For Immediate Release

March 15th, 2021

Victoria, BC – The Victoria HarbourCats continue to optimistically prepare for the possibility of West Coast League baseball at Wilson’s Group Stadium this summer, today announcing that limited release of single-game tickets for any game in the scheduled 2021 season, will start Tuesday March 16th at 9:00 AM Pacific Time.

Tickets can be purchased on-line via Select Your Tickets at www.harbourcats.com/tickets, or fans may drop in to the HarbourCats offices at 101-1814 Vancouver Street (Masking and COVID protocols in place).  Fans can also call the HarbourCats office to order over the phone at 778-265-0327.  The Select Your Tickets box office is not yet available for ticket purchases.

Fans should note that not all seats will be available for purchase at this time, with Premium Reserved, Right-Field Reserved and General Admission being available initially.

Single-Game seats in the Grandstand and Campbell Club sections behind home plate are NOT on sale at this time. Seating in these areas is limited, relative to other sections, and in the event that the HarbourCats have to allow for social distancing, these are being held in reserve to allow for re-distribution of current season ticket holders, addition of any new season tickets and the allocation of 2021 tickets to any existing 2020 game ticket holders, or 2020/2021 voucher renewals.

Tickets in the Premium Reserved and Right Field Reserved Sections are also being restricted at this point to allow for social distancing.  Sections 8 and 9 behind the HarbourCats dugout are also not for sale at this time, again to allow for possible re-distribution of season ticket holders and others as per the same reasons as the Grandstand seats above.

Those seats that are available in Sections 7, 11 and 12 in Premium Reserved and in Section 6, Right Field Reserved, will be sold on-line in pods of 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 tickets maximum.  Anyone seeking single tickets should call, or drop in to the HarbourCats office to order.

As per HarbourCats normal ticket policy, any 2021 ticket purchase is non-refundable. In the event that the 2021 season, or any portion of it, has to be cancelled due to COVID restrictions, weather, or other reasons , all 2021 tickets will hold their value and be eligible to be exchanged for seats for games later in 2021 or all games in 2022.

“We continue to be optimistic about the 2021 season and are thrilled to be able to open ticket sales at this point to the general public,” said HarbourCats Assistant GM, Ticketing and Media, Christian J. Stewart.  “We want to be ready to go when we are told we can go and we want our fans to be ready too!  This has the potential to be a great celebratory return to the ballpark, HarbourCats baseball and normalcy, and when we play, we expect that all our games and seats will be in high demand.”

It is expected that Grandstand, Campbell Club and additional Premium Reserved and Right Field Reserved seats will go on sale once more is learned about any potential seating protocols, or crowd limitations that may have to be in place.

In addition to the restricted single game tickets on the 16th, fans can still purchase 2021 season tickets in ALL sections, with the HarbourCats 101 for 2021 promotion still in effect until April 15th.  Each season ticket comes with free playoff tickets, a free whale watching pass from Prince of Whales, some HarbourCats merchandise and a 50.00 HarbourCats gift card (one per order).  Call or drop into the office to order. As an added bonus, any season ticket purchased before April 15th, will also be entered into a draw for a getaway to the Moon Water Lodge and dinner for two at the Malahat Chalet, a $400.00 value.

10-Game flex packs are also available in all sections except Campbell Club, giving you 10 anytime vouchers that you can use in any combination you like. These can also be purchased at the office , but are also available at our on-line store at https://victoria-harbourcats-official.myshopify.com/

Fans holding game tickets from the cancelled 2020 season, or 2020 or 2021 ticket vouchers are strongly urged to come into the HarbourCats offices as soon as possible to exchange those seats, subject to availability, for any 2021 game of their choice.  Initial windows of opportunity have been provided for these exchanges already, but with single game seats going on sale, availability in some sections could be limited.

Victoria HarbourCats – Manny’s hitting coach added to staff by Coach Haney

Published

on

2024 HarbourCats Coaching Staff – Front Row (L to R) Scott Anderson (Pitching Coach), Todd Haney (Head Coach), Trovin Valdez (Hitting Coach), Steve Sinclair (Bench Coach); Back Row (L to R): Ethan Fox (Bullpen Coach), Troy Birtwistle (First Base Coach).

For immediate release

April 16, 2024

VICTORIA, B.C. — An already strong coaching staff under WCL Coach of the Year Todd Haney just got stronger with the addition of Trovin Valdez, a former pro who made it to AAA in the Montreal Expos system.

Valdez, 50, was the personal hitting coach of Manny Ramirez during much of his record-setting MLB career and now works extensively with his sons Manny Jr. and Lucas, who have joined the HarbourCats for the 2024 WCL season. Valdez, who was once traded for lefthander David Wells, also works with a number of MLB players from his base in Florida, moving around the continent — and now will spend the summer exclusively in Victoria working with all HarbourCats hitters.

Haney, who has been with the HarbourCats since 2018 and Head Coach since 2019, is proud to unveil the entire staff for 2024:

  • Todd Haney, Head Coach (5th year, 4th as Head Coach)
  • Trovin Valdez, Hitting/Outfield Coach (First year)
  • Scott Anderson, Pitching Coach (Second year)
  • Troy Birtwistle, First Base Coach (Sixth year)
  • Steve Sinclair, Bench Coach (Second year)
  • Ethan Fox, Bullpen Coach (Third year, former HarbourCats player)

Under Haney, the HarbourCats led the WCL in hits, runs and stolen bases in 2023 and set a WCL record with an astounding 25-2 home record at Wilson’s Group Stadium at RAP, adding two more home wins in as many dates in the playoffs. The HarbourCats reached the WCL’s final game for the third time in five seasons.

Jaxon Williams (pictured right), part of the 2023 staff, is unable to return due to career reasons and the HarbourCats thank him and wish him all the best, he will always be a part of the HarbourCats family.

