All that rain – it changed a lot of plans.

The start of the 2017 Intercounty Baseball League season has had to wait.

What’s wrong with this graphic? The team crest for the Burlington Inter County Baseball League is now known as The Herd. This is the last look at the crest of a team that did come close – but never won the top spot at the end of the season.

The new start of the IBL season is scheduled for Friday, May 12 at 7:35 p.m. when the London Majors host the Burlington Herd at Labatt Park.

Both the Barrie Baycats and Toronto Maple Leafs postponed their home openers scheduled for Sunday, May 7 due to poor weather and field conditions.

Barrie was set to host London, and that game has been rescheduled for Tuesday, June 27 at 7:45 p.m.

The Baycats will now open their home schedule against the Leafs on Saturday, May 13 at 2 p.m.

Toronto was supposed to start the season against the Kitchener Panthers. That game has yet to be rescheduled.


Once they were Bandits – now they are The Herd and they play in a ball park they call the farm. Their opening game got re-scheduled.

The people who manage the baseball schedule are working over the dates and the options they have to work with.

With the postponement, the Leafs will play their home opener Sunday, May 14 against the Brantford Red Sox at 2 p.m.
