"Baseball Day In Canada"
“Coming off two years of the unprecedented COVID pandemic, the event will be a celebration of everything good and positive about baseball in Canada,” said the Okotoks Dawgs Baseball Club in a news release Saturday. “The WCBL is the only high level league in the country, apart from MLB where the Blue Jays have finally come home to Rogers Centre, which has offered its fans and players a competitive 2021 season. The response of baseball fans to once again be able to celebrate this fabulous outdoor summer activity with family and friends has been overwhelmingly enthusiastic.”
The live-stream will include a number of interviews with some of Canada’s most influential and prominent baseball people, including Cooperstown Hall-of-Fame journalist and Postmedia legend Bob Elliott of the Canadian Baseball Network.
Others featured on the feed will be Scott Crawford, the president of the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame, former major leaguer and current president of Baseball Canada Jason Dickson, Alberta’s Minister of Culture Ron Orr, Alberta’s secretary for small business and tourism Martin Long, Dawgs founding and managing director John Ircandia, Major League Baseball draft selection and former Dawgs star Tristan Peters, Alberta Dugout Stories creator Ian Wilson and WCBL president Kevin Kvame.
See you there!
