LITTLE LEAGUE BASEBALL CANADA APPROVES SASKATCHEWAN AS A NEW DIVISION
Little League Baseball Canada approved the province of Saskatchewan as a two year
provisional Division, effective in 2013. The decision made by the members of Little
League Baseball Canada will most certainly provide a new look to the national tournaments.
Saskatchewan has historically been a district member of the Prairie Division and
had to compete against districts in Alberta for a national playoff berth. With the
changes taking effect, national tournaments across the country will now see seven
teams from across Canada competing; British Columbia, Prairies (Alberta), Saskatchewan,
Ontario, Quebec, and Atlantic Canada, as well as a host team.
