SASKATOON TO JOIN WCBL IN 2024!
Regina Red Sox Baseball Club of the Western Canadian Baseball League (“WCBL”), Canada’s premier
summer collegiate league, is pleased to announce that the Saskatoon Entertainment Group (“SEG”) willbe bringing WCBL baseball back to Saskatoon starting in the summer of 2024.
SEG is a leader in the sports entertainment industry operating the Saskatchewan Rush of the National Lacrosse League and Saskatoon Blades of the Western Hockey League.
Regina Red Sox President, Gary Brotzel, had this to say: “It has been far too long since we have had a Saskatoon franchise in the WCBL. It is extremely encouraging to have SEG bring a new WCBL franchise to Saskatoon. SEG’s depth of experience in the sports market through their ownership of the Saskatoon Blades and the Saskatchewan Rush will be a great addition to the WCBL. The profile of the WCBL has been growing by leaps and bounds over the past several years among our fans and business partners, and the decision by SEG to launch a team in Saskatoon is a testament to that fact. Welcome aboard Saskatoon!”
Associate General Manager of SEG, Steve Hildebrand, offered: “SEG really appreciates… the opportunity to join an already growing and great league. It has been too long since Saskatoon has had a team and we are looking forward to bringing exciting Western Canadian Baseball back [to Saskatoon].
The addition of Saskatoon to the WCBL continues to elevate the WCBL’s profile among fans and business partners as top players from across college baseball in North America will now have the opportunity to play in all the major markets in Alberta and Saskatchewan.
