VANCOUVER, BC – The Vancouver Canadians are excited to announce the return of Pride Night for the 2022 season. This year’s celebration of “Baseball For All” will take place on Thursday, July 28 at Nat Bailey Stadium when the C’s host the Everett AquaSox (Mariners). Gates open at 6:00 p.m. and first pitch is set for 7:05 p.m. The first 2,500 fans to enter the ballpark will receive a Pride flag.
Baseball is a game for everyone, and the Canadians are firm believers that The Nat – and every ballpark across the globe – should be a place where every fan is made to feel comfortable in a safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment while rooting on their favorite team.
The C’s have partnered with Vancouver Pride Society, the West End Slo-pitch Association (WESA) and the Mabel League on this year’s edition of the annual event. Pride t-shirts and Pride pins will be available for purchase, with net proceeds benefitting those three organizations. Tickets and more information are available at CanadiansBaseball.com.
