Field dedication cancelled; update on sessions tomorrow


The City of Corner Brook has decided to postpone the dedication ceremony that had been scheduled to take place this evening to officially name the Wellington Street Complex in honour of Doug Sweetapple.

The city feels postponing the ceremony is appropriate in light of the advisory issued by the Corner Brook Baseball Association earlier today that its summer session had been put on hold because of an exposure within the organization to a positive case of COVID-19.

The city will announce a new date for the dedication as soon as possible.

The decision to postpone the event and the baseball advisory has also prompted us to cancel today’s minor soccer sessions for the U13/U15 and U5/U7 groups. We will make a decision on Thursday’s sessions tomorrow.

Corner Brook Minor Soccer sends its best wishes to our baseball friends.
