Quinte Royals Baseball is set to begin their 2023 season in the Eastern Ontario Baseball Association loop, which extends from Kingston to Pickering. Quinte’s ballparks will be packed on weekends again this summer as Royals teams from 9u to 16u chase the EOBA Championship and  the opportunity to represent at the Ontario Baseball Association Provincial Championships on Labour Day weekend.

Quinte Royals Baseball is proud to host the 14u and the 16u OBA Provincial Championships. Our OBA tournament committee, composed of volunteers from throughout the community, has been hard at work to plan the best tournament experience we can for the players, coaches, and families.

The OBA Championships will be hosted within the Quinte Region on Labour Day weekend. The 14u tournament will be played in Melrose Sports Complex, and Belleville’s Rotary Park. The 16u tournament will be played at Bayshore Field, in Trenton, Rotary Park, Belleville, and Field of Dreams in Wellington. We are ecstatic to bring the best 24 A teams from all over the province to compete for the title of Ontario Champions.

As the baseball season approaches, our committee has been meeting monthly to plan for these tournaments. A big project that we are planning is welcome bags for each of the players and coaches of each team. We hope these welcome bags will highlight all the wonderful business’ and attractions that our entire Quinte region has to offer.

We are looking for sponsors to help make these 2 events memorable for all involved, as well as promoting our area and its various business.Please reach out to quinteroyals@gmail.com to discuss available opportunities.
