VICTORIA, B.C. – Royal Athletic Park is about to become a haven for youth-level baseball, with exciting events over the next few days.

 On Thursday, June 15, the Victoria HarbourCats are hosting the annual “Zack Downey Memorial” baseball game, featuring the city’s two high-school-level baseball teams, the Victoria Eagles, coached by former HarbourCats coach Charlie Strandlund, and the Victoria Mariners. Game time for the Premier Baseball League regular season game is 6:00pm, and admission is $5 rush seating.

On Saturday, June 17, national women’s team players Claire Eccles, who pitches for the HarbourCats, and catcher Jennifer Gilroy will headline a Baseball BC girls grassroots camp focusing on fun and development, which will also serve as an identification opportunity for the Baseball Canada program. That session will take place from 2:00pm-4:00pm, following check-in at Royal Athletic Park.
