Rimbey/Bluffton Minor Ball Association has been recognized with the Baseball Association of the Year award.

President Dean Cameron said winning the award was made possible through the efforts of past and present board members, parents and volunteers.

“”It is great they have been recognized for their hard work and dedication to the game of baseball in Alberta,” he said. “We (board members) would like to thank everyone who has helped keep our program running.” The program began nine years ago. “There had been no baseball in the town of Rimbey since 1997,” said Cameron.

The first year the association began, there were only 25 young players registered, but since that time it has continued to expand with up to 140 players participating.

Cameron said board members are grateful to all volunteers who help make the program a success.

“We would like to thank everyone who has helped keep our program running,” he said.
