Weather-tested and tough – that’s what makes Alberta baseball players such attractive recruits south of the border. And no American school added more of them for the 2019 season than the Colby Community College Trojans.
Nearly half of the Trojans’ 30-man roster includes players who are originally from Alberta or those who trained here.
It’s a team where Okotoks Dawgs and Vauxhall Jets quickly shed their rivalries, and an Edmonton Prospect slugger needs to have a short memory about losing in the Western Canadian Baseball League (WCBL) playoffs to the Medicine Hat Mavericks last summer.
