A new Trois-Rivières (Quebec) team in the independent Can-Am League was unveiled yesterday, as an ownership group that includes former major leaguer Eric Gagne met with the press.
The ownership group includes Emmanuel Turcotte, Michel Côté, Miles Wolff, Marc-Andre Bergeron, the aforementioned Gagne and team president Jean-François Picard, according to the The Press. Trois-Rivières hosted a series in the Can-Am League in 2010 and has also hosted affiliated and independent baseball over the years, most recently in the ill-fated Canadian Baseball League.
The team will play at Stade de Trois-Rivières, which opened in 1938. The city is expected to put some C$160,000 into ballpark improvements.
