Love Letters to Baseball

Over the last year, we have asked a simple question of our guests on Alberta Dugout Stories: The Podcast.

“What does the game of baseball mean to you?”

It has resulted in some of the most heartfelt, genuine answers, which we wanted to gather together in one place as we celebrate the game of baseball.

Ready For The Warhawks

It wasn’t planned, but Tylor Jans managed to pack a spring worth of college baseball highlights into a matter of days.

From a strong start to the season with Cloud County College to the abrupt end with the COVID-19 pandemic to signing his Letter of Intent with the University of Louisiana Monroe, it’s safe to say March 2020 is a month the Edmonton native won’t soon forget.

Edmonton Prospects Season Preview

It’s hard to tell if the Edmonton Prospects have been regular-season underachievers or playoff overachievers the last few years.

The Prospects were a .500 team in the regular season from 2016 to 2018, and they appeared in the Western Canadian Baseball League (WCBL) finals in back-to-back years in that time. Last summer they upset the Okotoks Dawgs before the Medicine Hat Mavericks ended their playoff run.

They seem to get hot at a good time of year, but their inconsistent campaigns leave fans wanting more.
