Vision Statement: Our vision includes teaching our players about teamwork in an environment where players want to learn the game of baseball and continuously improve their skills and abilities, to show respect and act in a respectful manner at all times, to incorporate positivity and maximize effort, and enjoy baseball while still competing at a high level.
The Cape Breton Ramblers are a rebranded and rebuilt Midget Division and Senior Little League Baseball team located right here on Cape Breton Island. The team is comprised of the top 15 - 16 year olds from across the island that compete in the Midget Division of Baseball Nova Scotia, as well as, the Senior Division of Little League Canada. With a new coaching staff and new direction, the Ramblers look to continue with great sportsmanship, competitiveness and hard work as they compete for a Midget Title and Senior Little League Canadian National Championship!
The Ramblers, previously Cape Breton Cubs, were the 2015 Canadian Senior Little League National Champions and went on to represent Canada at the Senior Little League World Series in Bangor, Maine, USA. It was the first and only time the Cubs were able to win the Canadian Senior Little League National Title. In 2018, the Ramblers were silver medallists, losing in the National Championship to the host Edmonton Cubs.
We hope you follow along and experience history along side us as we develop baseball in Cape Breton.
