Scenes from Canada Day Games
What a day of fun in Alberta and Saskatchewan … seven games, 11 Western Canadian Baseball League (WCBL) teams, and record ballpark attendance that has not been seen in these provinces in years. More than 10,000 spectators crowded around WCBL diamonds for outstanding game action, delicious eats, cool beverages, live music and fireworks displays.
Here’s a glimpse at some of the Canada Day fun that was had by those in attendance, as spotted on social media:
