April 30, 2013, Victoria, BC (ISN) – General Manager Holly Jones is pleased to announce that the Victoria HarbourCats will be working with the British Columbia Premier Baseball League to host a Victoria Mariners home game against the Victoria Eagles at Royal Athletic Park on May 28.
This game will provide a great opportunity for PBL players to get in front of HarbourCats fans and show off the bright future of baseball in Victoria. Most importantly, all donations made during the game will go towards the Zack Downey Fund which will help in supporting a Victoria Mariner’s player who is currently battling Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.
Zack has already undergone six chemotherapy treatments and doctors believe he has a good chance to beat the disease. The funds from this game will help Zack’s family achieve the goal of bringing him back home this summer. Adrian Somers, President of the Victoria Mariners said, “The HarbourCats have provided a fantastic opportunity to get great exposure for our players and to support a cause that is important to many baseball fans in Victoria; we are looking forward to playing this game and hopefully getting Zack back on the field soon.”
The HarbourCats are pleased to invite season ticket holders to the game to provide a preview of the game day experience at Royal Athletic Park. In addition, the public is invited to attend the game as well; tickets can be acquired at no charge through the HarbourCats website. Martin Winstanley, Chair of the Victoria Eagles Baseball program said, “The players are really excited at the chance to play at Royal Athletic Park in front of the HarbourCats fans, it will be a great way to showcase the baseball talent that is already right here in Victoria.”
