It's not another re-brand for Swift Current Minor Baseball and its 57's teams, but category name changes are coming, as announced by Baseball Sask yesterday.
In an effort to align with Baseball Canada and other organizations, Baseball Sask announced it will be removing the 'Midget' name from its 18U category. It becomes just the 18U age group now.
For continuity sake, and in an effort to "go a step further" as said in a tweet yesterday, Baseball Sask is also renaming its Mosquito, Pee Wee, and Bantam divisions to their corresponding age limits.
In Swift Current, the Midget 57's now become the 18U 57's, the Bantam 57's are now the 15U 57's, the Pee Wee 57's will be the 13U 57's, and the Mosquito 57's now are the 11U 57's.
The only categories with names that remain untouched are Senior and Rally Cap.
New Division Names for 2019— Baseball Sask (@BaseballSask) January 29, 2019
At the Baseball Sask January board meeting a motion was brought forward to remove the term Midget from our 18 & under division and replace it with 18U. We went a step further and changed all divisions other than Senior and Rally Cap. 1 of 2 Next ➡️

We have renamed to their respective age category. 11U, 13U, 15U, 18U and 21U. We want baseball to be inclusive and welcoming to all. By doing this we will be aligning ourselves with @baseballcanada and other sports organizations.
