The Edmonton Prospects are a collegiate summer baseball team based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. They play in the Western Major Baseball League. The team was founded in 2005 as the Edmonton Big River Prospects but moved to the Edmonton suburb of St. Albert after only one year over use of Telus Field with the Edmonton Cracker-Cats of the Northern League.[1][2] They took a leave of absence from the WMBL for the 2008 season before returning in 2009 under their current name.[3][4]

Prior to the 2012 season they played out of John Fry Park on the south side of Edmonton. In 2012 the Prospects began playing out of TELUS Field.[5]
