Fort Sask expresses interest
Posted October 30, 2012
An email sent to league executives from a Fort Saskatchewan representative has the PBL once again looking at expansion after a few years of a six-team league.
The PBL, once-burned by Sherwood Park who at the last minute, influenced by NCABL members, chose to join a different league, is cautious at the moment.
The email is being reviewed by President Steven Pahl, and negotiations will ensue.
Fort Sasktachewan currently does not have a team in the NCABL but is home to the highly successful Ft. Saskatchewan Athletics of the Sunburst League who annually challenge for a national championship. They also have an Over 30 league team in the Alberta West Central Baseball Association.
Sherwood Park struggled in its first couple seasons before a successful 11-7 campaign this year in the NCABL and their first playoff berth. Word of a second team from Sherwood Park joining the PBL is often mentioned, but nothing has come of it.
More to come on this developing story.
