The Longueuil Ducs (French: Ducs de Longueuil) are a junior baseball team that play in the Ligue de Baseball Élite du Québec. The Ducs play their home games at Parc Paul-Pratt in Longueuil, Quebec, Canada. Established in 1957 by former Montreal Canadiens star Émile Bouchard[1] as the Longueuil Junior, the team was later renamed the Longueuil Marquis, before settling on its current name, the Longueuil Ducs. The Ducs are one of the oldest baseball clubs in the province of Quebec.[2]
