|Location||Cambridge, Ontario, Canda|
|Replaced||Ontario Baseball Amateur Association|
Baseball Ontario, officially known as the Ontario Baseball Association (OBA), is the provincial governing body for baseball in Ontario. The Ontario Baseball Association was founded under the name “Ontario Baseball Amateur Association” which was organized at a meeting held in Hamilton at the Central YMCA on Saturday, May 4, 1918. In 1938, the name was changed to “Ontario Baseball Association”, and in 1982, the organization was incorporated as “Ontario Baseball Association, Inc”. Baseball Ontario currently has its headquarters in Cambridge, Ontario.
In 2013, Baseball Ontario was named Province of the Year by Baseball Canada due, in large part to the 8 medals won by Ontario teams at National Championships. Ontario medaled in all 7 tournaments winning gold at the Bantam Girls, Bantam Boys, Midget, Junior, Senior Women and Senior Mens tournaments in addition to a silver medal at the Baseball Canada Cup and a bronze at the Senior Mens tournament.

- Glasses/Sunglasses are not prohibited, and therefore may be worn by any player, including the pitcher.
- Lightning: Please remember, the baseball season is a prime time for thunder storms, so be aware of lightning and remember the 30–30 Rule.
- 30–30 Rule: Determine the threat of lightning in your area.
- 30 Seconds: Count the seconds between seeing lightning and hearing thunder. If this time is less than 30 seconds, lightning is still a potential threat. Seek shelter immediately.
- 30 minutes: After the last lightning flash, wait 30 minutes before leaving shelter. Half of all lightning deaths occur after the storm passes. Stay in a safe area until you are sure the threat has passed.
- Baseball Ontario recognizes NOCSAE as their standard for Baseball Helmets. NOCSAE states that possible problems can be created from the painting and/or placing of stickers on helmets. Therefore, Baseball Ontario recommends that no modifications to a helmet be made, other than what is done by the manufacturer or is completed at the explicit directions of the manufacturer.
Baseball Ontario Umpires
Baseball Ontario's Umpire Development program is administered under the leadership of the Supervisor of Umpires, Ed Quinlan and The Baseball Ontario Umpires Committee. It is one of the hardest working committees in the OBA, working year-round to improve umpiring across the province. They are always available to answer any questions or comments about the Ontario Baseball Association’s umpiring program.
Umpires in Ontario are certified by Baseball Canada trained Course Conductors and progress through the ranks beginning with Level 1 and working their way to the pinnacle of amateur umpiring in Canada, Level 5 (International Certified).
The following individuals currently form the Baseball Ontario Umpires Committee.
- Ed Quinlan, Supervisor of Umpires
- Trevor Grieve
- Miqdad Jaffer
- Jim McMillan
- Ray Merkley
- Lisa Turbitt
- Chris Wilhelm
The following chart describes the OBA’s umpire certification program, and how one would go about becoming an umpire. First, one must be certified as a Level 1 umpire. At this level, no previous experience is necessary, and to meet the requirements one must simply attend a Level 1 clinic. The chart also demonstrates final examination requirements; the levels of baseball that a Level 1 umpire is certified to umpire; and, the requirements necessary to maintain certification. The evaluation column refers to required live evaluations from highly trained umpires during an actual game.

World Baseball Classic
In 2013, Baseball Ontario Umpire Committee member and former Minor League umpire Trevor Grieve was selected to participate in the World Baseball Classic.
Grieve was given the opportunity to umpire at the WBC Qualifier in Jupiter, Florida in September 2012 where he worked four out of six tournament games including home plate when South Africa took on France in an elimination game and first base when Spain defeated Israel in the championship contest.
The Oshawa, ON native umpired every round of the WBC beginning in Taichung, Taiwan for the first round before travelling to Tokyo, Japan for the second round of competition.
Trevor was very successful in the first two rounds of the tournament and earned a spot in the Championship Round held in San Francisco, CA working third & first base in each of the semi-final games and then finishing off the tournament by working the right field line in the Gold Medal game with three MLB umpires.

First Recorded Baseball Game
1838 Beachville & Zorra Amateur Teams – First Recorded Baseball Game 1988 Induction year into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame
On June 4, 1838, a year before Abner Doubleday was recognized with inventing baseball in Cooperstown, New York, two teams from Oxford and Zorra townships met in Beachville, Ontario in what is now known as the first documented game in North American history. It was Dr. Adam Ford, a former resident of St. Marys, Ontario, now home to the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame, who later reported details of this game in a letter published in the May 5, 1886 issue of Sporting Life magazine.
While living in Denver, Colorado, he wrote of his recollections that the match was played on a square field in a pasture. The game included five bases, fair and foul balls, players using a hand hewn stick as a bat and a ball made of twisted yarn and covered with calf skin. Ford's account was researched by the Beachville District Historical Society and it was concluded that the information in his letter is authentic.
The following are the names of the players on the Beachville and Zorra teams that participated in the historic game:
George BURDICK Harry KARN Almon BURCH Peter KARN Gordon COOK Reuben MARTIN Henry CRUTTENDON Edward McNAMES William DODGE Nathaniel McNAMES Old Ned DOLSON Neil McTAGGART William FORD James PIPER William HARRINGTON Henry TAYLOR William HUTCHINSON I. Van ALSTINE Adam KARN Abel WILLIAMS Daniel KARN John WILLIAMS
