The Moose Jaw Miller Express are offering a way to become a little more invested in the Major League Baseball season while bolstering their coffers at the same time.

The Western Canadian Baseball League squad will be holding their first-ever Baseball Draft on Sunday, Apr. 11 at the Crushed Can Sports Bar and Nightclub, with the fundraising event helping the team out at a good time.

The Miller Express announced just last week that for the second consecutive season there would be no WCBL baseball at Ross Wells Park.

The buy-in is $300 per team with a maximum of 20 teams. Any number of people are able to be part of a team — for example, six individuals putting in $50 each — but only four will be able to attend the physical draft due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions.

Each team will draft 12 position players, with only offensive stats counting to their overall total.

Points will accumulate throughout the season, with the top three totals at the end of the season winning cash prizes.

An MLB calcutta will also be held, featuring teams sold in groups of three and 10 groups to auction off. If a team in a group reaches the playoffs, payouts will increase, with 20 per cent eventually going to the group with the World Series champion.

A total of 15 per cent of the calcutta will go to the Miller Express.
