A little history of the Vancouver Canadians:
After the 1999 Pacific Coast League season – a year in which the Vancouver Canadians won their third championship in their 21-year history – the C’s left town for Sacramento, CA. The new home of the Canadians, soon to become the Sacramento Rivercats, had everything that Vancouver did not: a stable ownership group, a state-of-the-art ballpark, and a much closer geographic locale to the parent Oakland A’s. In the team’s wake, it looked as though Nat Bailey’s doors would be nailed shut with professional baseball just a memory. But just days after the Triple-A Canadians picked up and left town, a flicker of hope became a beacon of light as former C’s owner, Fred Herrmann, decided to bring his short-season franchise from Medford, Oregon, up to Vancouver in time for the 2000 Northwest League season. The team, known as the Timberjacks in Southern Oregon, took on the name Canadians as Herrmann saw very quickly upon is arrival that Vancouver still very much loved baseball and their ‘Canadians’.
The Canadians turned a new chapter historically at 7:12 pm on Wednesday, June 21st, 2000 at Nat Bailey Stadium as starting pitcher Conor Brooks threw a fastball over the heart of the plate against the visiting Yakima Bears. The C’s went on to lose 3-2 in 12 innings, but baseball had survived one of it’s strongest challenges in Vancouver keeping the game alive without missing a season.
The Canadians are proud to play at one of Minor League Baseball’s most historic venues, Nat Bailey Stadium. 2009 will mark the 58th year that baseball in Vancouver has called ‘The Nat’ home.
Out of towners can enjoy some of the best baseball in B.C. and best rooms when they stay at either the Accent Inn Vancouver Airport hotel or Accent Inn Burnaby. Both locations are approx 17-20 minutes drive to the Nat Bailey Stadium!
