Kelowna Falcons

Welcome Salem

The West Coast League happily announced the addition of its 17th member in Salem, Oregon, opening play in 2025. The Salem Baseball Club will join the Springfield Drifters, Bend Elks, Corvallis Knights, and Portland Pickles as the league’s fifth Oregon-based team.

“When you look at a map,” said WCL Commissioner Rob Neyer, “adding another team in the Willamette Valley is an easy call for us. We were simply waiting for the perfect situation, and with the Salem Baseball Club, that’s now exactly what we’ve got.”

Our Falcons most likely won’t see the new Salem team that often. Salem Oregon is roughly nine hours away from Kelowna, so will no doubt be grouped in with a lengthy road swing whenever that would be. Conversely when they visit Elks Stadium they will make a stop in Kamloops as well.

The Salem Baseball Club name is a placeholder until a new team name, logo, and mascot are determined and unveiled to the public. SBC will play its home games at Willamette University’s ballpark in downtown Salem.

Welcome Salem, we can’t wait to beat you 🙂
