Mahoning Valley Scrappers are going to be playing as the Peppers in Oil for a game this season in the NYPL

 

 

Are peppers in oil known for being served up along with a wooden-spoon beating courtesy of an angry old woman? Because that's what that character artwork suggests.

You sure that’s an old woman? Because the face suggests Michael Jackson in the later years. I think it’s the questionable lack of nose.

Attended a Harrisburg Senators game over the weekend and noticed in their team store they had a good amount of Expos merchandise. Almost conned myself into buying a shirt, but alas I resisted the urge.

This promotion actually began back in 2018 for one night only and they chose to do it more often in 2019.

This season, the WMBL (Western Major Baseball League) changed it's name to the WCBL (Western Canadian Baseball League), which I think is a major name upgrade in terms of actually recognizing where the league is. For the record, it's a summer collegiate wood bat league with teams in Alberta and Saskatchewan.

I've always be meaning to post of dump of all the team's logos in here, because there are some interesting ones. I'm also pulling these logos off various effort levels of websites and social media (you know, junior league sports and all) so the quality may vary. With that, I can't really find good pictures of the jerseys for all teams, so I don't have any posted here, also so not to have an insanely big post. 

 

This league can trace back in various forms to 1931, so some of teams are pretty old with weird history's of existence (you know, junior league sports and all).

 

Melville Millionaires (SK)

The script M is their "primary". Fun fact: Millionaires is also the name of Melville's Jr. A hockey team in the SJHL.

 

Moose Jaw Miller Express (SK)

Edmonton Prospects (AB)

Fun fact: Those aren't train tracks behind Miner Forty-Niner there, it's the Walterdale Bridge. which is near the stadium.

Swift Current 57's

They were the Swift Current Indians until last season. 57's refers to how many years the team had existed as Indians.

 

Yorkton Cardinals (SK)

Fun fact: Angels Gold Glove shortstop Andrelton Simmons played the 2010 summer with Yorkton

 

Weyburn Beavers (SK)

Okotoks Dawgs (AB)

Fun fact: "Est. 1996" isn't entirely correct. The Calgary Dawgs started as a youth travel team program in 1996 and started the summer collegiate team in 2003. Then in 2005, an independent team started in Calgary leading to disputes over the stadium with the collegiate Dawgs suspending operations for 2006. They then built a new stadium/facilities in Okotoks (a town about 30 minutes south of Calgary), moving the collegiate team and the youth program down for 2007. So the collegiate team itself has really only existed since 2003 .
