WMBL President Kevin Kvame was pleased to confirm the 2018 Championship Series has been finalized after two exciting Game 5 Division clinching games on Friday.

The Regina Red Sox defeated the Weyburn Beavers 7-6 at Tom Laing Field while the Medicine Hat Mavericks advanced to the league final with a 11-4 win over the Edmonton Prospects. 

Medicine Hat’s last appearance in the WMBL final was 2014 when they defeated Swift Current for the League title. The Regina Red Sox last played in the championship game in 2015.
