There is no joy in Mudville. COVID-19 has claimed another softball league.

The Vernon Men’s Slo-Pitch League has cancelled its 2020 regular season due to the pandemic.

The league has not yet cancelled a planned 10-to-12 team tournament set for June 13 and 14 that would see teams from the North Okanagan and Kamloops taking part.

The 10-up, six-inning A&W Vernon Mixed Slo-Pitch League canceled its season earlier in March.
