Edmonton, AB – Rexall Sports and Entertainment (RSE) has informed the North American League (NAL) the Edmonton Capitals are suspending play for the 2012 season. With just four teams registered for the 2012 season in the Northern Division of the NAL, down from ten teams in 2009, it is no longer acceptable for the Capitals to continue operations under such circumstances. In addition to the Capitals, the other four squads are based in Yuma, Arizona, San Rafael (San Francisco), California, and Maui, Hawaii.
The Edmonton Capitals are the reigning NAL Champions, hosting over 125,000 customers last season at iconic Telus Field. We are dedicated to providing Edmontonians with the best baseball product available and RSE will explore all options to bring baseball back to Edmonton for the 2013 season. We thank our fans in Edmonton and beyond for their support.