“This is a tremendous staff under incredible leadership from Todd — our players will be well served in their development,” said Christian Stewart, GM of the HarbourCats. “We couldn’t be happier with the makeup of this group, and we’re excited to see Trovin go to work. Our team set multiple team and league records on the offensive side of the game last year and that exciting style of play will be on display for our fans again.”

Valdez stole more than 250 bases as a pro, spanning nine seasons, and he joins former pro players Haney (five years MLB with Expos, Cubs and Mets), Anderson (also Expos system), Sinclair (MLB lefty with Blue Jays and Mariners), and Birtwistle (Australia). Fox played college ball and is the Head Coach of the Golden Tide CCBC team.

The HarbourCats open on the road May 31 in Kamloops, the start of back-to-back series in Kamloops and Kelowna, before returning for the June 7 home opener against Wenatchee. The HarbourCats will be on the road this summer in Kamloops, Kelowna, Edmonton, Wenatchee, Ridgefield, Port Angeles, Bellingham, and six games in Nanaimo against the Island-rival NightOwls at Serauxmen Stadium. Teams visiting Victoria this year are Wenatchee, Nanaimo, Bellingham, Port Angeles, Kelowna, Edmonton (two series), Kamloops and Corvallis, along with non-league games against the Redmond Dudes, Dub Sea Fishsticks, the SIBL All-Stars, and Victoria Mavericks All-Stars.

The regular season runs until August 7, with WCL playoffs running from August 10 to August 16.

Single game tickets are now available for the HarbourCats 2024 season including the home opener on Friday, June 7, 2024 at 6:35pm against the Kamloops NorthPaws. These can be purchased online through our one and only ticketing partner, Select Your Tickets, at www.harbourcats.com/tickets or at the HarbourCats office at 101-1814 Vancouver Street.

Season tickets and 10-game flex packs are also now on sale via the HarbourCats office or by calling 778-265-0327.

Victoria HarbourCats – Manny Ramirez’s two sons sign with HarbourCats

Published

on

April 4 2024

VICTORIA, B.C. — Their father was once the most-feared hitter in the Major Leagues, a perennial all-star with a big personality who won a World Series, a batting title, and could change any game with one swing.

Manny Ramirez Jr., 21 (pictured above left), and Lucas Ramirez, 18 (pictured above right), carry the same potential — Manny Jr., a booming right-handed power hitter, with Lucas a lefty with a power stroke who has committed to the University of Tennessee for the fall.

Both outfielders who can DH, Manny Jr. and Lucas are excited to be coming to Victoria, to further develop under Head Coach Todd Haney, a former MLB player, and a coaching staff that also includes former pro player and coach Scott Anderson and former MLB pitcher Steve Sinclair.

“These are notable signings not just for us, but for the entire West Coast League — this will be exciting news for our fans and sponsors, no question,” said Jim Swanson of the HarbourCats. “They come highly recommended by our former pitching coach, Alec Adame, who is coaching Manny Jr. at ELAC (East LA College). It’s been a pleasure working with the family to set this all up, and we know Victoria will welcome them all with open arms — to the city rated the best city in the world. Alec was here in 2015 and knows how great the baseball environment is at Wilson’s Group Stadium at RAP.”

So far this spring Manny Jr. leads ELAC with three home runs and has 18 runs driven in over 20 games, adding nine doubles and walking 14 times. The 6-3/210 outfielder is a freshman who is a product of Calvary Christian high school in Clearwater, FL.

Lucas is a graduating high school senior at powerful American Heritage in Florida and is a possible high-round pick in the upcoming draft thanks to already developing power from the left side. He is already built like a pro at 6-3/200.

They have a tremendous baseball role model to aspire to. Manny Ramirez played 19 seasons and batted .312 with 555 home runs, the 15th highest total in MLB history — he starred for Cleveland, Boston, and the Dodgers, and finished with time for the Chicago White Sox and Tampa Bay Rays. He was a 12-time all-star, was MVP of the 2004 World Series when the Red Sox ended their long title drought, won the 2002 American League batting title, and was the Hank Aaron Award winner in 1999 and 2004. He was also part of a second Red Sox team to win the World Series in 2007, and hit more post-season home runs (29) than anyone else in the history of the game. He finished top-10 in MVP voting in the American League eight years in a row (1998-2005).

The HarbourCats open on the road May 31 in Kamloops, the start of back-to-back series in Kamloops and Kelowna, before returning for the June 7 home opener against Wenatchee. The HarbourCats will be on the road this summer in Kamloops, Kelowna, Edmonton, Wenatchee, Ridgefield, Port Angeles, Bellingham, and six games in Nanaimo against the Island-rival NightOwls at Serauxmen Stadium. Teams visiting Victoria this year are Wenatchee, Nanaimo, Bellingham, Port Angeles, Kelowna, Edmonton (two series), Kamloops and Corvallis, along with non-league games against the Redmond Dudes, Dub Sea Fishsticks, the SIBL All-Stars, and Victoria Mavericks All-Stars.

The regular season runs until August 7, with WCL playoffs running from August 10 to August 16.

Single game tickets are now available for the HarbourCats 2024 season including the home opener on Friday, June 7, 2024 at 6:35pm against the Kamloops NorthPaws. These can be purchased online at www.harbourcats.com/tickets or at the HarbourCats office at 101-1814 Vancouver Street.

Season tickets and 10-game flex packs are also now on sale via the HarbourCats office or by calling 778-265-0327.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  If you are a 2023 Season Ticket holder who has not yet renewed your seats for the 2024 season, please do so by April 15th, 2024 or your seats will be released and available to the public for sale. Please call Christian at 778-265-0327 ASAP to renew your seats.
