The Edmonton Padres have partnered with academy programs from across the Canadian Prairies to provide players with enhanced exposure and competition levels during the fall. Joining the Padres are the Calgary Bucks and programs from Lloydminster, Saskatoon, Regina and Winnipeg to form the Central Canadian Baseball League. Made up of programs with similar mindsets, this elite fall league features goals of developing and showcasing its players while working together to offer the highest quality of fall baseball league play on the Prairies. Divisions will include 18U Varsity, 18U Junior Varsity, 15U and 13U levels of play.
The 18U Varsity and Junior Varsity league schedules will begin on Labour Day Weekend and wrap up with an indoor college showcase/all-star event at the state-of-the-art Gordie Howe Sports Complex in Saskatoon in mid-October while the 15U division will run for 4-6 weeks, depending on weather. Additional showcase tournaments will round out the 18U Padres FPP team schedules to provide players with the highest level of competition possible plus maximize opportunities to play in front of and interact with college baseball coaches and recruiters as well as professional baseball scouts.
Although there is a 13U division planned by the league, the Padres have opted out for 2021.
