Winnipeg has been enjoying the sport of baseball since the early 1900s. However, the rebirth of today’s modern Winnipeg Goldeyes has made a remarkable impact on the sport in Canada. From 1994 until 2010, the Goldeyes were a member of the Northern League (NL) and won nine division championships during that span. They also hold the NL record for consecutive playoff appearances, with 10.
The baseball team’s unique name is originated from the goldeye fish which is cooked and prepared as part of a smoked dish or delicacy that is normally called the Winnipeg goldeye.
