Vancouver Canadians

From BR Bullpen


Team History[edit]


The Vancouver Canadians played in the Pacific Coast League from 1978 until 1999. That year, in their final year, they won the Triple-A World Series. After that season, the club was moved to California and became the Sacramento River Cats. After they left, a team in the Northwest League (formerly the Southern Oregon Timberjacks) began play with the same name. Both teams called Nat Bailey Stadium home.
