Calgary Baseball

What do the words Calgary Vipers mean to you? If you're a fan of Calgary baseball then you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. But for the uninitiated, here's a little background information.

The Calgary Vipers, although they are not classed as a major league baseball team, are one of the teams forming the Northern League. Despite a recently troubled history surrounding their ownership, their fan base has been growing in strength over the past few years and they are gaining in popularity within the Calgary baseball community.

If you're interested in finding out more about the Vipers or want to watch a game, then maybe drop down to Foothills Stadium. Where's that? Right next to McMahon Stadium at 1817 Crowchild Trail NW. Check this map.

Or visit the team's website at http://www.calgaryvipers.com/index.html.

If you fancy learning how to play baseball rather than just watching it, then perhaps Baseball Alberta is an option for you. Baseball Alberta is a non profit organization that aims to promote amateur baseball within the local community.

Yes there is a membership fee to join. But besides the sport element there are other events that the organization arranges that, as a member, you are eligible to participate in.

Baseball Alberta caters to all ages. I think the youngest member is somewhere around 5 with the oldest being in their 60's. So it's a great way to enjoy sport, socialize and help the community at the same time.

If you're interested in finding our more details, access their website at http://www.baseballalberta.com/.

Other ways to participate

Betting on the outcome of a sports match is always a popular past-time, and in Calgary baseball betting is no exception. There are numerous options of betting on the outcome of a baseball game such as the number of home runs, number of strikeouts, as well as the final score.

Rather than wander down to the local gambling shop, most people are now placing their bets on line and as a result some local shops could close due to lack of demand. The Western Canada Lottery Corporation Sports Select games remain popular, and you can play at any 7-Eleven or similar store.

All in all, whether you're interested in watching a Calgary baseball game, learning to play baseball or just placing a bet on the outcome of a baseball game, you're sure to find something for yourself, family and friends.

Even if you don't like this sport when you arrive, you may find yourself falling in love with it during your stay in Calgary, because of its accessibility.
