Why Isn't The Whole Season Schedule Already Posted?

Many people ask why our schedules are posted in segments rather than entire seasons posted much earlier. Unlike soccer, there are no spare baseball fields in Orangeville - while the number of soccer fields has increased dramatically in the past 10 years, the number of ball diamonds has actually been reduced by more than 12 fields in the same time - and of course the population has grown significantly in that same period. Not all our baseball diamonds are necessarily available at the very start of the season, due to winter damage or required field repairs, so we have to issue the early season schedule based on actual (and variable) availability. You will always play on your play nights, and practice times can only vary by 1 hour.
