Royals Join Canadian Premier Baseball League (CPBL)
Submitted By Matt Mills on Thursday, July 9, 2020
The Ontario Royals are excited to announce that we will be joining the Canadian Premier Baseball League (CPBL), beginning with the 2020/21 baseball season. 

The Royals are one of five organization joining the original six CPBL franchises, which has solidified itself as the top high school aged league in the country.

The Royals, along with Terriers Baseball (Mississauga), Windsor Selects (Windsor), Titans Baseball Club (Aurora), and Watson Elite Baseball (Ottawa), will join the pre-existing CPBL franchises - the Ontario Nationals, Ontario Blue Jays, Toronto Mets, Great Lakes Canadians, Ontario Astros, and Fieldhouse Pirates. 

“Since the inception of the Canadian Premier Baseball League, the goal has been to foster the growth of amateur baseball in Ontario while providing a high level of competition among like-minded programs to help that growth,” said league executive Adam Stern. “Current CPBL franchises have provided a solid backbone for the league for the last five years and are looking forward to adding a strong group of new organizations to the best amateur baseball league in Canada.”


Matt Mills, owner and GM of the Royals said of the decision; “We decided to apply for expansion when the opportunity was presented because we felt the CPBL would give our players the best opportunity to play the best competition, consistently. We feel that joining the CPBL puts our organization where it belongs — in the best 14U to 18U league in the country. The Royals are excited to move forward as a member of the CPBL.”


The five expansion programs will be welcomed into the fold officially in the spring of 2021, but the new organizations will be part of the exhibition schedule that will take place within the provincial guidelines in the fall.
