The UFV Cascades Baseball Club was launched in the summer of 2016, becoming the sixth team in the Canadian College Baseball Conference (CCBC).
The program is a partnership between the Cascades athletic department and University Baseball Academy of Chilliwack.
University Baseball Academy played an exhibition schedule in the CCBC in 2015-16, and obtained full CCBC membership status for the 2016-17 season. General manager Lee Rogers and head coach Shawn Corness head up baseball operations for the Cascades Baseball Club, while Brian Finnie leads the way on the business side. The team plays out of Chilliwack’s Fairfield Island Park.
CCBC teams play fall exhibition schedules, with the regular season and playoffs running from March through May. Other teams in the league include the University of Calgary Dinos (Calgary, Alta.), Prairie Baseball Academy Dawgs (Lethbridge, Alta.), Thompson Rivers University WolfPack (Kamloops, B.C.), Okanagan College Coyotes (Kelowna, B.C.) and Vancouver Island Baseball Institute Mariners (Nanaimo, B.C.).
