It's a critical July home series for the Victoria HarbourCats, and Head Coach Brian McRae has set his rotation with the Yakima Valley Pippins arriving at RAP for games Tue-Wed-Thur.
All games are 6:35 pm starts (gates open 5:30 pm)
TUESDAY, July 11 -- RHP Taylor Propokis (Colorado Mesa)
WEDNESDAY, July 12 -- LHP Claire Eccles (UBC)
THURSDAY, July 13 -- LHP Jack Owen (Auburn)
Taylor Prokopis gets his second start for the team, while lefty Claire Eccles will make her first WCL regular season start -- she has made five appearances, four in-league and one start in non-league, in her first season. In the series finale, lefty Jack Owen will take the ball.
It's also a very, very busy promotional week for the HarbourCats, that concludes on the weekend with the Burnaby Bulldogs (PIL) in for a non-league two-game set that involves a Saturday FIREWORKS game, and is a preview of the Baseball Canada Men's Championship, slated for RAP in August. Burnaby is the BC rep for that tournament as the defending provincial champions.
Raptor Detailing will be selecting a car to clean up and make to shine with a special promotion this week as well -- details to be announced at the games!
THROWBACK TUESDAY -- Welcome back, Victoria Mussels! Thanks to Popeye's Supplements in Victoria, the Victoria Mussels (Muscles?) return to the field at RAP, as the HarbourCats will be wearing special throwback jerseys, available as well for sale in the merch booth. Popeye's will be giving out a number of cups and gift cards, and shirt tosses into the crowd!
Also, it's ANAWIM SOCK TOSS NIGHT, bring socks and throw them on the field when the HarbourCats hit their first home run. This game is sponsored by Christian J. Stewart Photography, official photographer of the HarbourCats.
MUSIC BINGO WEDNESDAY -- We did this last year, and back by popular demand with Shawn Gorman's Music Bingo machine!
THURSDAY WITH WESTSHORE U-LOCK MINI-STORAGE -- Great sponsor from the Westshore helps celebrate HarbourCats baseball and support Tour de Rock cancer fundraising, with giveaways planned.
