Hit a Mother’s Day home run with Vancouver Canadians baseball next week

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and the Vancouver Canadians are ready to treat you and that special mom to thrilling baseball in support of a great cause.

The 2023 Northwest League Champions are back at Rogers Field at Nat Bailey Stadium to take on the Everett Aquasox in a Mother’s Day series from Tuesday, May 7, to Sunday, May 12.

As always, the Canadians have plenty of exciting promotional games planned that are sure to please the whole family, including a visit by Blue Jays All-Star alum Marco Estrada, giveaways, and more.

Sunday’s game will not only be a celebration of mothers, but partial proceeds from the games’ ticket sales will go towards the BC Cancer Foundation.

“We are excited to partner with the BC Cancer Foundation for both our Mother’s Day and Father’s Day games this season,” said Canadians Assistant General Manager Stephani Ellis in a release. “BC Cancer Foundation is a pillar in our community for those who have been impacted by a cancer diagnosis or those who know someone who has been diagnosed.

“Our fans, players, and staff are committed to helping BC Cancer Foundation further their mission as they bring light to those going through one of life’s biggest challenges: battling and beating cancer.”

The Canadians have announced that $5 from each ticket sold for the Mother’s Day and Father’s Day games will support BC Cancer’s important work. Representatives from the foundation will be at Nat Bailey Stadium to answer any questions plus help those with donation requests.
