The Western Canadian Baseball League (WCBL) is Canada’s most recognized summer collegiate baseball league. The WCBL came to life in 2000 but prior to this time, the league took on many forms and different names. The WCBL boasts a long standing tradition of creating a showcase for top Canadian professional and college prospects while at the same time offering American college players the opportunity to hone their skills in front of enthusiastic baseball fans in towns and cities throughout the Prairies.
The WCBL is a wood bat league in the tradition of such outstanding American collegiate circuits as the Cape Cod League, the New England Collegiate League, the Coastal Plains League, the Northwoods League and in the nearby Pacific Northwest, the Pacific International League and the newly formed, West Coast Collegiate League.
There have been two constants over the decades that the WCBL and its predecessor leagues have been in operation: first, the quality of the baseball which professional scouts have consistently compared to the Single A professional level, and second, the quality of the summer experience for players.
In addition to offering a consistently high level of competition and coaching, the WCBL has always offered its players a first class summer experience. The summer months in Western Canada feature warm weather with long hours of sunshine. The western boundary of the WCBL is a short drive from the majestic Rocky Mountains and the spectacular mountain resort towns of Banff, Waterton and Lake Louise. Fly fishing streams abound in close proximity to our Saskatchewan and Alberta franchises. On top of all that as former WCBL alumni will tell you: players have not experienced hospitality until they have spent a summer playing baseball in Western Canada.
