About Roberto Alomar

Roberto “Robbie” Alomar is the definition of a Major League Baseball Icon. He was born in Puerto Rico and raised by his mother Maria alongside his brother Sandy Jr. When Alomar wasn’t absorbed in baseball in Puerto Rico, he and his older brother were up in the Majors shagging balls with his father, Santos “Sandy” Alomar, Sr.; who was an All-star second baseman and had a 15 year MLB career.

Like his father, Robbie Alomar was one of the greatest second baseman to play the great game we call baseball. His career began at the young age of 17 with the San Diego Padres where he played alongside his brother, Sandy Jr. an All Star Catcher, and was coached by his father.

In 1991, Alomar was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays with his fellow World Series Champion, Joe Carter. He went on to have a very successful career with Toronto winning a Gold Glove Award and All-star accomplishments each year he was in Toronto (1991-1995), and two-time World Series Championships with Toronto in 1992 and 1993.  He went onto win many more awards such as two Silver-Sluggers with his other respected MLB teams.

Alomar was the first ever Blue Jay to be inducted to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2011 by a vote of 90%. It was very clear how much Alomar meant to the Toronto Blue Jays when they retired his number, #12, in August of 2011.

In March of 2005, Roberto Alomar began to have vision and back troubles. This unfortunately meant he would retire from the game that he loved. After a 17 year MLB career, Alomar recorded .300 Batting Average, 2724 hits, 210 Home Runs, 1,134 RBI’s, and 474 Stolen Bases.

Alomar now resides in Toronto with his wife Kim Perks as an advisor to the Toronto Blue Jays. He travels with the Jays Care Organization across Canada to help promote Baseball in Canada and help make sure that every child, no matter their families’ income, can play the game that he loved.

 

About the Lethbridge Bulls

Our Mission: “To provide quality sports entertainment to Southern Alberta through the venue of Summer Collegiate Baseball”

Our Vision: “To have the most respected Summer Collegiate team and facility in the country”

Our Commitment: Integrity & Honesty

The Lethbridge Bulls were an expansion club in the Western Major Baseball League in 1999. Founded by Doug Jones, the Bulls were successful right from the beginning. Jones felt that the Bulls were a perfect fit for Lethbridge, as the PDA was in the city as well.

The team played in the Saskatchewan Major Baseball League for their first three years in existence. Due to the departure of the Lethbridge Black Diamonds, the Bulls now occupied Henderson Stadium as the primary tenant.  Attendance for the first three years was very weak and the competition was limited to three or four Saskatchewan teams.

Current Bulls President/GM Kevin Kvame, who acted as an advisor with Jones since the inception of, became the Bulls 1st GM in 2002.  It was at that time, that the Bulls advocated for a much stronger league and wanted expansion into Alberta as a condition of continuing with the league. The league agreed with the Bulls argument and 2002 became the first season for the Western Major Baseball League including the birth of long-time rival Medicine Hat Mavericks.

The 2014 season for the Bulls represents its 16th in the WMBL.  During the Bulls tenure in the league, they have won four Western Division titles and advanced to the WMBL Championship Series in 2007 before losing a heartbreaking finale in 2007 to the champion, Swift Current Indians. Last year in 2012, the Bulls fielded the league's Most Valuable Player, 2B/OF Ridge Gonsoulin. Ridge also established a new WMBL single-season consecutive game hitting streak by safely hitting in 25 straight games during the 2012 summer.

The Bulls Baseball Club will forever be tied to the tragedy that occurred in December 2011 when two of its players were tragically killed in Claresholm, Alberta.  Tanner Craswell and Mitch MacLean will forever be remembered as Lethbridge Bulls. In 2011, Craswell was a 1st-Team WMBL All-Star, with MacLean taking the Bulls Rookie of the Year Award. Please check out the tab on our menu bar for a section dedicated to these two ballplayers and we ask that you continue to remember these special young men taken far too early from all of those who loved them.  The Bulls were proud to retire #13 (Craswell) and #6 (MacLean) prior to the 2012 season and will continue to pay tribute to them annually at the TCMM Memorial Game each May.

The Bulls are excited about our next number of years in the WMBL and look forward to many more successful seasons on the field at Spitz Stadium.
