The Lethbridge Bulls are a Summer college baseball team playing at Spitz Stadium in Lethbridge, Alberta. The team is a member of the Western Major Baseball League, a collegiate summer baseball league operating in the prairie provinces of Canada. The team was founded in 1999 by Doug Jones, mayor of the town of Oyen. Kevin Kvame has been the President and General Manager of the Bulls since 2005 and was the GM for the 3 preceding years as well. The current head coach is Ryan MacDonald who works as the assistant coach for Prairie Baseball Academy as well. He took over the role in 2014, following these other head coaches: Scott Rhodes (2008-2013), Todd Hubka (1999-2001 & 2006-2008), John Bradley (2005), and Les McTavish (2002-2004).
The club played out of Henderson Stadium following the relocation of the Pioneer League franchise (Black Diamonds) to Missoula in the fall of 1998. The Stadium was renamed in 2007 when a 14-year partnership began between the Stadium and the Spitz Sunflower Seed company from Bow Island. Tom Droog, its founder and owner was instrumental in seeing the name change through. The Bulls have won the Western Division title on 4 occasions and the League Championship once, in 2015. They have been 1st overall in the regular season of the WMBL on 3 occasions.
In 2011, two players from the Lethbridge Bulls were murdered in the Claresholm highway massacre.
