(Fort McMurray, November 14, 2018) - Baseball Canada announces Fort McMurray as the host community for the 2020 Baseball Canada Cup. The event will operate as a partnership between the Regional Recreation Corporation of Wood Buffalo (RRC) and the Fort McMurray Minor Baseball Association (FMMBA).

Teams from across the country will compete at both Shell Place Baseball Diamond and Ross Hennigar Park. The tournament is set to take place August 5-9, 2020.

“It is an honour to have our bid selected to host the 2020 Baseball Canada Cup,” says Jodie Cooper, Director of Sport and Recreation - Regional Recreation Corporation of Wood Buffalo. “Having Baseball Canada return to the region for a third tournament in only a five-year span speaks volumes as we strive to provide world-class athletic experiences in our own backyard.”

The announcement builds on the success of the 2016 Baseball Canada Cup and the 2018 Baseball Canada 18U National Championship, both hosted in Fort McMurray.
