Surrey Glaciers.gif

The only professional baseball team in the history of Surrey, BC, the Surrey Glaciers were charter members of the new Western Baseball League in 1995. Managed by Dick Phillips, the Glaciers won the first-half north division title at 26-16 but imploded in the second half by going 12-36, then losing both playoff games to the Tri-City Posse. Attendance was 53,769, edging the Bend Bandits to avoid being the worst draw in the circuit (Bend drew 304 fans fewer). One bright spot was the performance of Joe Strong (8-9, 2.75), who finished fourth in the WL in ERA, tied for second in strikeouts (129) and second in complete games (9).
