Edmonton joins WCL

EDMONTON, Alberta — The bus rides get longer and longer for the Port Angeles Lefties and other West Coast League baseball teams.

The summer collegiate baseball league added its third expansion team for the 2021 season with Tuesday’s announcement that the Edmonton Riverhawks will become the WCL’s 15th franchise.

The Riverhawks now join the Nanaimo NightOwls and Kamloops NorthPaws among three WCL expansion teams, all in Canada, set to begin play next June. The newest WCL team will play at RE/MAX Field, former home of the Triple-A Pacific Coast League’s Edmonton Trappers.

“Adding a growing metropolis like Edmonton to the West Coast League is obviously a real coup for us,” said Commissioner Rob Neyer. “Toss in this outstanding ownership group and a tremendous stadium, and it’s easy to see why we’re so thrilled to welcome the Riverhawks to what is already the West’s top collegiate summer league.”

The Riverhawks are part of a growing geographical footprint for the WCL, as Alberta’s capital city will host the first WCL team located outside of Oregon, Washington and British Columbia.

Edmonton’s ownership group plans to upgrade RE/MAX Field with new artificial field turf, a new scoreboard and new stadium lighting.
