Victoria HarbourCats | HarbourCats Now Taking Reservations for 2021 Upper Deck and Third Base Party Deck Areas

Published

on

We don’t know what we don’t know, but what we DO know, is that when we are given permission to play, we will play and we want fans to be ready to play along with us!

February 12, 2021

VICTORIA, BC – As we wait to see what happens in the next couple of months and for, hopefully, the full go-ahead to play baseball at Wilson’s Group Stadium in 2021, we are proceeding optimistically and are making plans for the season, so that we are ready to play when it is time to safely play.

And we want you and your group to come and play with us and celebrate a return to HarbourCats baseball!

To that end, when we get the go-ahead, we expect that our two unique group party areas, the Strathcona Rooftop Third Base Party Deck and the Wilson’s Group Upper Deck Experience, will be in high demand.

To be ready for that and to make sure you and your group have a chance to join us when we return, we are now taking reservations for both group areas for the proposed 2021 season.

We need to do this now, so that if we happen to receive short notice that we can play, for example in mid-May, we are ready to go, rather than rushing to get those areas reserved and everyone ticketed at the last minute.

A list of available dates can be found below for each area (note some dates already taken by groups who had reserved dates in 2020).

Reserve your group now so you don’t miss out on the return of HarbourCats baseball!

The Strathcona Rooftop Third Base Party Deck

Please note, as in past years, a non-refundable $500.00 deposit is required to hold your date.  This is then applied to your final total and invoice, closer to the event, once we determine final numbers, food costs, etc.  Full payment is usually required at that time, usually two weeks prior to the event.

Your deposit also guarantees you a spot for 2022, should we need to make any cancellations to the schedule due to any continuing COVID-19 protocols.

All dates and group bookings above are subject to change pending any relevant COVID-19 health protocols or decisions that are made between now and the start of our 2021 season.  Also, in the event that we are required to enforce and implement socially distanced occupancy in our group areas as part of this, we will advise of this accordingly and adapt with you as needed to accommodate your group as we can, or alternatively move you to a date in 2022 when restrictions are relaxed.

More information on our group party areas can be found on our web site at https://harbourcats.com/group-party-deck-options/

To book your spot, or for more information on any of the HarbourCats 2021 group party deck options, please contact Christian Stewart, Assistant General Manager, Ticketing and Media via e-mail (chris@harbourcats.com) or phone 778-265-0327 (office).

Office hours through February are Tuesday to Friday 10am to 5pm.

Veteran outfielder returning for 2023 season

Published

on

For Brandon Hupe, it felt like unfinished business — and he has a chance to fix that.

 

The outfielder from Vancouver and the UBC Thunderbirds saw his 2022 summer season cut short following a collision during a game in Port Angeles. But the 6-2/200 pounder, a junior at UBC, will get one last shot to star for Head Coach Greg Frady as the Nanaimo NightOwls are excited to announce his return to the WCL.

 

The NightOwls are announcing the additions of four players today, the others being infielder Jimmy Legg of Pomona Pitzer, and pitchers Tyson Willis and Ethan Hubbell from Everett CC (NWAC) for Pitching Coach Gorm Heimueller to work with.

 

Hupe (pronounced who-PAY) was a veteran influence on a young NightOwls team, hitting .283 with two home runs and nine runs driven in over 17 games — coming off a UBC season that yielded 12 home runs and 48 RBIs in 49 games at the NAIA level.

 

“We missed Brandon when he got hurt, there was a change in our team,” said Frady. “Brandon was one of our key leaders, he knew the caliber and nuances of the league (previously played in the WCL with Kelowna), and he helped us as coaches, along with leading our younger players.”

 

In Legg, the NightOwls are getting a 5-11/185 scrappy, switch-hitting shortstop who can also move to second or third — known as a guy who always seems to be on base, comes through in the clutch and runs well. At Pomona Pitzer, he is a glue guy because of how much he loves to play the game.

 

The two Everett CC arms include Willis, a Snohomish, WA product who pitched in the WCL for Springfield in 2022. The right-hander is touching 90 with a true hard curveball and developing changeup from a 6-4/220 frame. Hubbell, from Camas, WA, is even bigger at 6-5, another righty with upper-80s velocity and command of four pitches and a workhorse mentality.

Victoria HarbourCats – ‘Cats sign four, bring back Seward and Luchies

Published

on

December 7, 2022

For Immediate Release

VICTORIA, B.C. — It’s the old baseball adage — you can never have enough arms.

The Victoria HarbourCats have added three arms, two of them returning and one a local product, as part of four more players who have signed on for the 2023 West Coast League season. The fourth player on the roster comes from a dependable source of quality players — Cal Baptist.

Pitchers Jack Seward and Owen Luchies, both parts of the 2022 HarbourCats team that reached the WCL post-season, and Victoria Golden Tide ace Brady Wilson lead the latest signings, with versatile outfielder/second baseman Nick Dumesnil, a right-handed hitter from Huntington Beach, CA, a bat the team will look to for key offensive production. Dumesnil is 6-2/205 freshman and is known for a mix of speed and power that will be welcomed by Head Coach Todd Haney.

“We’ve spent even more time on pitching this year, it’s always a premium but it’s never easy to get that right mix for the staff — it’s the one area we are constantly looking to get better,” said Haney. “We’ve been known as a strong offensive team since even before I got here, and we know the best arms make all the difference.”

Vancouver product Jack Seward, now at Central Arizona, was 1-0 with three saves and a 1.15 ERA in 14 outings last summer, giving up earned runs in only two outings. He surrendered just 10 hits in 23 innings. Luchies, from Victoria, is a 6-2/195 pound freshman at Lower Columbia (NWAC) who started five games and threw 36 innings for the HarbourCats in 2022. He had 25 strikeouts, notched one save, was 2-2 with a 6.44 ERA and earned road wins in Port Angeles and Nanaimo.

Wilson, 6-1/175 from Calgary, was the workhorse for the Victoria collegiate Golden Tide in the spring of 2022, going a combined 3-4 with a 4.06 ERA in nine starts. He then spent the summer in the Western Canada Baseball League with the Fort McMurray Giants, where he was 5-5/4.94.

The HarbourCats celebrate their 10th Anniversary in 2023 and the season kicks off with the home opener against the Kamloops NorthPaws on Friday June 2, 2023.  Single game tickets for that game and all 31 HarbourCats home games in 2023 are now on sale and can be purchased on-line through our one-and-only ticketing partner, Select Your Tickets, at harbourcats.com/tickets.  They can also be purchased at the HarbourCats office at 101-1814 Vancouver Street, or at the Select Your Tickets box office at Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre.  Fans can also call 778-265-0327 to order over the phone.

Season tickets and 10-game flex packs are also now on sale.  For details on all ticketing options, including our special $10.00 Tuesdays, Forces Fridays and Save-on-Food Vouchers, please visit harbourcats.com/ticketinfo
