| Sunburst Expansion Continues

Baseball Alberta’s Senior AAA league, the Sunburst League, is expanding once again with the addition of the Calgary Diamondbacks for 2023. The addition of the Diamondbacks comes a little more than two months after the Calgary Rockies were accepted into the Sunburst League as the first Calgary franchise since 2010. The 2023 Sunburst League is now shaping up to include the Diamondbacks, along with the Calgary Rockies, Edmonton Cubs, Edmonton Padres, Red Deer Riggers, St Albert Tigers and Sherwood Park Athletics.

The addition of the Diamondbacks will see the Sunburst League now structure with a North Division and South Division for the 2023 season. Teams will play a regular season from mid-May through playoffs in August with the winner being named Senior AAA Provincial Champions and represent Alberta at the 2024 Men’s Nationals. The league is primarily made up of local baseball players with experience ranging from AAA association baseball to collegiate baseball experience.

In 2023, baseball fans will get to experience the Baseball Canada Men’s National Championship as it will be host in Red Deer by the Red Deer Riggers. The Sherwood Park Athletics will be participating as Alberta’s representative in the tournament scheduled to run August 24-27, 2023.
