Canada, USA to play Women's Baseball Friendship Series
The five-game series is set to take place from July 28-August 1 in Thunder Bay, Ontario May 9, 2022.

Baseball Canada and USA Baseball announced today plans for a five-game Women’s Baseball Friendship Series set to take place from July 28 – August 1 in Thunder Bay, Ontario. The series will mark the first time that both nations have played in international competition since the COPABE Women's Pan-American Championships in 2019.

“We’re fortunate to partner with the Thunder Bay International Baseball Association and USA Baseball to put this event together,” said Baseball Canada CEO Jason Dickson. “Fans in Thunder Bay can expect a highly entertaining series between two nations that always compete hard against one another.

“The chance to represent your country on home soil is a special opportunity that we’re excited to provide our athletes later this year.”

“We are thrilled to continue our strong relationship with Canada through an international friendship series this summer,” said USA Baseball Assistant Director of Baseball Operations Ann Claire Roberson. “Our two programs have a storied history of respect, camaraderie, and outstanding competition and we cannot wait to add another chapter to that in 2022. We are looking forward to an incredible experience for our athletes in Thunder Bay and representing the U.S. on international soil once again.”

Thunder Bay has a rich history of hosting international baseball events including the 2010 and 2017 WBSC U-18 Baseball World Cups along with the “Warm Up to the Worlds” U-18 series in 2008.

A schedule for the five-game series and additional event detail will be announced at a later date.
