is considering paying for this webcast.
To gauge interest in a paid webcast, LBMQ asks fans to respond quickly short survey on the subject.
Cascades de Shawinigan, Cactus de Victoriaville and Quebec Major League Baseball organizations would like to express their immense regret over the situation and thank baseball fans in the province for their understanding and support.
