Mar 30 2023, 5:48 pm

You’ll hear the crack of the bat and the crackle of fireworks when baseball returns to Nat Bailey Stadium next Friday.

Vancouver Canadians baseball is back starting on April 7, and the team has released its promotional schedule ahead of the first pitch.

Highlighting the schedule are seven games that will end with a bang, including the season opener, as fans are treated to a post-game fireworks extravaganza.

The Canadians begin their season with a three-game series against the Spokane Indians. Fans can enjoy an evening ball game and fireworks on Friday, April 7, followed by two matinee matches on Saturday, April 8 and Sunday, April 9.

Vancouver Canadians tickets start at $20 and can be purchased online here, over the phone at 604-872 5232, or in person at the Nat Bailey Box Office.
