Important Bulletin from Baseball Ontario
Submitted By Hamilton Cardinals on Thursday, April 1, 2021
On April 1, 2021, Halton Regional Police Services issued a media release advising that they had charged John Douglas Hashimoto with luring a child under 16 years of age and invitation to sexual touching.


Mr. Hashimoto is a retired teacher with the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board
and has been actively involved in youth baseball in the City of Hamilton. He has been a
Lead Baseball Instructor for the Toronto Blue Jays Baseball Academy and a Master Coach
Developer and Evaluator for Baseball Canada. We understand that Baseball Canada has
suspended Mr. Hashimoto.

Baseball Ontario strives to provide the safest possible environment for all our
participants. We encourage all our member associations to do whatever is required in
their circumstances to eliminate and protect against all forms of harassment. We
certainly do not condone the actions which Mr. Hashimoto is alleged to have taken.

In light of the allegations, Baseball Ontario, have taken the step of declaring that Mr.Hashimoto is suspended from all Baseball Ontario involvements and is ineligible to participate as a coach, volunteer, or executive with any Baseball Ontario organization for an indefinite period of time.

The Board of Management will monitor developments in this situation and may revisit its
decision as further information becomes available.

The Hamilton Cardinals Rep Baseball Association support the actions taken by Baseball Ontario and will support the ongoing investigation by the Halton Regional Police.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact Detective Todd Martin at 905-825-4747 Ext. 8983 or D/Cst. Andrew Hulbert at 905-825-4747 Ext. 8974 of the Halton Regional Police Service Internet Child Exploitation Unit (ICE).

Tips can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers "See Something? Hear Something? Know Something?" Contact "Crime Stoppers" at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or through the web at www.haltoncrimestoppers.ca
