HarbourCats head home for final weekend series of the season, with plenty of fun promotional options in store
July 27, 2023
VICTORIA, B.C. — Fireworks after a jam-packed Friday, and a free funeral — yes, a free funeral, the last prize you ever need to win.
Promotional weekends don’t get much more packed than this one, with the playoff-chasing rival Kelowna Falcons in town to face the Victoria HarbourCats for a Friday-Saturday-Sunday series, with two evening games and a Sunday matinee.
Here’s how it stacks up, with something for everyone:
FRIDAY (6:35pm, gates at 5:30pm) — It’s a Galaxy Motors FORCES FRIDAY, as all Fridays are with the HarbourCats, and it’s BC Transit Day at the Park — special giveaways, and the 50-50 benefitting Tour De Rock.
SATURDAY (6:35pm, gates at 5pm) — It’s FIREWORKS! Last one of the year, with Joan Wallace Driving School, and welcoming groups from the Victoria Royals, Red Arrow Brewing and Martha’s Delectables. This fireworks game will be a super-busy one, potential for a crowd over 5,000 making for an even better atmosphere.
SUNDAY (1pm, gates at noon) — Yes, you can win a FREE FUNERAL, with HW Wallace Cremation and Burial Centre, with a will package from Mary McManus at Stevenson Doell Law, and an insurance and financial review with Mike Reilly of Gaining Altitude Financial. It’s our highest-value giveaway of the season — and you must be in attendance to win the prize.
“This is the time of year when the playoff chase and the promotions hit a fever pitch at Wilson’s Group Stadium,” said Christian Stewart, GM of the HarbourCats. “There is a lot going on off the field, and the team is 20-1 on home field and contending for a WCL championship. People come to our games for the baseball, but also for the promotions and the food trucks — lots come by bike this time of year, with great bike racks inside the complex.”
The HarbourCats are mired in a second-half playoff battle and as of Thursday morning, sit two games back of the Wenatchee AppleSox for the second–half title. The Cats are also in the wild card running and currently hold down the third seed in the North. The ‘Cats are on the road Thursday night to complete a series with Kamloops, having won 2-0 on Tuesday and then dropped a 6-3 decision Wednesday. They will look to keep pace in the Division by winning the series tonight.
Following the weekend series with Kelowna the ‘Cats welcome the Nanaimo NightOwls to town on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, the final regular season home games of the season. They then hit the road for the final series of the season in Edmonton.
PLAYOFFS: Should the HarbourCats win the second-half title, the first home playoff game will be on Wednesday, August 9th at 6:35 pm with a potential game three in the series on Thursday August 10th. Should the HarbourCats clinch a wild card spot, the first home playoff game will be on Tuesday August 8th at 6:35 pm. Tickets for any potential playoff games will go on sale on Tuesday August 1st.
