Play ball!


Chatham-Kent is ready to play ball with the Chatham Minor Baseball Association for another decade.

Council voted to enter into an agreement with the association for a 10-year lease. It will allow the CMBA to use the canteen and washrooms, the CMBA storage shed and the indoor training facility on Tweedsmuir Avenue in Chatham.

According to a report from administration, there’s the possibility of building another 2,000 sq.-ft. structure that would house changing facilities, showers and a coach’s room for the use of CMBA, guest teams and potentially the new Intercounty Baseball League Chatham-Kent Barnstormers team.

The association will maintain the scoreboard advertising rights, but the equipment is owned by the municipality.
