Barrie Minor Baseball is pleased to announce that in 2018, we will re-brand our teams' identity to the Barrie Baycats, beginning a new era of partnership between the Barrie Minor Baseball Association and the city's semi-pro Intercounty Baseball League (IBL) team, The Barrie Baycats Baseball Club.
This change is supported by an overwhelming majority of our members, based on recent survey results.
The Baycats organization is interested in working more closely with us and taking a more active role in promoting youth baseball in the City of Barrie. We want to give our teams a more unique and meaningful identity with a solid connection to Barrie and the community, so taking on the Baycats name seemed like a logical choice.
Both organizations have mutual goals to support each other, get more baseball fans involved in the community and provide increased development opportunities.
Players can continue to use current apparel and equipment until such time as they need to be replaced. Uniforms, which are provided every year, are being re-designed with details to be announced shortly.
