Can-Am League Expanding to Trois Rivieres?

  1. This was a great franchise during the 1970’s with the Eastern League. Trois Rivieres has a great fan base, and combined with Quebec City, will be very successful.

  2. I hope it works out. Hopefully the Capitales organize some bus trips for fans so we can go see Caps games there.

    It has been a long time coming-baseball is back in Trois Rivieres and hopefully it will be a success. I am just worried about the Can-Am League.

    According to one of the articles, there are five or six members of the ownership group, including hockey player Marc-André Bergeron from the NHL’s Tampa Bay Lightening, former baseball player Emmanuel Turcotte, Can-Am League Commissioner Miles Wolff, and former MLB pitcher Éric Gagné.
