March 31, 2023 – Western Major Baseball League (WMBL)Medicine Hat Mavericks News Release

The WCBL announced Wednesday that Saskatoon has been awarded an expansion franchise to begin play in the 2024 season. The team will be operated by the Saskatoon Entertainment Group, a leader in the Canadian sports entertainment industry, who also operate the Saskatchewan Rush of the National Lacrosse League and the Saskatoon Blades of the Western Hockey League.

“This is an exciting time for the WCBL,” says Mavericks Owner/General Manager Greg Morrison.

“With facility improvements in several markets and the expansion teams of Sylvan Lake (2021) and now Saskatoon, the league continues to establish being a sought-after league for players, coaches and fans. I especially look forward to learning from the Saskatoon Entertainment Group’s vast sport industry experience in hockey (Blades) and lacrosse (Rush).”

Associate General Manager of SEG, Steve Hildebrand, had this to say:

“SEG really appreciates… the opportunity to join an already growing and great league. It definitely has been too long since Saskatoon has had a team and we are looking forward to bringing exciting Western Canadian Baseball back [to Saskatoon].”

This will be the first team to call the Saskatchewan city home since the Saskatoon Yellow Jackets folded following the 2014 season. Stay tuned for more details on the newest franchise in the coming months.
