The Yorkton Cardinals would like to welcome the following players to Yorkton for 2017 season
Cameron Sommers from Puyallup WA. He is a 6'2" RHP and should be a key piece to our bullpen. On his tape I saw good fluidity and deception.
Robbie Watson from Bowen Island BC. He is a 6'7" RHP who will thrive from our pitching program. He is very talented and has big time ability to miss a lot of bats. He should be very good this season.
Eric Little from Saugas CA. He is a 6'5" RHP who throws 3 quality pitches with a high upside. He should pitch out of our rotation this summer
Mitchell Worthington from Maryville MO. He is a 6'3" RHP who throws hard and is very fluid with a very good upside. I believe Mitchell will thrive from our pitching program during his time with the team.
Hank Forrest from Eugene OR. He is a very good athlete who should steal some bases for us. As well as being a very good outfielder, he has good tools and bat speed that should play well in this league.
Bryce Roesch from Beaverton OR. He was the Metro player of the year in a very good high school conference. He is a very good athlete and is physically ready to play and has the tools for success in the WMBL.
Jahziel Morel from Santo Domingo DR. He will catch, DH and possibly play a little first base for us this summer. He is a good hitter with an advanced approach that should play well and provide some power in our lineup.
Jake Davidson from Amador Valley CA. He will doing some catching for us this summer, he has a high upside and a body to hit for power as well as good arm strength behind the plate. He should be a big contributor for us.
We will be holding our AGM on February 19/17 at 2:00 p.m. at Tapps Brewing Company. Our coach, Bryn, has recruited some excellent ball players that are committed to putting a winning team on the field for the club this summer. We will be facing a lot of challenges off the field with Bill's passing, as he took care of so many aspects of our organization. We are asking you, our fans and supporters, to attend this AGM to give suggestions, offer advice or join our organization. We appreciate all the help and input that comes our way. If you have any questions, or can't make the meeting, but would like your opinion heard, please contact Karen at 306-783-2926.

The Yorkton Cardinals are very excited to announce 3 returning players for our 2017 roster.
Justin Johnson was an outstanding pitcher for us last summer. Justin has tremendous mound presence and is only going to get better. He will be a key piece in our pitching rotation this coming summer.
Derek Marshall will be a veteran for us this summer as well as being a key leader for our ball club. He can fill many roles for us as a starting pitcher or coming out of the bullpen.
Caden Rosholt will be returning to the infield this summer. Caden was probably the youngest everyday player in this league last year and was great for us and will only get better as he is tremendously talented. He has top notch bat speed that will play well against the pitchers in the WMBL.

The Yorkton Cardinals are deeply saddened by the news of the passing of our long time manager and head coach Bill Sobkow. Bill played a major part in bringing the WMBL to Yorkton and starting the franchise. Bill was a caring man who treated every player on his teams like one of his own, always making sure they were happy and comfortable in Yorkton, while always keeping family close. Every person in the organization will miss Bill and his love for the game of baseball, the players, fans, and volunteers of the Cards, and the City of Yorkton. Bill will be missed dearly by all the Cardinal volunteers and players, both current and former. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Bill's family and friends during this difficult time.

Cardinals Sign Head Coach for 2016 WMBL Summer Collegiate Season
Tuesday April 26, 2016
The Yorkton Cardinals are very pleased to announce the signing of Omaha native Bryn Biancalana as the head coach for 2016. He is the Zone Training Instructor at Perfect Mind Perfect Motion Baseball Academy (PMPM). Bryn brings to Yorkton an excellent pedigree, as he is the son of former Major League Infielder Buddy Biancalana who won the 1985 World Series with the Kansas City Royals, first beating the Toronto Blue Jays in 7 games and then the St. Louis Cardinals also in 7.
Bryn brings a wealth of baseball knowledge because he has been around the game all his life. Not only did he accompany his father to many major league clubhouses, he took a very keen fascination to the game as he progressed through his teens and early twenties. He feels he certainly has matured in the process of teaching and dealing with the game over the last 5 years. The PMPM philosophy of slowing the game down and adopting the concept of motion factor is groundbreaking, which draws on neuroscience.
Bryn has a unique ability to connect with young baseball players striving to achieve professional status. Since collegiate baseball involves players under the age of 25, this becomes a perfect storm for him to charge his players with philosophies that are new to them. Bryn has coached in Edmonton (WMBL) and Saskatoon (WMBL) in 2011 and 2012 and very pleased to be in Yorkton (WMBL) for 2016.
The Cardinals begin their 2016 season in Melville on Saturday May 28 and return to Yorkton for a 7PM game vs Melville on Sunday the 29th.
