Doug Jones, 65, has been a leader in the baseball community across Alberta for over 30 years. He’s been a part of baseball in nearly all capacities, managing Team Alberta during the Canada Summer Games in the ‘90s, owning multiple baseball franchises across the province, and helped found the WMBL in 2001.
Jones was president of Baseball Alberta from 1992-1996, and a manager of Team Alberta at the 1993 and 1997 Canada Games– which included a bronze-medal winning team in 1997.
Jones was a founding director of the Prairie Baseball Academy college baseball program in Lethbridge in 1995. The Academy has sent over 300 student athletes to NCAA, NAIA colleges and universities.
Following that, Jones founded the Lethbridge Bulls in 1999, and was the founding president of the Western Major Baseball League in 2001–which now features 12 teams across Alberta and Saskatchewan. Jones is also a former co-owner of both the Red Deer Generals and Medicine Hat Mavericks of the WMBL.
As a businessman, he has been farming in the Oyen area for 35 years, and owned/operated two charter bus companies.
Jones is currently the mayor of Oyen, a position which he has held for a total of 11 years. During his time as mayor, he worked with 60+ municipalities to create the Canadian Badlands Ltd. (the largest municipally-driven tourism destination in Canada), of which he was president for five years.
He is married to his wife Yvonne of 42 years and the couple have three children and eight grandchildren.
