so, baseball coming back again? (All things Fat Cats)

In the form of the Intercounty Baseball League?

Might be old news, but just coming across it now.

Baseball is expected to return to the Ottawa Stadium this year, after a group proposing to use the facility met the city's requirements and signed a one-year lease.

The Ottawa Stadium Group (OSG) has been proposing to bring an Intercounty Baseball League team to the stadium, which could also host Can-Am League games, women's semi-professional games and community events.

"OSG has come to the table and said that they will provide an exciting brand of baseball," said Orléans Councillor Bob Monette, a strong advocate of bringing baseball back to the Coventry Road stadium, where the Ottawa Lynx Triple-A and Ottawa Rapidz independent baseball teams used to play.

Too bad I started enjoying baseball again basically the exact second AAA baseball left the city. Enjoyed going to the Rapidz games as well when they were around for their short stay. I'm sure I'll check this out, but the level of league seems to get worse every time Ottawa gets a team.

IBL website hasn't really been updated in some time. Looks like their 2009 season began in May. Teams are all in Ontario - Barrie, Brantford, Guelph, Hamilton, Kitchener, London, Mississauga, Oshawa and Toronto.
