For immediate release
The WMBL which will change its name to the WCBL is excited to announce more regular season games coming in 2019!
It was determined that our teams and our fans would benefit from an extension of the regular season in order to offer more home games during the best weather of the summer. In the past our regular season has consisted of 48 games (24 home games) followed by best of five (5) playoff series.
Commencing in 2019, the regular season will be extended into the first week of August and we will offer 56 games, including 28 home games, in other words four (4) more home games for our fans at a time when the weather is at its best.
Commencing in 2019 the league will be known as the Western Canadian Baseball League (or WCBL, for short). This change came about following a comprehensive Vision Session conducted by our league this past spring. It was determined that the League would benefit in many respects, including the attraction of top U.S and Canadian college players, by emphasizing what made our league unique, that is our Canadian identity.
