2016 Baseball Canada Cup

The Baseball Canada Cup is Baseball Canada’s premier event. It is arguably the best players in the 17 & under age level across the nation. It consists of ten provincial teams that compete for the title and more importantly, these players have the ability to be scouted by amateur and professional scouts. The national tournament also services to assist in the selection of the Junior National Team players for future training camps and the National Team for the WBSC U-18 Baseball World Cup. In total we had 240 participants along with friends and family that joined us from August 3 – 8, 2016. This event was a partnership between the Regional Recreation Corporation of Wood Buffalo and Fort McMurray Minor Baseball Association. It took place at Ross Hennigar Ball Park and Shell Place at MacDonald Island Park.

The gold medal game consisted of 1,500 fans that filled Shell Place and Team Saskatchewan clinched the 2016 national title.
